Bad PC100 Memory
Last updated: 1/28/2001

Q.  Enjoyed your article on the EpoX MVP3G-M motherboard... I cannot get my board to run at 100MHz. When setting JP5 to 2-3 (SDRAM Clock = CPU Bus Clock), the computer will not even self-test. If I switch it to 1-2 (2/3 CPU Clock or 66MHz), it works fine. I have tried two separate 64MB PC100 SDRAM modules, but neither has corrected the problem...

A.  I think you may still have bad memory.  It should be name brand, 8 ns, PC-100 memory.
