**disclaimer**, all the o/c kits are extensively tested by sunshinestar.com and they gaurantee the processors to work, I personnaly do not think this is the problem, but am trying to troubleshoot, before my 30day send back is up (and trying to avoid the S/H fee...) ( i am glad i copy pasted this )

I will e-mail anyone back more extensively, I am running out of points I appreciate all your help, and thanks ahead of time, for anyone putting time into their responses, I will try to awardanyone who seemed to hit the nail somewhat head on, I know there may not be any foolproof answer, (since i have 3 75 point questions, if you answer heavily on one, try to at least include your name on the others, ill try to give to 3 diff't people...

I doubt that there was any misloading of the OS because of the drivers...the only diff that that made is that it made it load slower.

I think that your problems lie in either the video drivers, or items running in the background.

1. first go wherever you have to go to get the latest video drivers and then uninstall/reinstall them.

2. then clear the startup menu:
-Start | Run...type MSCONFIG
-click on the "startup" tab
-uncheck everything (for troubleshooting) except "scan registry" and "system tray"

From the problems you described this seems to be the issue here...but if not, you may want to contact the macufacturer so see if you can "pre load" the MBD drivers (like the PIIX 4 drivers in win95) and try to format and reinstall windows one more time;

hope it helps,

Since it's a pretty clean Win install, it might be compatability issues with the new motherboard or a hardware problem. Double check the attachment of the heatsink to the CPU. The CPU should be able to handle that amount of overclocking, but it needs to be cooled very well. Sometimes I find the heatsink not completely flat on the CPU and does not have the proper amount of pressure on the CPU. This could cause overheating and erratic problems like you describe. I don't know if Abit has a temperature monitor program, but that's the first thing I'd check.

The Abit Board requires that the HPT (HighPoint Technologies) UDMA drivers be installed after the OS, so that isn't the problem. Running 2 IDE channels and 1 UDMA channel should be fine as well, since the UDMA is seen as a "SCSI" device once the HPTdrivers are loaded. The is a new
BIOS flash out the for the BE6-II, ver 1.0 has one dated 6/00 ( I think) and ver 1.2 and above is dated 7/00. My guess for the lock problem...CPU temp caused by the OC'ing. If you haven't installed the System Monitor software
( which shows in Celsius) Go to the BIOS SETUP and Look at System Performace ( I think that's the name) It will show you the CPU temp, fan speeds etc there as well as what "normal" is considered.

Good Luck

the drivers were the opposite way around, and my board indeed did have an update for it, however after flashing my bios, and then reformatting windows 98, and reinstalling and blah blah blah, the problems still existed... :{ the CPU temperature still never gets above 44 degrees, that is insanely low for overclocked, and yes that was CPU temp, not system :{
