I just bought a ca64-tc socket 370 dfi motherboard with an 800 mHz intel cpu, I finally got it up and running after I figured out that I needed a new power supply. The system finally boots up into the x server of linspire, however when I go to the bios I can't read anything there, I set the jp1 and jp2 according to what the manual specifies for pc133 ram. I cleared the CMOS a couple of times, and it seemed to have improved things. I am also having problems multitasking meaning that I can only operate one program at a time before the system freezes up and I have to reboot again to only have the same problem. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
After rebooting many times: Here's an update. All of the sudden I can use multiple applications. I only have trouble bringing up the open office sweet at the same time as other applications like my e-mail client or the web browser. I am thinking that it is the ATI Radeon 7000 card. When I do dmesg I get the error message that it couldn't find a driver for my radeon card. Also I think that's why I can't even read the jumbled text in the bios. Wierd problems, but it looks like I solved my own.
