I'm trying to build a modest system for my retired father to use.
Intel Celeron 340 2.93Ghz 533FSB Socket 478
DDR400 ram 512mb (Ultra brand) 1 chip. Dual Channel set up is not needed.
Intel D865PERL motherboard.
I've stipped it down to bare CPU + RAM but I can not get this thing to POST. The lights all come on, fans spin, SATA drive spins up, but no POST. No display as a result.
I don't even get error beeps.
I read here
that in order to use DDR 400 I need an 800mhz processor bus speed.
Does DDR400 not drop down to DDR333 speed?
