I just recently upgraded my motherboard, while keeping all my other hardware, harddrive, dvd-cd rom, ram, and my AMD Athlon XP 2400+ CPU. At least this was the speed of the CPU in my old motherboard. Now since i put it in my new one the speed is only at 1800+. I tried changing settings in the bios but nothing is there to tweak or change. What is the problem here? If it helps it's a Compaq Presario Desktop. I changed their motherboard for a newer and better one for gaming. Please help, this is driving me nuts

Are there any jumpers on the mobo that need to be adjusted?

Incorrect Identification of AMD Athlon™ XP Processor

An AMD Athlon™ XP processor that is being recognized as a lower model by the system's BIOS is likely running at a slower frequency than it should be running at, due to the front side bus (FSB) setting of the motherboard. The FSB of an AMD Athlon XP processor typically runs at an effective frequency of 266, 333, or 400MHz. The corresponding motherboard FSB physical frequency should be set to 133, 166, or 200MHz, respectively.

Motherboards that support multiple FSB frequencies will typically have the FSB set at the lowest frequency by default (typically 100MHz) to protect lower FSB processors from accidentally being overclocked. Consequently, if a processor that requires a higher FSB frequency is installed on a motherboard that is set to a lower FSB frequency, the processor will be operating at a lower frequency than it is capable of, causing it to be recognized as a lower model processor. This is a result of the processor's multiplier. The function of the multiplier is to multiply the bus frequency to derive the processor’s operating frequency.

For example, an AMD Athlon XP 3000+ processor (333MHz FSB) has an internal 13x clock multiplier and requires a 166MHz motherboard bus frequency. This results in a processor frequency of 2167MHz (“bus frequency” x “multiplier” = “processor frequency”). However, if the motherboard's bus frequency is set to 100MHz, the processor will only operate at 1300MHz (100MHz bus frequency x 13 multiplier = 1300MHz CPU speed). For a list of processors and their respective clock multiplier/bus speed settings, see the table below.

The FSB is usually configured by a setting in the BIOS or a hardware jumper on the motherboard. Please consult your motherboard manufacturer to determine how to correctly set the FSB for your motherboard. CAUTION: Setting the FSB higher than the processor's specification may result in permanent thermal damage to the processor.
