It's generally considered bad form to dredge up a 3 year old thread to post your question in hence I've split it out and created your own thread for you.

Now,just because your Gig GA-7VA-XP doesn't recognise the cpu doesn't mean it won't run it.Very few boards actually recognise an XP-M officially as the string is not written into the bios.

You should have multiplier control via dip switches on the motherboard itself and not through the bios.Your board is limited to 333fsb though I think and has a Via chipset so no pci/agp lock.It's not an overclocking board to be honest.To get the best out of the xp-m2800 look at a nforce2 board.

Gigabyte mobos don't usually detect mobile CPUs and will default to the lowest possible clock speed and multiplier. So you should be able to get the system up and running but not very fast. If there is no way to set your own clock and multiplier using jumpers or the bios (quite possible on gigabyte) then you can try a free utility CrystalCPUID which allows software change of the multiplier. Some Gigabyte boards are happy with this and some just crash. What you really need is another mobo that is not Gigabyte.

CrystalCPUID from here...
