Need help with BIOS please
I just bought two sticks of 1 gig Corsair XMS PC-3200. I'm using a AMD
XP 2500+ Barton and started it up Sunday night, after setting the memory
frequency to 200 MHZ. It was working fine until yesterday morning, when I
booted it back up. I set the mem freq. to 166 and saved the settings.
Since I was in a rush to leave for work, I turned off the power just prior
to loading the BIOS screen. Ever since then, my computer has been
"non-responsive." Everything will still light up and has power, but when
the computer is turned on, it doesn't beep (like it does prior to displaying
the BIOS screen). Also, if the DVD-Rom and CD-RW is plugged into power, the
light on the DVD-Rom will flicker continuously, while the CD-RW light will
remain on. I'm also using Award Bios v.1.06. I read through the manual and
didn't find any help. The video card is fine and the mobo or case doesn't
smell like anything fried.

Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks.
