Default Motherboard question.

A friend of mine was talking about his motherboard and asked if I had ever made any adjustments to the jumpers on the board. Is that possible? Are there jumpers on the board to make it run faster or his board older and newer ones don't have them?

Most older boards have a good number of jumpers. They are used to change the fsb and toggle settings and features on mother boards. New mother boards dont have as many, most of the toggle features are in the bios.

I would say that if your pc is slower than 1ghz than you have jumpers. The jumpers look just like the ones that you put on the back of your hard drives or oprical drives to tell it master or slave.
