    Hi all the more I go through these forums the more I realize I need help, I am not sure that I have the bios set to work correctly along with getting the best results.
    I have a Abit Kt7A raid (not setup) AMD Ath 1.5 Processor, 256 MB Ram gForce 3 200Ti 128 MB Vid, 100Mbs, Hdd, Win 2K pro SB Live.
    now the current prob after seeing another member had a prob w/a cooling issue I went to my sys & sure enough my cpu is currently running 33 c & 91 f I shut down & rebooted & went to the bios & attempted to cgange some of the settings then I enabled the shutdown for the CPU warning & rebooted the system goes into a loop in other words it will not completly load just restarts so I disabled the cpu shut off and here I am.
    also I do not overclock not that I am against it I just haven't tried it yet I am researching though.
    Thanks in advance Sketchman:confused: as always

    I'm not sure what the problem is, but 31C is a very good temperature to be running at, that's not hot at all! As far as the options go, one option that will drive Window 2000 or XP crazy is changing the ACPI enabled option. If you changed that, put it back, that may solve your problem.

    Maybe I am not explaining this correctly or maybe I am just paranoid in either case I am trying to figure out what BIOS settings work best with my system & how to drop the "Ferinheit" below 91 degrees I am sure that albeit that 33 C is cool enough I am concerned that the 91 is subjecting my system for future failure & then again it may just be my paranoia :D
    Thankz Sketchman:)

    I have noticed that my thread has either stumped or again a non issue I have researched this issue and this is what I have found at this web site http://burks.bton.ac.uk/burks/pcinfo/hardware/bios_sg/bios_sg.htm

    It does give an extensive what to & not able/disable
    I will try to rely a little more on my research and hopefully I won't have the need for obvious problems in the future.
    I am not trying to be nasty in my response I am just trying not to allow my computer to have a melt down (as it were) :D

    Thankz for having a site where I can have the means to begin my search and direction
    Sketchman :)

    Your temp is good......I have machines running between 44C and 52 C........

    If you think you want it cooler, and another fan inside the case....but I think you are being paranoid........ ;)
