Computer Manufacturer: ASUS
Computer Model: A7V266-E
CPU Manufacturer: AuthenticAMD
CPU Family: AMD Athlon XP1900+
CPU Speed: 1211 MHz
Front-Side Bus Speed: 100 MHz
This particular processor is supposed to run at 1600 MHz, but as you can see, it's running too slow. Obviously, the Front-Side Bus is running too slow for me to get the proper processor speed; the FSB should be running at 133 MHz.
Now I tried going into the BIOS and changing it by setting it to 1600 MHz, but the computer hangs when that happens. So next I set it to Manual and tried switching the FSB manually to 133/33, but it still hangs. I then found out that the Vcore is supposed to be running at 1.75V, but it's only running at 1.575V, so I tried switching that up as well, but to no avail.
Next, I tried switching out of Jumper-Free Mode and using the jumpers on the MB to the proper settings: 12x Multiplier, 133 MHz FSB, 1.75V Vcore. It still hangs up.
I then accidentally switched the Vcore to 1.85V. It now finally would run at 1600 MHz . . . for about a minute. Sadly, at 1.85V, the computer overheats, as that's beyond what's it's able to handle. I switched it back and have a couple other problems on the computer because of it (with two specific programs), but we'll deal with that later (as it's unrelated to the core problem).
The computer is back in working order now (as in not overheated), but it's still running too slow. I've tried the BIOS and I've tried the jumpers, but nothing works. How do I get my computer to run at the proper speed? Please help!
