A got my friend to by a new Athlon C 1.2G machine a few
Since its a 'C' core, the FSB is 133Mhz with a 9.0x multiplier.
They assembled the box at the store and it booted up
just fine at 1200 mhz. He takes it home and install
Win2K server on it and after a few days the he got a
BIOS error and it defaulted back to 900 mhz (100Mhz FSB).
I asked him to bring it work and he did. I took a look at
it and change the FSB back to 133Mhz and it worked just
fine. He told me that he pressed the reset button when he
got the BIOS error which on his mobo will reset the BIOS
back to the default configuration. So problem solved, I
figured. Anyway, he comes back a couple of days later and
says that it happened again! this time I'm a confused.
Its not a heat issue, his CPU temps are below 40C. The
only thing I can think of is maybe its a power supply issue.
He's got a generic 300W power supply and I told him that
maybe he should get an Enermax 350. He hasn't yet but
I would like to know if there are any other possible
