You have the CPU BIOS settings incorrect.

The XP2500 has a multiplier of 11 and an FSB of 166Mhz = 1.83GHz

I had a XP2500 before I changed PCs and I can confirm that 1.83ghz is the speed mine was set at.

Went into cpu bios, nothing would move!

Pressed wrong Button!!! nothing would move except chaged speed from 100 to 133. Now shows 1.66gig!!

Do you know make and model of motherboard?

  taffyal 18:28 28 May 07

not sure make, but it says on Belarc ECS K7S5A 1.0

In CPU bios setup, says Cpu brand AMD K7, Type Athlon XP, CPU speed 133/133, Core voltage 1.74, CPU frequency 133, Dram frequency 133. The speed is in white, & will change 100/100, 100/133, 133/133. Cannot change anything but speed.. Strangely, when I fitted it months ago, it read correctly. Only noticed it had changed today.
Off for some tea now, perhaps be better in 1/2 anhour!!

Check for jumpers on the Motherboard to change it

A ECS K7S5A 1.0 only has a maximum fsb of 133mhz. So you cannot run it at full speed.

1.6625Ghz will be the fastest it will run at i.e 12.5 X 133mhz.

It now shows as an XP2000, with 1.6. Funny though, when I first fitted it,(bought it 2nd hand with the mobo) I'm sure it said 1.8! Mind you, a long time ago, & memory (mine!) not what it was!! Time to turn off, I think, & have a glass of something cool & black!! thanks all, Cheers, Al.
