View Full Version : XP unlocked or not

When I check the Bios I can change the multiplier on my XP.
But when I use SiSoft Sandra 2001 it doesn't show a larger multiplier. Is there special software to check the multiplier or do
I have to take out my magifying glass and check the bridges?
I hope the first, because I just put my system back together this evening.

All AthlonXP's are delivered locked but to unlock it check out this link. ;)

Hey Wiggo! Long time no see! I've been somewhat occupied with winemaking these past... Anyone know if you can use artic silver II to bridge the L1 pins? I believe it's pretty conductive. and to fill the laser gaps, how about RTV blue silicon.. you know.. that blue stuff that's used in automotive stuff, and has a high heat tolerance..

Just wondering.

Hi long time no hear. :wave:
Actually superglu or clear nail polish will do the holes but I'm not sure if ASII will have the impedence to do the job of bridgin' though.:?:
If ya try it let us know.
A windsreen defogger repair kit will do the job though. ;)

Good to see you got yourself registered again Frost. I also haven't heard of ASII being able to do that.

Yeah even though it's conductive it's probably no more so than a pencil which isn't enough and the bridges need a certain amount of current if its to work. :smokin:

Well, ASII has a lot of silver in it, that's for sure.. guess I'll have to get out the Ohm meter and do a little spot on some piece of plastic and let ya all know.. Upside is nearly all the OC'er out there have that in a drawer, if it works.. Downside, is it's a messy little compound, but surely can't be any messier than some of the conductive silver stuff in the jar or that conductive ink pen.

Also here's a trick to pass along guys. I wear glasses and have bifocals (I'm old.. 48). But that's not enough, so I use a pair of large reading glasses at 2.25+ diopter.. now that helps a lot put over my regular glasses, but still not what I'm looking for. So, I use scotch tape and put a piece of magnifying glass on the right lense towards the bottom where I look through (on top the reading glasses). When you do your work that pin point looks like a bloody chisel that way. so you can use much care, and really really get a "on hands" look at what needs to be done and how it's going.

Just thought I'd pass that one on.
