got me one of those K62/300/3DNOW...
when I boosted up the motherboard mhz to 100 I've ran into several problems (most are solved) but I have a weird 1, that's still hanging around. When I have the computer search for new hardware it locks up. I've reloaded windows & I have the latest flash BIOS. (also checked pc100 ram/removed sound & modem cards/jumpers are aok)
Have a nice day!

win 98...

another thing I've found is a DOS problem, any game that needs DOS to load or run freezes the system in the same manner.

tried re-formatting (no good)

You think "bad" MotherBoard?

look at detlog.txt & see what last entry is. may give a clue as to component that is causing hangup.

may be bad MB or possibly a bad cmos setting with bus speed /cpu clock ratios

It could also be the ram. Check out the AMD website for dos game patches too. are you o/c that could also be a problem.
