Is There Anybody Out There? Asus P2b

using the BETA 1013 BIOS but never could install XP on it. As far as supported processor speeds, it should run anything with a fsb of 100 mhz. 133 is sketchy, even though the board will go to 133 via jump config, i Is it possible to fit the jumpers requiered into this board? Changing the BIOS is a (relatively) easy process.Additionally, there is a motherboard revision number.

The latest non-beta is 1013. Why would you want to take a step down anyway??

There were 4 - 128 meg sticks in it before. I don't think I'd run mine at 133fsb for a long time, so I would probably stick with a 100mhz fsb, and stick a maximum of p3 800mhz in there.

The motherboard supports bus settings up to that speed but are they stable. Trying to upgrade the ram on this mobo, and it won't recognize the second 512 stick of ram. if u do choose a slocket card, go for a name brand one like the ASUS one. I think that may resolve issues with larger hard drives.

Very old versions of the bios didn't support drives past a certain size (I think it was 8GB or something like that). Flash the bios to the P2B bios so you now have a clone of the origional bios chip. 5. Stay logged in Sign up now! FYI I have done the hot swap bios thing I mensioned above.

As long as your board revision is 1.12 or higher, the motherboard will support a coppermine (providing you update your BIOS to the lastest version).
