I've got an athlon xp 2000+, which should run at 1.67 ghz, right? It's right now only running at 1.25 ghz, which is affecting the performance quite a bit. It may have to do with the CPU/PCI frequency, which I have set at 100/33. I put new memory in recently and it was hanging for a while and giving me an error involving that. I'm not sure what that should be set at in order to get it to 1.67 again, but I can't figure it out, and since I just finally got the [content edited] thing working again, I don't want to do anything without checking it first.

So, if you know anything about what the problem could be, or if the CPU/PCI frequency could be causing the problems, I'd really appreciate any help.

The solution is simple. Raise the cpu frequency to 133. That is the default fsb of the xp2000, and will give you the 1.67ghz.

What motherboard and memory are you using?
Your 'CPU/PCI frequency' should be set to '133/33'. Make sure your memory('DRAM clock' is set to its proper default speed(133MHz for PC2100 DDR-SDRAM or PC133 SDRAM) - memory timings should be set to 'by SPD'.

If the memory is giving problems test it:
