Hey

Have you checked your BIOS settings to see if there are any problems in there? At what point does the computer stop booting up?

Well thanks you plp for your interest. Ive got Windows XP Pro and an AusA7v_E mobo and ive reverted back to my Athlon 750 mhz. Ive successfully updated my bios. Dont see why there should be a problem. But i've been told an upgrade will barely be recognisable anyway.The machine stops responding directly after POST after correctly identifying the new chip as an Athlon 1Ghz. The curser blinks away quite happily (it doesnt freeze), but nothing happens after this. It doesnt boot into Windows. I've checked my cmos but there doesnt appear to be anything untoward there.

If you have installed a new processor on your PC you MUST format it so windows can recognize it. Windows will not start with the new processor because it hasn't been configured to work with it. The configuration of the processor only takes places at the windows installation, so that's the reason why you MUST format it.

Good Luck, C00I90WN
