Default motherboard query

Having problems with motherboard and athlon xp 2700+

Bios reports unknown cpu at 2700+

Does that mean that the cpu and mb are incompatible

By the sounds of it you need a BIOS update in order to support the CPU correctly. You should be able to find one on the manufacturer's website, along with instructions on how to flash it if you're not sure how.
