first off, i dont know what to set my FSB speed to, and second how do I update my BIOS?
A 2800+ Barton runs at an FSB of 166 and a 12.5 multiplier.
Look on your motherboards website for your mobo. Go into the BIOS or
downloads area and download the newest BIOS. You will have to unzip it to
a floppy disk. then reboot the computer whilst booting to floppy. Then you
should get a DOS prompt. Type the BIOS name and extension.
ie: p4p800.rom.While your at the mobo's website, make sure you read their
instructions on how to Flash the BIOS...it will explain it better than i can.
Once the BIOS is flashed, you will have to reboot, and enter the BIOS.
All the settings will probably be set back to default, so you'll have to
make any necessary adjustments. GL
OOps...i forgot. Print out , or write(if no printer) the flashing instructions,
so that you can follow them while your flashing. :wink:
