THen you'll need a bios update. The processor is running at the speed of a xp2500+, but isn't recognized as one.

Your BIOS is just outta date. The 1833 MHz clockspeed is correct for the XP 2500+. The 333 MHz FSB is correct for the processor as is the "11" multiplier. All is fine except your BIOS is outta date and should read properly with a current BIOS.
