Asrock K7VM2 + XP 2400

  1. HELP!
    I have a Asrock K7VM2 board running happy with a AMD Athlon XP 1700 cpu.
    I just bought a AMD Athlon XP 2400, number AXDC2400DKV3C, and I can't get it to work. So far as I am aware this SHOULD be compatible with this board. And I can't see anywhere to change much like clock mulipliers etc so assume that I just install and it should run. I have tried clearing CMOS but that doesn't help. Board powers up, fans etc, but no operating system and no beeping at all.
    Can anyone shed light?? Have I bought a bad cpu?? Will send it back if so.

    does your old cpu work after you tried the new one??? hopefully you didnt fry your motherboard.

    I have my old Athlon XP 1700 back in and running OK! The board is OK! just won't seem to run the other cpu.

    If you didn't get the board yesterday, you might need to update the BIOS. D/l the latest manual and look it up.
