I was trying initially to overclock the dx2 66 in the system to 100mhz and none of the jumpers seemed to increase the speed of the processor. Changing the multiplier didn't have any effect but I could clock it down to 50mhz. I then ordered a dx4 100 and although it "works" nothing detects it as the correct cpu. When the system does its initial tests it shows up as a dx2 66. Cpu id in dosbench lists it as a 100mhz processor with no cpu id. I can change the speed of it via jumpers to be 50, 66, 75, 100 mhz but that's it. Changing jumper jp16 (dx2 or dx4) does seemingly nothing. And with the dx4 100 installed when you get into windows 95 you immediately get an error about not being able to launch explorer.exe and windows needs to be reinstalled.
Should I upgrade the bios from gp.05.05 to gp.05.07? I'm afraid of anything failing and bricking the box.
The dx2 66 is write back and the dx4 100 is write through. Would that be a problem?
Finding information on this pc is really tough 🙁
