why don't you use Bios 1.05 nstead of 1.04?
My first experiences up to today are similar to yours. Had a few BSOD myself with XP SP2 after I've updated to Eurocom's BIOS 2.04a - same CPU = Clawhammer 3.2, nothing else changed.
My 4750 isn't that old, just over a year, but I'm still running the old keyboard BIOS as discussed before.
After the thírd BIOS update in a row I didn't have BSOD anymore, but Prime95 stopped after the first self test, which wasn't the case before. I went back to Medion BIOS 1.05 for now which was okay with DMA5, and is reliable according Prime95.
My biggest surprise came when I noticed that I have RAM speed now at 200 MHz with the same old 1.05 BIOS as before, which was set to 166 MHz previously, for sure. I have 1 GB with 2 x 512 MB Apacer DIMMs.
Anyway, the 1.05 Eurocom BIOS is still on their website. If anybody wants the Medion 1.05 (=015) BIOS, I can forward this - I had been taken off their website a while ago. The Medion has two more options (WLAN = last state or off at boot AND touchpad on or off at boot) plus a diff. start up screen (showing only AMD64 without further info).
I will prob. do further testing with changes to par. / ser. port settings the next days ...
Do we already have sb running 2.04a on xp sp2 sucessfully with the orig. CPU? If yes, can we have results if it is okay with Prime95 (torture test, 2nd option from top=much heat), please?
Also - CPU voltage used for max speed and RAM config + speed.
Thanks for all the support here - Steve
Edit: my CPUz info attached
A couple of days and a couple of reboots later I'm back running my mermory at 166 Mhz instead of the 200 shown above (same BIOS) - strange behaviour ...
