Won't accept large HD or CPU

Specs: Windows XP

I'm trying to install an AMD Athlon 3000XP CPU into the above board, but can't get it to accept anything above a Sempron 2400. I'd also like it to take a 250GB Hard Drive, but the biggest one I can get it to take is 8GB! I've flashed the BIOS to V4DP05 (a first for me), but it hasn't made the difference I hoped it would make. I'd be really grateful if anyone has any more ideas please.

Thank you,

Are you sure the AXP 3000+ is a working CPU? Is it the 333MHz FSB (166MHz) version or the 400MHz FSB (200MHz) version? It appears that your board only accepts up to 333MHz FSB CPUs. Here's the manual, make sure to configure the FSB jumpers correctly:


And I doubt your board will accept HDDs larger than 120GB without installing a PCI controller card. How are you going about partitioning & formating your drive?
