I noticed after booting my computer today that my CPU is now registering as a "1600+ Unkown CPU" and i'm now only getting 1.40Ghz. The CPU is a Athlon XP 2000+ , it's always been fine but for some reason its changed, I haven't made any system changes what so ever so i'm not sure what the problem is.

Happened to me as well, sort of.

My CMOS battery died and when I powered down it lost the settings in the bios so I had to change the FSB freq and the mulitplier each time I booted until I changed the battery.

Have a look just to check your settings

what does is your fsb in the bios...

it should report as 133... if it isn't than there lies your answer..

there should be some software that allows you to see the fsb...

actually just go to control panel > system and report what speed it is showing over there :)

What motherboard do you have? As mentioned, I'd say your CMOS battery is dying, thats the only explanation if you haven't changed any settings.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
