Athlon XP not recognized

Usually Windows XP display sth. like this:

1.4 Ghz
Athlon XP 1600+
512MB RAM

But since i've played with Tweak-XP it only reports:

512MB RAM

The CPU Info is missing. Also in the Devices Window in the Control Panel it shows "AMD Athlon(tm) Processor", it used to be "AMD Athlon XP".

How do i fix that? Unfortunately i have no registry backup. I already reinstalled the K7 processor update.

Welcome to the forums thop. :)

You could try changing the settings on tweakxp back, uninstalling it & then do a system restore. Might work.

thanks hipster :)

i'm not sure what you mean by system restore, but i don't have any backups or restore points :(

I tried to disable the setting in tweak-xp (i believe the cpu "optimisation" caused this) but it didn't help. I even looked with RegMon what Tweak-XP is doing, but it only changed the SecondLevelCache, so i reverted the change but didn't help.

I have used the CPU tweak in Tweak XP 1.27 and it does not have any visibilty effect on the Processor (2200+) in systems menus etc.
Dont choose "Athlon Processor " in this menu.
None of the settings in Tweak XP seem to have adverse effects as a rule.
Maybe you also changed something else??

Go to the start menu & get to system tools. In there you'll see system restore. See if it has any restore points. It should have unless it has been turned off.

If you have made a lot of changes to xp then be careful about which one you pick. You will lose changes made after the restore point.

It may be a bit of a hassle if you want to post to futuremark's
site as it will not let you post unless it recognises your processor among other things.
