I've got an older Compaq Presario 5155 that I've managed to upgrade with more
RAM, larger HD, ATI 7000, etc. It's running XP SP1 but it's sort of slow.
It currently has an AMD K6-2 (3D) running at 350 mhz.
So, referencing this page: http://mobokive.dyndns.org/Arc...paq/...pgradepath.html
I decided to pickup a K6-2 in the 500 mhz range. I bought a cpu
off of ebay that was pulled from a Presario 7470.
So, I pull apart the 5155 and drop the new CPU in. Hook up the
monitor and keyboard and pray. Luckily, it starts up and all
is well... Or, so I thought. Upon looking at the System
Propertes, it is still registering as an AMD K6-2 (3D) running
at 350 mhz. Using FreshDiagnose, it seems that the CPU is indeed a 550
but currently running at 350.
What do I need to do to get this thing running at 550 mhz? I'm sort of new at
motherboard tweaking so bear with me on this one. Is there a BF2 jumper that has to be set to allow for higher multipliers on this chip? Also, the cpu came with a nice heatsink and fan but I can't find a place to plug in the fan on the motherboard. Any suggestions?
