GA-7VAXP + new cpu problems

  1. I have just changed my cpu from xp 2200 to xp 2600 and my system is only registering it as an xp 2000, I know I have to change the bios. The clock speed at present is 133, I think this is correct and or it might be 166. I know I have to change the ratio to 16x but I can't find how to change this setting anywhere in the bios. Any help would be much appriciated.

    Cheers rangersmith.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    The correct fsb for your cpu is 166mhz(333mhz effective).

    As for the multiplier your mobo should detect the correct multiplier.

    Take a look at this link it will explain how to set the correct fsb etc.

    Regards Howard
