Hi guys, maybe you can help me out here a bit cauze it seems i’m out of my league
I bought a brand new mobo (asus A7V333) and cpu (Athlon XP 2100) yesterday, and still i am trying to get it to run…
Thing is, i havent got past the fisrt screen yet, hardware monitor comes up with an error: the core voltage is 2.2v (instead of 1.75v which the normal right?) and the cpu temp goes in a few mins from 50 to 75deg (that’s when i shut it down …)
I have set all jumpers to default which enables the bios to set the core voltage. Setting the voltage to lower levels from the bios does not work, as it remains high and stable (aka 2.2v and all in red)
Setting the jumpers manually to lower voltage levels (bios independent) does not have any effect as the voltage remains high.
I have updated the bios version to the latest to no avail.
It is the first time i m setting an amd system, hope you have some suggestions
