Man, yesterday i turn on my pc, and for my surprise i got a award bootblock error msg: BIOS ROM checksum error.
Ok , fine, i got a floopy drive and upgraded the bios.

But the pc wasnt accting normal.
It just didnt reboot, only turn off.
Ive tried other processor, 2000+ and worked fine.
But ive tried my Processor on other MOBO and didnt work.
Now, sometimes it doesnt turn on, and when it works it suddently turns off!
What could be the problem, the MOBO or the processor?

Yeah, probably the processor or motherboard. You might want to try upgrading your bios. Maybe it's a known issue that you have been lucky enough not to run into at this point? Hey, it could happen.

Sounds like your CPU to me, still it's possible that your motherboard is screwed.
Some of you know what happened to my computer, FYI I still use that motherboard. It's kind of unstable... but it works somehow ^^

Unlucky me.
The stores here just ran out of 2600+.
They only got 2700+ BOX, which is way too expensive for me now, and i already have the AMD Cooler.
And i was saving for a FX 5700, now it will jsut have to wait some more....
