I just setup my Asus A7M266 with a T-bird 1.3 AXIA CPU.
All jumpers are in default mode.
The first time I went into the BIOS there was an error message about not being able to detect the bus frequency. The second time booted it up it was ok so I changed it to 133mhz bus. From then on, everytime I try to turn the comp off I'm not getting anything... fans, harddrives and cd-rom all power up. Anyone got any ideas? Please tell me the mobo or CPU is not burnt... I look at the CPU and there's no burn marks or anything that I can see.

Check your DIMM modules. If they are not fully seated, then your board will not boot properly.
Try to boot it with all but the essentials yanked out... Boot with CPU, Memor, Vidcard and a HD. See if that will boot.

I've already tried yanking out all the non-essentials. No luck. The RAMM module is fine as well, btw, it's a 256mb Corsair. No luck with RAM seating either. Any other suggestions?

I just realized that the processor is a 1.3 AXIA not a 1.33.
Here's my problem (updated). My friend got an AsusA7M266 and a 1.3 AXIA chip. The first time I booted it up i went into BIOS and it gave me an error saying something about not being able to detect bus speed. (The jumper settings were set to Jumper free mode). The 2nd time I booted up and went into BIOS i didnt get the same error. I then changed the BUS Freq to 133mhz NOT knowing that the 1.3Ghz AXIAS are 100mhz bus freq. I booted it up again and it didnt get anywhere. There's only power going through the system, I'm not getting anything on the screen or bootup. No beeping, no nothing. I tried taking out the CMOS battery no luck. I took out all non-essentials and no luck. I tried it from scratch again, and no luck. Anyone got any ideas? I mean, even though I accidentally changed the bus freq to 133, it shouldn't fry the CPU and/or motherboard just go into safe-mode again, right?
