I just bought a new mb. the abit kn8 sli with a geforce 6600le-512.

in the manual.

Now i've got the problem with the interstep in the softmenu. When i set

but when i set the fsb 278 mhz the screen stays black and i have to
reset the cmos...
do i make a fault or is something damaged?

(sorry for my bad english)
