Need help, Bios settings.
 
Can anyone suggest the BIOs settings for the following. To get the most out of my system.
ABIT NF7 MB
AMD 2500 XP~1.8g
512 ram DDR
Apollo FX5600 XT 256 MB
Samsung 80 g HD
GNC V92 modem
NV 2 onboard song for now.
LG DVD Combo drive.
My kids were able to play most of their games on excellent settings. On our old AMD 700 Athlon, 512 SDram, and TNT2 M64 VC. Now we cannot get passed the med or default settings, without them crashing to DT or a blue sceen error. I'm running XP with SP1 and updates. NO SP2, read too many bad things about installing it.
Thanks

Not sure what bad things you have heard about installing winXP sp2 2180, but I have installed it using both a internet installed Microsoft 75Mb Autoupdate file, and via a seperate downloaded 270Mb WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.EXE file. And, both installed with complete success.

My only issue has been the need to turn off the built-in firewall, since I use zonealarm for that purpose.
