Help With A GA-7VAXP Board

I dont think you will have any probs with returning your board if its still under warranty Reply With Quote 08-28-04,04:36 AM #7 woozy83 View Profile View Forum Posts Registered Join I am running F7, newest from gigabyte, but the controller is very old. When turning 32 bit on, it goes wanky (but at least it runs). I tried changing firewire cords, but no luck. this contact form

Make sure though, you use the RAID drivers (the latest being v1.0.0.51) instead of the non-RAID ones when running your controller in RAID mode. 7VAXPU4250.zip 193.1K 0 GR8_ONE Jan 2005 edited Jay Jun 01, 2003, 06:51am EDT Reply - Quote - Report Abuse Private Message - Add to Buddy List >>[No Subject]Eye Scum - I had the same problem with my see here

I have a chieftek case with four fans and a nice SLK 700 copper heatsink with a tornado delta 80mm on it. Also for 133 MHz I get 136MHz with no questions asked . I understand that Gigabyte is playing with us, they removed one switch from SW1 in 1.2 rev - this is supportable, because you just solder it back. Manufactured in a blue PCB, it's hard not to admire the beauty of the board with its golden heatsink and colour-coded connectors.

Gigabyte boards are almost always laden with some of the best features and it's no surprise that their next flagship DDR400 board for the Socket-A platform would come with the same Now i'm able to run WinXP Together with the nvidia 40.71 drivers (but only in 16 bit. usch as Abit, Asus, or MSI.

Help me help him A mate of mine tried to set up a pelter system with his water cooling.

One other additional note, the boot hang only occurs on the first boot up, I can reset 25 times and it is fine, aside from the paging errors. I have GA-7VAXP 27 GB. What I have done is this: I've removed the PATA RAID controller BIOS (you have 4 standard IDE ports on that mobo) to free up some space in your mobo BIOS

In addition, gamers with the latest RADEON 9700 PRO and GeForce4 Ti 4200-8x would be able to take advantage of the larger AGP 8x bandwidth.

Thanx for ya help Reply With Quote 09-09-03,11:25 PM #5 EpochofEntropy View Profile View Forum Posts Visit Homepage Registered Join Date Feb 2003 Location NY You're probably right here, the Win98 is severely effected by viruses, i'd reccommend getting Windows XP Pro. This site hosts no abandonware. Most likely I'd unplug *everything* and try to boot and see how long the RAM light stays on.
