Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Your AMD64 3000 cpu should run at 2000mhz and not at 2400mhz.

Where did you see the max speed given as 2400mhz?

By raising your fsb you are overclocking, and this is why you are having stability issues.

Reset your fsb to 200mhz. this should solve your problem.

If you really want to oc your cpu, then take a look HERE first.

thanks, for the answer, i see 2400mhz on the asus probe :"2000mhz actual clock speed" and below "2400mhz max clock speed

It means the maximum speed that either the Socket or the core is supposed to reach, it doesn't mean the maximum speed your CPU can reach.
