Ok, I'm doing a chip for a friend. It's been a while since I did my own, so I want to make sure I'm not doing something really stupid. I soldered teh chip in, seemed to go just fine. This is a 2.2 pro btw. I hooked up my computer via parallel cable. I turned the chip off and turned switch four to on. Go into X2BM, click on verify and get 01 and D5. So I fill up all four banks, flash the chip, and have yet to get it to verify. Now, I've read that some people don't get it to verify, so I figure I'll try it anyway. I turn on the chip and I flip up switches three and four to on, which should turn on bank one (I'm installing x2_4977 FWIW). I power up the machine and it just cycles three times and then frags. Does the same for all four banks.
Anyone got any ideas for me? I can't help but think I'm doing something stupid, but this part went so easily for me on my chip and the 2.2 IS slightly different, that I'm wondering if I"m missing something.
