Maybe i have to check the ram modules, or cache module. The PC is not starting at this moment, the screen is black 🙁

Should this CPU work with this mobo? It was installed on this mobo when I got it
The CPU does not start up at this moment. Maybe I should check the jumper settings

Yes it is the 233mhz mmx. It is not for that board. The soyo is for the older pentiums without mmx (and other cpu's) that need a voltage of 3,4v according to the manual.

The mmx is a 2.8v cpu. It can work but only with a really good cooler. It is saver to use it on a newer socket7 board.

If the board doesn't start, try it without that coast module and expansion card. Use only 2 ram sticks and try a normal pci vga card. It could also be that the 233mmx is fried and you simply need another processor.

If the combination does work and you do want to keep the mmx in there, set it at 1.5x multi as the mmx sees that as 3.5x and that will give you 233mhz. And cool it.

As far as I remember testing on several Soyo boards that do not support mmx cpus, if you tried using one it would run at 166MHz. No matter if it's a 166,200 or 233MHz model.

Ok Thanks guys. Then I try to find a good CPU first for this mobo, and a good mobo for this CPU.
I dont want to burn it, or run it at lower speeds then possible

Apparently this mobo does support MMX procesors, since it has a linear regulator on massive heatsink. Just get the right manual that mentions Pentium MMX and set jumpers according to it.

Problem solved. 😊

The problem was, both FP and EDO RAM modules were installed. 🤣 The 233MMX is detected on this Mobo as 233MHz correctly

Next problem --> BIOS battery dead 😵

Good to see that you fixed your problem! There are lots of guides on here and around the internet to modify the RTC module (that big black ODIN rectangle)
