My Athlon 1700+ is only reading at 1100hz

I've just put a GA-7N400-L gigabyte m/b in my pc. Whin I switch on the black and white writing recognizes the processor as a athlon 1100 with the message CPUID 066> after it. Gigabytes tech. support says my PSU at 300w is not enough, and I need a 450w or 550w supply. Can this be correct?
I am running Win 98 with
2 x Hard drives. 20GB primary and a 6GB on a removable caddy.
128mb DDR Geforce 3 TI200 G/card.
CD drive.
CD/RW drive.
Front panel hub.
2 x case fans.

Just go into the bios and alter the cpu fsb to 133 you should be ok with the psu

I tried that. I did have to do it more than once though, to make it 'stick'. sometimes it dosen't mention the speed at all, even in the Microsoft System Information, just that I have an Authentic AMD

Is there a jumper on the motherboard to change from 100 to 133?

  Jonathan-295313 19:56 19 Feb 04

No, that I can see, and there's no mention of one in the manual of one. I did spend some time looking as there was on my last m/b.

See page 18 of the manual

Is that about the DDR introduction? I am running 512mb (2 x 256)of PC2100 DDR, Although not the same brand. I bought the second module at the same time as the m/b. I am using slots 1 and 3. I changed the m/b because of similar problems to, 'Blank monitor problem' and 'PC randomly doesn't start'

There is a jumper on the mobo that is set to 100 as default you need to swap this over for auto its between the agp slot and the northbridge fan

Nice one ........ I think. I've had a look, and there is a switch there. Looking in the manual (p14) it does say 'set system jumper' I was looking for a little plastic thing across some pins......dohh. I'm going to try it now.

Thank you for your perseverance.

Do you know if It will have damaged anything or is it a case of wait and see?
