You will also need to max out memory to 1GB, but it is ancient technollogy, and not ideal for Windows 7.

I can't imagine win 7 with only 256mb of ram.

We can not fight new wars with old weapons, let he who desires peace prepare for war - PROPHET.

Check x86 link and u will also need atleast 512mb of ram to run xp smooth.

I have that exact same board in my Linux system. It accepts up to 3GB RAM (1GB per slot) & overclocks extremely well. It only supports single channel memory so there's no need to worry about matched pairs.

There is no Athlon XP that runs at 1.3GHz except for maybe the 1500+ which runs at 1.33GHz (10 x 133MHz). My guess is you have a different CPU & have the clock settings wrong. You may a 2100+, 2700+ or 3000+. All 3 of those CPUs use a 13x multiplier but each uses a different frequency (133MHz or 166MHz). You probably have the CPU frequency set at 100MHz. If my guess is correct, there's a jumper on the motherboard that will have to be changed. It's also very important to maintain a FSB:DRAM ratio of 1:1.

The 1st thing you need to do is determine which CPU you have. Try using this:

BTW, I tried running Win7 32-bit with my A7N8X-X system (AXP-M 2400+ overclocked to 3200+) with 1.5GB DDR400 at 1:1 & it ran reasonably well.

I have that exact board & know what it's capable of. What I don't know is what YOU have. If you want help, please download & run CPUZ, then post the following:

CPU tab
processor code name
core speed
multiplier
bus speed
cache - level 2

Memory tab
DRAM frequency
FSB:DRAM

SPD tab
max bandwidth

You need to set jumpers or a bios setting so that the cpu is using a 166mhz Bus speed, which your ram supports, which may be shown as a 333mhz cpu core speed in the bios, and the proper multiplier is 13, not 13.5.

See your mboard manual.

The CPU may not work at 166mhz if that's set to 13.5.
