On my girl's computer we are using Windows 2000 when trying to start the computer it hangs up and shows the error External Cache Type: Pipeline Burst. I cannot use Safe Mode nor can I use the restore boot disc. How do I get beyond this message? Please email me with suggestions. Thanks

I found this :
pipeline burst cache
This type of secondary cache is an advanced type of SRAM installed on the motherboard to boost computer performance. Pipeline burst SRAM is commonplace now in motherboard market, where it replaced the older Sync Burst cache, which works less efficiently with fast processors.

See also: SRAM, cache, level 2 cache


pipeline break
(Or "pipeline stall") The delay caused on a processor using pipelines when a transfer of control is taken. Normally when a control-transfer instruction (a branch, conditional branch, call or trap) is taken, any following instructions which have been loaded into the processor's pipeline must be discarded or "flushed" and new instructions loaded from the branch destination. This introduces a delay before the processor can resume execution.

I have a feeling your memory went south, could be wrong.
Really does sound like a memory problem.
I'm just not sure if it's system memory or processor memory.
Thinking it's system. Pipeline needed to be installed in pairs I believe but could be wrong.
Try reseating your memory chips on the motherboard, if there are four, try different combo's of two in banks 0 and 1.
