    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You need to change the fsb(front side bus) speed to 133mhz. It`s probably set at the default of 100mhz.

    You can do this from bios.

    I`m not sure I understand you correctly.

    What do you mean by "it`s not got an admin pass on my bios"?

    Regards Howard :confused:

    Ah I see now. Take the cmos battery out for a few minutes, being careful to hold it only by the edges. Not top and bottom, as this can discharge the battery. Then reinsert the battery.

    Make sure you unplug the system from the mains before you do this.

    That should reset the bios passwords to none.

    Regards Howard :grinthumb

    What happened when you set the fsb to 133mhz? You did remember to save and exit bios didn`t you?

    Regards Howard :cool:
