Posted by humpty on July 17 2006,17:26I wonder if anyone has had this happening?
Been using an all-in-one Via C3 board with built-in everything. The cheapest I could find. It says 2000+ but actually runs at 7?? Mhz.
Everytime the CPU is busy, I get video noise. I can tell cos'
the fonts start flickering.
Is it just a crap board?
