Problem with XP 1800+

  1. Here's the problem. When I first installed my motherboard, I switched it to 133mhz or 266fsb and it posted as it noramlly should as a XP 1800+. I even overclocked it to about 1600mhz. After 3 days of working normal, one night I cut the computer off and when I got up in the morning to cut it on, it showed the screen where it detects the drives, then the monitor loses its signal. So I switched it back to 100mhz or 200fsb and it posted as normal but the speed was at 1150mhz. Now I am stuck at this speed and can't change it. When I had my ECS KS57A mothboard and the same setup, it did exaclty the same thing. So could anyone tell me what could be the problem. Thanks for your help.

    if you put it back to the 266 bus speed it should read correctly again.
