When I enter BIOS i can not change anything. Its as if the keyboard is not working, but it is? My mobo is VIA 133.
Well the keyboard must be working if you are able to get into BIOS. Who made board?

If it's truely a via kt133 then the board probly doesn't overclock and even if it did the best you would get out of that chipset is 108-110 fsb. The ones I used to have 109 was about as high as they would go and still be stable

When you say "anything", do you mean once you get in Bios you can't change any of the settings at all or move to different pages or push escape and get exit info? If you are just talking about certain things can't be changed, either Bios want let you change or in my boards case, I can't change some of the settings unless I have on Performance Setting, or Userdefined. Also I have heard of some boards that have a jumper on the board that can be set not to allow bios changes if "on". Check you Mobo manual and see what it says can be changed.

The FSB is allready at 133mhz @10.5. I can get into the bios, but like you said thats it.

any ideas? plz as i cant even flash the bios.
You might have to get a better board. I think all my baords will have the nforce2 chipset from now on.

you could always get a real chipset. AMD762 is the best chipset out for socket A boards. you wouldn't get the higher fsb as NF2 or kt600 but cpu power is no comarison. I just wish I could afford one of those boards.

pallys dont overclock well at all, its not even worth the effort even with a new motherboard. There default VCore is already 1.75v as the T-breds are usally 1.65v. You can pick up a 2100+(t-bred) and a Abit, Asus, or Msi Nforce2 board for around $150 US bucks and get 2GHz easy on air.

Cheers for the advice, but i threw the cpu and mobo in the atic and got me a new Tbred and Nforce2 Ultra 400 mobo. Im currently sitting at a reasonable 200*11 :D
