need help with Shuttle mobo

i just added some ram on my comp, and the motherboard i have is a Shuttle, (p4 1.8ghz) and i was wondering if i can change CMOS settings in XP. when i try to hit del in the ram count area, it takes me to a blank screen with a blue line at the bottom. i have no idea why it does it, but it seems like everytime i change something this problem comes up. thnx

i don't know why you wouldn't be able to see the BIOS screen. (is delete the right button to get in the BIOS for this motherboard? some use others... but if it is reacting and blanking the screen, i'd guess delete is right).

what other "changes" have you made before this problem occurs? i searched around for people with similar problems and came up with nothing. you could try contacting the manufacturer, although that may not be the most help

A couple of questions:
1) Could you get into the BIOS setup before you added the RAM? Did you ever try it?
2) If the answer is yes, does it work again once you've removed the extra RAM you just added?
3) Have you checked to see if there's an updated BIOS that addresses this problem?

reguardless

when ever i change something, ie pulling out vid card, it has trouble booting up. kinda fishy but it works after a couple agrivating moments. ram or not, when i need to get into the bios, it will not let me. just a blank screen with a blue line at the bottom.
