Okay.. here goes......
I had this:
MS-6368 VER2.1: (not sure of bios level)
PIII 1000/256/133 (which I'm guessing is 1GHz, 256cache, FSB 133)
133MHz 128MB RAM
I had some problems with the PC starting to lock up a lot.... i went to reformat the HDD and install windows 2000 instead of Win ME. So... there was a problem with the MOBO and instead of getting a whole new setup.. i just purchased another MS-6368 off the net so that it would be easy swap things out.
Well this is what I received:
MS-6368 VER5: BIOS 6.0
Everything else is still the same except instead of having an external PCI ethernet card,the new board had the integrated ethernet.
NOW... the real problem...
Everything is setup right, jumpers are all correct.. only have Mouse, keyboard, monitor connected.... 1 HDD. 1 Floppy.....
Tries to do the bootup of the motherboard.. it displays the BOARD and BIOS version (for a millisecond), then the machine powers itself off..
It has NOT displayed the processor information...
So, does this mean that it cannot read the processor information correctly, or that maybe the process was supported on v2.1, but not on v5: of the motherboard?
Bios is almost at latest level.. board is BRAND NEW... the only thing is that the Heatsink was dislodged off the top of the CPU thus the 'thermal' glue as messed up.
Somebody help me!
I need to get this working soon.
