Cheap Stable Board for P4 2.8 533FSB at least 3 PCI

Post by ukarki »

Hey everyone,
I got a p4s533-x board from partspc.com and it did not work because I always got the IRQ NOT LESS OR EQUAL blue screen on Windows 2000, even on installation. I took out all my PCI card and also replaced the memor but still did not work. I disabled the network card and the sound card onboard but no luck. I am returning it back to them. Does anyone has a suggestion for a better motherboard that is stable and cheap?

Thanks in advance.

By the way I put my old Asus CUV4X-E back and it works fine, no crash nothing. Super stable. I think the MB was bad or something. or can it be the processor?

When you changed the memory did you swap it for the same thing??

It's probably best to change memory manufacturer completely to Cosair or Crucial

I changed the memory. I had pc 133 from crucial one is 512MB and another one is 256. So i took one of them and tried and it did not work. and I place d the other one and took the on that was there. Still did not work. I got a memory from a friend of mine and it did not work either. I tried different slots on the MB still did not work.

I'm using an msi 655max with sis 655 chipset. It's available at 3 pricewatch venders for $47 shipped. It's a great board, but won't run the new "c" series p4's.
