Default my processor

i recently ordered an amd athlon 2400+ from newegg.com and had my friend install it since im not that good with computers...well when i open up aida32 (program that lets u view system specs) it sais my processor is running at 1500 mhz and it also sais it is a 1700+.this is weird since a 2400+ runs at 2 mhz...............i am very confused why it sais i have a 1700+ and i am wondering if anyone here can help me. could it be a problem with my motherboard not letting it run that fast since i just use the stock compaq motherboard? the box for the processor sais 2400+ on it so i know that it has to be the right processor.... PLEASE help Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you need to go into your bios and change the fsb from 133 to 166.
