make sure the FSB is set to 166/333 and the sys bios is set to Auto detect.

Windows reads what the BIOS is reporting. What does the BIOS say for the Processor ID? If it says Athlon ****, then your Bios/Mobo probably is not programmed for Sempron Procs yet. Also, WinXP will show you ID speed -aka- 1700+, and below it it should show what it is actually clocked at. If it shows it is clocked at 1.583mhz give or take .010, then you are fine. It is just cosmetic that it does not show Sempron. Remember, Sempron proc's are just Athlon XP's which were "renamed" basically to get rid of stocked wafers.
