I was too poor to afford a GFD, so by using Tom's Hardware Guide, I tried to solder my 750 mhz athlon to it's actual core speed of 900 mhz. While I was doing this, I lost a few resistors and I think I burned off some of the silver dots that hold the resistors on the board. Now the computer will turn on, but nothing will appear on the screen. There is nothing wrong with the cpu otherwise. Can somebody tell me if a goldfinger device will be able to set the CPU at the proper voltage and multiplier setting, even with a few resistors in the voltage and multiplier section missing? I don't want to buy another Athlon.(I know, I'm an idiot. I blame it on my stupid brain) HEEEEELLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPP!!!!!!!
Yep, ECS SIS 735 board for $60 and a Duron for $30 would be faster and you will still be able to use your SDram until you can afford the DDR ram, has slots for both. Unless you want to buy my GFD laying around my home.
