I replaced the 1.3ghz T-Bird with a 3000+ and I am not sure where to set the CPU speed, I get the options of ...

Manual
1050mhz
1400mgh
1750MHz
2100MHz

Then I tried to get into windows and I was unable to do so, it just got stuck, then I decided that I may need to install winXP again and I can get into the setup but it gets to setuo is loading files then it just hangs,

I did have my C partitioned to have Vista on there.

Please help.

It needs to be 2100. Are you using the proper ram? if u didnt replace the ram, than i'm sure your using pc 2100. you need pc 3200 or maybee even pc 2700. Is the FSB 333 or 400?

How do I tell the FSB or the memory? I am not very good at this.

Well i looked it up, since the option is 2100 instead of 2167, it's FSB is 400. You should just know your RAM, plus CPU-Z will tell you
but ur gonna want to get some DDR 400

I looked up the FSB using the model # on the dye and its states 333FSB if that means anything, I wonder if my bios settings are off.

Does your BIOS support the Barton 3000+ core?
If it does it should recognise it and set the required clock speed and core voltage (etc), if not you might have to put the old CPU back in, update the BIOS, then fit the new processor.

I had this combo just a month ago (barton 3000+ 400 mhz bus and a7v600-x series) and the mainboard fried and i sold everything else lol...
first u need to set it to 2100 ... ... then u need a 400 watts of real power to feed this beast ... otherwise ur system will crash constantly ...i hated asus for not choosing and standalone 4 pin power supplier for the cpu ...choose ddr400 ...i had 266 and was crap doom freezes in some scenarios and other problems ...
and obviusly upgrade your bios if the problems persist (be sure of the exact model ,mine was a7v600-x ... u need a floppy disk) http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguag... (socket a 462 )
remember to read the instructions to upgrade ur bios... and only do it if u bought the correct power supply 400 real power ... an the memory 400 ddr ... and the problems persist...
apparently ur bios is detecting ur cpu correctly i think must be the power supply ....
I hope this helps and forgive my bad english im from south america peru....

I dont have a floppy disk, and is the 400 watt PSU a recommendation or a must? It's currently 350 watt psu.

I got a brand new floppy drive, I was able to update the bios, I entered XP installation, hit F6 for satat drives, placed the floppy, it started to read it and I get this error message...

file txtsetup.oem caused an unexpected error (512) at line 1747 in d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c.

So thats where I am.

I was able to get the the floppy to install the drivers but now it gets to "setup is starting windows" and it just hangs there.

Any suggestions?

The 400 watts psu its a must have... otherwise strange things happens frecuently ... that was my case ... i read every post in almost every fuc...ing country and always the same problems with the psu ... 400 man just get one...

Try to set the processor in 333 mhz .... what ddr u have 266mhz (ddr 2100) / 333mhz (ddr2700) / 400mhz (ddr3200) according to this set up ur speed processor ... x example ddr 333 processor 333 and therefore lower speed 1766 aprox... 400 processor 2100 speed ...266 processor 1400 aprox...

350 watts never enough for this mainboard in particular ... the processor its 2 damn powerfull 2100 (for that time)
and asus doesnt built in a standalone 4 pin power connector for the cpu...

Just ask any friend 4 a 400 psu just to make sure and test it...

I hope this could help u ... once again forgive my bad english....
