Default Motherboard & RAM query

A friend has an ATI A3-M1535D motherboard and a stick of PC2100 DDR RAM fitted but CPU-Z reports it running at 133MHz. I thought PC2100 was supposed to run at 266MHz.

Is there an option in the BIOS that needs to be changed to allow it to run at full speed?

133*2=266. It is read as 133 due to the ram being double data rate. It is at the correct speed.

Yes, my old PC2100 ram also runs at 133, actually I think it runs at 137 but thats close enough.
