I realise this sort of question is coming up a lot but I can't find a post with an exact explanation for my problem.

I have a Sempron 2800+ on an Asus A7N8X-X board with an updated BIOS (rev 1010) which is supposed to support Semprons.

The jumper is in the default FSB 400/333/266 position.

The CPU is showing as Athlon at 1200 MHz

The BIOS shows an external frequency of 100MHz with a multiplying factor of 12

The memory is 512MB DDR400 PC3200 this is showing on boot-up as running at 200 MHz - is this right?

Thanks in advance for any help

No, you need to run at 12x166MHz

that would be an effective bus of 333MHz
