    I have recently bought a gigabyte GA-7VRXP motherboard with an Athlon 1800 XP and 256mb of 333mhz ram. I have used both auto and manual settings for the cpu clock, upgraded to the latest bios revision and lowered all my memory settings to their lowest settings but no configuration I have tried allows me to run the system speed at 133...the system starts and then seems to restart but I get no video signal and I cannot get through the post. As soon as I lower the system speed to 100 it boots perfectly at any configuration. I have even tried lowering the cpu multiplier as low as 8 times 133 but still nothing...I have a sparkle branded nvidia geoforce 2 TI agp for the video...please help!

    Try and update to the latest BIOS ( if you haven't done it already).
    If that doesn't help , try and reset the BIOS and see.
    If that doesn't help , u mentioned that "auto and manual settings" had been set. Does that include the SW 1 switch ( on the board)?
    Also in BIOS you have the posibility to CONFIGURE S DRAM by SPD .. play with that setting (disable/enabled) and see.
    Same goes for the DRAM Frequency ( 333 MHz /Auto )
