2000+ processor

  pcfranco 17:32 09 Mar 03

Hello, iv just upgraded my processor from 1600+ to 2000+, but it shows up as being 1521 mhz. The 1600+ showed up ok.
I have a gigabyte ga-7vtxe m/b and the clk jumper is set to 133. Can anybody help

What does the BIOS say your multiplier is?

XP2000+ = 1.66GHz @ 266

1.66 = [12.5] x 133

As Lead says, check in BIOS for settings. CPU should then be recognized correctly and show as 2000XP, and not as Athlon 1.66, (Although 1.66, is the correct speed). J.

All is ok then.
The GA-7VTXE only supported upto 1800 or 1900...but a bios updae shoud allow you the increase to 1634.
