Cel 333a OC boots veeery slow, know why?
I have a Commate P2BXA motherboard with a Celeron 333a and 64MB RAM. It has Award BIOS V.4.51, I went into the BIOS setup and changed the CPU host clock setting from auto to 75Mhz, this changed the processor speed from 333 to 375Mhz. After saving these settings and restarting the PC it went through the boot process and actually booted up into Win98 but it took literally 20 minutes both times I did this. Does anyone know what may be wrong? I didn't change any jumper settings or anything else. I set the BIOS settings back to default and it works fine just like before but only att 333. Can this system not be overclocked, or if so what am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.
To run a C333 at 375 should be save.
Try to change the PIO-Mode of your HD(s).
I ve got two IBM and had to set the PIO-Mode from 4 to 3 and the UDMA-Mode from 2 to 1.
Or try slow down your Memory by adding more wait states or something like that.
I don't think its a CPU-problem.
