I have just bought a Mercury KM266PM mainboard bundled with an Athlon XP 2200+. Problem is the cpu only runs at 797MHz (should be 1800); it registers as this in the BIOS, in sisoft sandra, and benchmarks considerably lower than my Duron 1200 in another pc. I cannot find any jumpers or bios settings for the multipliers.
I have found that this is a mobile version, AXMH2200FQQ3; is this compatible with the board, am I missing something, is it faulty? ? ?
Advice welcomed

The XP-M 2200+ runs @ 1.667Ghz (12.5*133), but because the multiplier is unlocked for the lower multipliers, it will start at a low default setting. Same with the FSB. In the bios, set the FSB to 133Mhz (266DDR) and the multiplier to 12.5, and you will be good to go.

Use CBID, Crystal CPUID or CPU MSR to change the multiplier on the fly in Windows.
