Having post problems here are the setups

-Sony 52X Internal IDE CD-ROM Drive
-AMD Athlon XP 1900+ 1.6GHz Processor
-Western Digital Caviar WD200BB 20GB ATA/100 7200RPM
-Corsair CM64SD256-2700CX2H 256MB PC2700 333MHz DDR DIMM
-Asus A7S333 SiS745 Athlon(XP)/Duron SktA DDR333 ATX Motherboard w/6 Channel Audio
-Netgear NT FA311 10/100 PCI NIC
-Gainward GeForce4 PowerPack! Pro/600TV GeForce4 MX440 64MB DDR Video Card w/TV Out
-Microsoft Windows XP Pro

Here's what happens I can post, boot, load an operating system everything, on the first time I boot. The second time I try to boot I can't post. I take the cmos battery out and reset the bios and I can boot again it takes me straight into the bios and says the bios has gone into safe mode because of my cpu setting. It doesn't matter if I put the cpu at 1200 mghz or 1600 mghz I still get the same results. I built 2 systems exactly the same and they are having the same exact problem. Anyone some suggestions please!

What are your memory settings? I think something is set wrong or too agressively in the BIOS.

No, the memory settings. Cas latency, etc. Do you have a 'Failsafe defaults' option, or something similar?

Sorry, the setting is "By SPD". The Motherboard reads from the EEPROM of the Ram to find out the default settings for the ram. As for loading the fail safe settings on the motherboard, Mine doesn't have that option (I wish it did.) Is there any where I can get some manual setting for the ram. Specifically

CAS Latency
Ras to Cas Delay
Ras Precharge time
Ras Active time

I tried the corsair site but they are worthless either that or I was looking in the wrong place. I can list the individual setting that the ram is using by default tomorrow. The system is at my house. Any more ideas would be much appreciated!

Set them to 2.5 or 3 instead of 2. If that works, you can try lowering them till you start having problems.

CAS is likely 2.5

It can be said that smoking is one of the leading cause of statistics.

And you're saying there's no abnormal behavior during the first time you start your computer, yet when you do the Restart Of Doom it all fails?
