    Try updating the drives you may have the incorrect drive which could cause the system to make a mistake

    It would seem at one point the FSB has been reset to 100MHz. The correct speed for the 2400+ is 133x15 ~= 2000MHz, right now it is 100x15 ~= 1500MHz. Have a look in your system's BIOS, try to locate the FSB setting.

    When you update the BIOS, the first step after rebooting is to go in the BIOS setup & load the system defaults.
