New motherboard
Sup, I'm new to the forums
My mobo fried the other day and I bought a new one. My processor is an AMD Athlon XP 2400 (266 FSB) and this new mobo supports up to 400 FSB but its running at 100 FSB and it says it's now an AMD Athlon 1800 running at 1.5 ghz instead of the 2.0 ghz it should be running at.

Any suggestions?

you need to up the fsb in the bios to 133

Tried it, it keeps jumping back to 100

I checked the manual to see if it was a misplaced jumper but it says the default is 133/166 FSB.

Any other suggestions?

No suggestions?

are there any other settings that keep resetting? there is a remote chance that the setting just won't stay because of a dead CMOS battery

If that was the case would I be able to access all the BIOS options? Cause I still can. Just the FSB wont change.

all right, got the FSB issue done with but it's still recognizing my processor as an AMD Athlon 1800 (1.5ghz) instead of 2400 (2.0ghz)

you can change the fsb to 133 from the bios menu, and your mobo model ?
