Static resource conflict

By brooke ·
I recently installed an AMD K6/2 500 CPU in a Micro-star MS5169 motherboard, along with 128m PC100 DIMM. During the POST, there is this message "Static Resource Conflict". The memory is reported correctly, as is the CPU. The system is freezing intermittently. Any help would be appreciated.

Check and make sure the CPU is seated in the block correctly with pin 1 match up.Update the bios and then you will want to make sure that the memory is set in the slots correctly.upon start up press F8 and check the CMOS utility that the correct memory is being recognized.

Wait, don't open that case! I think you have a corrupt NVRAM. I'm guessing from the error message that you may have an AMI bios. If so, do the following:

1. Shut down the computer
2. Hold Down the INS key
3. Turn On the Computer
4. You should on the screen NVRAM cleared, and it should not appear again.

If you have another type of BIOS then search your m-board manual and see how to clear the NVRAM.

Hope this works!
Good Luck

Update the bios at Microstar international. I had the same problem on a MS5169. Also, make sure that the PCI configuration on the MB is set correctly for PNP devices. You may have a static device on the MB conflicting with a ISA legacy card i.e. Modem.

I would go into the BIOS and check out the CPU mulitplier and FSB settings(if available). Maybe you have a combo that produces the right CPU mhz, but these settings are not the correct settings recommended by AMD. I've seen this happen more than once. The system would actually boot, but freeze up like a statue whenever it felt like it.
