    Go back to 100MHz then and Load Safe Defaults (or appropriate) in BIOS and then change the FSB. ;)

    Just out of curiosity what memory do ya have there? :?:

    If that doesnt work... since your changing your FSB in the BIOS, your MoBo might want a Jumper set to something to enable a Jumper-Free BIOS (Sounds redundant, huh) ... so then you gotta bust out your manual and read the 2-5pg section on Jumpers.

    It's very unusual as I find Gigabyte boards to be the quickest and easiest to setup. :confused:

    I decided not to touch giga**** again Ive had way to many problems with it.
    Just the other day I was asked to build
    GA-7VAX rig for someone and the mobo came in faulty
    but I'm with the guys you should be able to change the FSB to 133 in the BIOS. Most cases the Jumpers are set for the bios to make the decision

    Okay, well the memory is Kingston DDR333 512K. The specific model I have is listed at the Gigabyte site as being supported. However, obviously I'll only get 266 out of it, correct?

    K, Found that the CK_RATIO for the 2100+ on board should be 13.0x The highest setting beside AUTO is >=12.5x Tried that, but no change

    Okay, loaded 'Fail Safe' Bios, at it's default display is set to PCI, so I have to change it to AGP. Also, Boot first is set to HD0 then CD-ROM. So I have to change it to CD-ROM then HD0 or it hangs.

    But still, video support at 100Mhz and none at 133Mhz.

    I really wish I had a spare true 4x VC at work, that's where I'm at now.

    Alright, got to the BIOS with 100Mhz set on the MB. I got the choice in the BIOS for CPU Host Frequency(Mhz) MIN=100 MAX=132 (not a typo). If I try to choose one of them, I get an area to type 'Key in a DEC number:' I'm assuming this is where I would put the 132. But I'll wait to here from you to be sure.

    My PCI/AGP Frequency(Mhz) looks unchangeable at 33/66

    Don't see anything for voltage changing besides AGP OverVoltage. But I just wanna get it to boot, before I try any overclocking.

    EDIT If I type in 132 the AGP Mhz goes to 44/88!

    hmmm... maybe this is it?!?!

    Now, what to do to get it to work?

    I can't find a way to change the AGP voltage in the BIOS

    Okay, Looks like apperently Googlegear must have been holding on to this MB for a while. The bios is vF7 which you can't even get from the manufacturer anymore. They're now up to vF9, vF8 was back in October'02.

    Guess, I'll do the new BIOS and maybe we'll work then.

    Thanks for all the help guys, you all rock! :cheers:

    Okay guys,

    I'm 95% sure the motherboard is bad.

    RAM tested on another machine, FINE
    Harddrive tested on another machine, FINE
    Videocard from another machine that works, NO CHANGE
    Reinstalled each component again including motherboard to case, NO CHANGE
    Don't have another machine to test CPU, but figure 'more-than-likely' if it's bad, it wouldn't do anything
    Now the system is starting to hang at random points! At boot, copying win files, etc.

    Does this seem correct in that it would be a bad motherboard?

    Thanks for all the help, I think this is the best explaination, just want feedback before I got pick one up from the local store and install the new one.
