I've installed the Biostar N7NCD motherboard with the ATHLON XP M 3000+ CPU and can not get thru the windows install.

The CMOS sets up fine but XP freezes at various points. The furthist I've gotten is the 33 min
point.

I've checked by replacement with known working components.

HDD 80 MB
Cables IDE
Video card BFG GeForce 6800 GS 256MB APG
Memory 1GB
Windoiws XP Software

Nothing helps. According to my research the XP M CPU is marketed for Laptop use but should work in a desktop. It is just a carefully selected XP that will run on a lower voltage.

Any ideas?

PS: The reason I working with my wife's machine handed down from me and was trying to not buy a new video card.

Set FSB at 133 and memory at auto and got windows to install.

Unfortunately the cpu is reported as an "Athlon XP mobile 800MHZ". Obviously this is incorrect for a 2.2 GHZ processor.

Can anyone please help by suggesting some FSB and Memory settings that would more correct.
