Default K7S5A processor issues

My motherboard cannot properly identify the processor it has (AMD Athlon XP 2400) when running in 100/100. When I try to set it to the proper frequency (133/133) the system will either freeze or restart a few seconds after I boot into XP or Ubuntu. It's not a problem with overclocking, since it takes my 2500+ (although it sees it as 1.1GHz normally, 1.4GHz at 133/133) and runs stable. I have the latest version of the BIOS for the K7S5A (v 3.1), and the power supply I'm using worked fine with this processor before (A7V266-E).

If there is no way to get it to run at the intended 2.0GHz instead of the 1.5GHz the system runs it at now, can I at least reclaim some of the speed with a custom overclocking BIOS? If so, which one?

Yes, it runs stable at 100/133, so memory isn't the problem.
