I looked up some stuff about that mobo and apparently it can only handle a 2.2GHz without bios upgrades. Look around for those first.

mobo = motherboard ;P

Making me do all the work... I should charge you :p OK, it should be here... http://www.msi.com.tw/program/support/bios/bos/spt_bos_detail.php?UID=314&kind=1

Just double check that's your motherboard and all, see what version you have already installed(should show it on the POST screen), and be VERY VERY carreful when you upgrade. If all goes well, that SHOULD do it. The motherboard seem to be a fairly compatable one, so I would assume your bios is just out dated...
