archimago Posted February 21, 2005 Share Posted February 21, 2005 I updated my BIOS using the latest update from ECS and WinFlash. It appeared to work ok, but I can't boot my system with the BIOS protect jumper set to "enabled". Thought that was weird. Do I need to clear CMOS in order to load the new BIOS settings? Only thing I can think of. Anyway I want to input the settings that RAM guy recommended, but my BIOS doesn't look like what he described. I have Pheonix AWARDBIOS. Please tell me what values I should put in these fields for my two identical sticks of 512MB RAM: Freq./Voltage Control: Auto detect PCI Clk: [Enabled] Spread Spectrum: [+/- 0.50%] CPU Clock: [200 Mhz] CPU Voltage Regulator: [Default] DDR Voltage Regulator: [Default] Advanced Chipset/(DRAM Clock/Drive Control): Current CPU Freq: [200Mhz] Current DRAM Freq: [200Mhz] DRAM Clock: [by SPD] DRAM Timing: [Auto by SPD] SDRAM CAS Latency: [2.5] Bank Interleave: [4 Bank] Precharge to Active(Trp): [4T] DRAM Command Rate: [2T Command] My processor has an 800Mhz FSB, so I think I should be able to set my CPU clock higher, but it only lets me set it up to 231.
