PIII reports as PII in Device Manager!

  1. Hi everyone,

    Having great fun ( not ) in trying to install a video card ( http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic97506.html )

    In the process of checking device manager to find the chipset info. I was surprised to find my Compaq Deskpro K450 PIII denoted as Pentium II! The bios says Pentium III, and it is a Pentium III.

    Thought this rather weird ... any ideas / comments?

    Thanks,

    Anthony.
