That could be almost anything. What have
you got installed in your auto folder?

Don't pay any attention to the ACC when you
are not using NEMESIS.PRG and one of the
NEM_??.PRG switches. The ACC just tells
you which switch was last executed. It does
not report the actual speed of the hardware
itself. It only looks in a cookie and reports
the contents.

Also, don't use NEMESIS.PRG or the software
switches when you use the TK 40MHz boot
option. Use the auto programs OR the TK button
but not both at once.

I can't help you there. Never seen that happen.

Are you sure the machine isn't booting at 8MHz
or 10MHz somehow? Make sure SI.CPX is not
installed because it can cause problems like
that and crashes the machine when the desktop
loads. AB does not like half-clocking the CPU
as much as a normal Falcon does.

As I said, I can't explain that. I use TK 5.07 without
any problems at all.
