I may be repeating a question here--but are you sure that board can support a 1.3? My first Athlon board (an EPoX Slot A) supported up to 800. Later hardware revisions of the same basic design (read, not a BIOS upgrade, but a hardware upgrade) would support up to 1GHz (I never got an updated board--I just jumped straight to a Socket A board when the time came). You may have the same situation with your Abit board...take note of the board's hardware revision.

init: Just what do you think you're doing, Dave?
I get the same problem whenever I use referance drivers later than 6.72. I have however got 7.62 to complete once and did get higher scores, just unstable. I can't even get 10.xx and above to run the program without all kind of errors. I say try nvidia driver 6.50 or 6.72 and see if it fixes it.
Well, the ABit KT7 says it supports everything from 1.2gig and any future Socket A processors... Now, the multiplier on it only goes to 12.5.. So I set the bios to automatic configuration for a 1250. When I boot is says 104x12.5 1300.. So it does the overclock of the FSB on its own.
I was really wondering if that 4mhz FSB OC might be causing problems..

Do you have a 300 w powersupply?
One more thing - I remember AMD removed one of the Arbitboards from the recommened list. I dont know if it was the one you have.
<b>When I boot is says 104x12.5 1300.. So it does the overclock of the FSB on its own.</b>
There is a new <b>BIOS</b> for KT7 series (ZT) on Athlonmb.com
1. Adds three new options to enhance the system compatibility
Delay transaction .
PCI master read caching .
PCI master time-out
Set above options to Disabled / Disabled / 0 may help SB Live 5.1 sound issue. If the system experiences low performance after these settings, enable the PCI master read cachingplease.
<b>2. Fixes the issue Athlon 1.3G(100) wrongfully recognized as 104x12.5.</b>
3. Adds an option State after power failure.
4. Set all four IDE devices to AUTO.
5. Set the default year to 2001.
6. BIOS compile date: 05/11/2001
