I have just acquired a pair of Slot B modules marked 833Mhz. / 4MB cache.
These were purchased as an upgrade for my API Networks UP2000+ motherboard.
The motherboard is known operational (at least with my current 667Mhz. 2M
cache modules) and has firmware A5.8-81 installed.
The new modules do not appear operational and the seller will accept a return.
However, before I do so can anyone suggest any steps to better diagnose the
situation? With the original CPUs, I can see the SROM leds flicker for a
fraction of a second, then go out just prior to the BIOS signon screen. With
the new CPUs, the leds flicker and stay illuminated. The system never
proceeds past that point.
Any advice appreciated!
