I have a gigabyte 7vt600P-RZ motherboard. and an amd processor that i thought was an athlon xp. but when i boot up it says amd athlon xp 1.667mhz, and when i run a program called cpuid it tells me it is an amd MP processor.
i took the cpu out to get the code from it and it says SDA2400DUT3D. and it says on the chip that it is a sempron. how can i get my motherboard and computer to recognize the processor correctly?
I run windows xp prof. service pack 2, with 1 gig of ram.

thanks
kevin

Flash your BIOS, that should solve it. You probably have one of the older BIOSes that doesn't recognize the Sempron.

It's a cosmetic error. It's running at the right speed (10x166~1667MHz).

A bios flash should sort it and is more or less risk-free on those dual-bios Gig boards. It's not really necessary though.

You need bios version F3 or above to recognise cpu as a sempron..
