Ok, before I even start describing my problem: I don't want suggestions to upgrade, etc - I'm working with a budget!
I have a machine in my hands, which has been stripped-down, repaired and reinstated. Sadly, because of the customer's son, multiple parts have been ordered to replace some damaged parts. However, I have been given permission to speed it up a little.
The machine is an AMD K6-2/450, with onboard Sis530 graphics and onboard ESS sound.
What I am looking for is a utility which will allow me to increase the memory and/or clock speed of the graphics. The FSB is maxed out at default 100 FSB (4.5 x 100, 2.2v) - which is the highest this board will go!
Although irrelevant to this forum, but any ideas to overclock the AMD will be appreciated. Have tried 5.0 x 100 @ 2.2v as well as incresing the voltage to 2.3 - no success!
I believe the motherboard is an Acer, but I definetly know it's a V75M model.
I managed to pump the baby from 450MHz to 500MHz, however using 2.8v. I'm too wuss to push it 3.3v to get 550MHz, LOL :redface: . Albeit, runs rather happily using the bog standard HSF - if I tried to get a better HSF, I wouldn't be able to mount the drives in that wonderful-yet-annoying caddy which houses the FDD and HD.
What I really want is to get the onboard graphics up a few notches.
I must admit, I am VERY dissapointed to see that IBM put a Seagate in their machine....amongst other cheapest-of-cheap cr@p. Oh well....!
Anyhow, if nothing else, this bumps the thread up. Hope somebody out there can help me!
