I'm building a machine for a friend it says on the cpu its a 2200 it runs as a 1500. In a freinds machine it runs as a 2200. Ive tried a diffrent power supply reinstaled windows XP. Im stuck for ideas besides the Mobo could be faulty what else could it be? I'm new to this but learning fast.
The board is a MSI KT4 Ultra, Memory 256 PC2700. Any other info needed will be added when asked for.

HELP ME :(
Thanx in advance

Have you changed the bus speed in the BIOS? I used to have 100 100.. and my processor was a 1000 Ghz instead of a 1400 Ghz. So i changed it to 133 133 and now it runs as a 1400 Ghz. Im not sure if i have named it properly but i know in the BIOS there is something about bus with 2 numbers. Try changing the numbers to other ones like mine for example.. Worth a try

Another thing i can thing of is, is the chip a common misplacement error? Like you had a package which says 2200 when really whats inside the package is just a 1500 chip?

I hope this helps you alittle

Ok.. i just checked up on my first idea (above ^).. and i found out that i changed the "CPU Speed" from 100 100 to 133 133.. and that gave me my offical CPU Speed

Hope this helps more :D

good :)


a lot of mobos support older processors as well which had a 100mhz core clock... so for safety reasons they use 100 mhz clock so as not to blow them up by using 133 :)

just so you didn't think you had a faulty mobo :)

I had the same problem with my athlon xp 2100+ kept reporting as something like a 1700+ then I realised I had the bus speed set at 100 instead of 133. silly little dip switch.

I had that same problem when I first put together my new rig... for some reason, the fsb on my Epox 8RDA+ was set at 166MHz, pushing my AMD XP 2100+ to a 2700+! :eek:
