If no other "outside influences" are present, CPU speed is determined by the clock generator chip settings and by the CPU BF pin settings. 1) Please make sure that all of the motherboard jumpers are set correctly and that they are functioning properly. 2) Stick a counter on the clock generator chip ...

Is the optional Hardware Monitor chip installed?

If so, is the CPU Slow Down feature being activated?



Thanks.

Does this issue occur when a DOS test utility (such as CHKCPU) is used?

Get yourself a DVM and check for the presence of +5V.

If you don't have this, no amount of cabling "fixes" will help you.


Thanks.

Are you getting +5V on the designated power pins?

Are you sure?

I couldn't verify this in the CPU datasheets.

The only way to measure the actual voltage you have there is to use a (calibrated) DVM on the fully loaded supply.

I'm not sure if this RAM will work.


1) Qty: 8 MT4LC16M4T8TG-5 (4Mx16), 64 MB, 3.3V, 4K refresh, FPM

2) Qty: 4 KM41C16000CK-6 (16Mx1), 8 MB, 5V, 4K refresh, FPM (For the parity bit?)


Are these double-sided?


Thanks.

Unfortunately they are HP, and HP produced proprietary pinouts for servers. And herein lies the rub. The next problem you will run into is powering the larger SIMMS. Are you sure that the on-board regulator can handle the extra load? If you do happen to find them, only the following 64 Mbit Technol...

The motherboard manual says: · DRAM MEMORY - 2 banks 72 pins SIMM module socket on board. - Use 4 / 8 / 16 / 32 / 64 /128 MB 60~70 ns SIMM module DRAM. - 8 ~ 512 MB DRAM size. - Support Fast Page / EDO DRAM access mode. So it supports 128mbyte x 4 simm stick = 512Mbyte of RAM. AFAIK, 32 MB (16 Mbit...

An Intel 82430HX PCIset will support up to 512 MB FP or EDO SIMM RAM (8 Rows, 16 Mbit and 64 Mbit Technology).

Since your board only has 4 Rows, you are SOL for anything more than 128 MB. :(


In any case, Jan should be able to patch the BIOS if you send him a copy.


Thanks.
