ok this is my comp. :
MotherBoard : ASUS CUV4X-DLS.
CPU1 : 1ghz Pentium III.
CPU2 : 1ghz Pentium III.
HD1 : WD 40gb iBM SCSI.
GFX card : Matrox G400 Dual Head Max.
OS : Dual Boot Win2k / Win98.

i tried changing CPU's to 1 866mhz and it still doesnt work .
i reinstalled Win2k/98 a 1000 times and still wont work.
in Win98 it just Freeze's
and in Win2k it wont Recognize.

i tried putting the card on a Diffrent Board . and it worked.

i think the MotherBoard might be my problem .. so can anyone help me ? or ran into this kinda problem aswell ?.

Yes, it is possible that the motherboard is incompatible. That motherboard has a VIA chipset, and there have been a few other reports of VIA chipsets causing such problems.
However, I think it is more likely that the problems are caused by the following:
Under Windows 2000: it does not work because the drivers do not support Windows 2000.
Under Windows 98: there could be a conflict. Make sure AV Master has its own IRQ between 9 and 15. You can usually do this by moving the card to a different slot.

Compaq AP550 866 freeze (with 98 and ME and NT4) with Deskpro EN 866 freeze (same OSs) so give me only one PC or simply motherboard vendor and model(1Ghz+) that works with this board, ONLY ONE!!

The motherboards we most recommend are: Intel chipset motherboards by one of these manufacturers:
Abit, Asus, Gigabyte, Intel, Supermicro, Tyan.

Can't your AV Master dealer in Italy sell you a system that they know works with it? Or contact FAST's office in Italy - they might have a list of specific motherboards or computers that they recommend to their customers.

Thank you very much for your response!
In Italy there isn't Fast office but only dealer REKEO and I have asked them but they are testing in this days Athlon compatibility, so I am waiting.(they haven't estimation time)
Sorry for this question but you have the list of specific motherboards ?(for UK obviously) you spoke about Intel chipset but have you idea why compaq (intel) doesn't work?
I think you have not solution(too much hard for whoever) but I want only a little help.
One name of motherboard + processor more than 1 Ghz (okay pentium III or p4)(please guaranteed and tested, not recomended)
That's all!
...BUT if this is impossible, okay
please say me AVM doesn't work with processor
up 450 mhz!
Thank you very much for your help again

Sorry, no, I do not have a list of specific motherboards that are 'guaranteed and tested.' If I had such a list I would post it up here for you. Here at FAST UK we use AV Master on two motherboards: a Tyan Tiger 100 with 2x Pentium II 450Mhz processors, and a Intel CA810E with 1x Celeron 433Mhz processor. However, it sounds as if you want something more modern than that.
I really have provided you with all the info that I can. Please contact FAST Italia/Rekeo if you want to buy a compatible motherboard.
