I haven't been able to find out if my motherboard will support a change in bus speed for the processor while keeping current bus for memory. HP/Compaq can't help me :tazz: They also told me no BIOS is avaiable for my pc model.

I installed a new processor and it is still running at the old clock speed.
Am I stuck with a processor that's supposed to run twice as fast as my old but can't? Is there a jumper switch I can change? System is soooo slow just trying to speed it up some.

didn't someone say in another topic that brand name bios don't let you mess around with the frequency and fsb of the processor in an attempt at not getting problems and complaints when people try to O/C their processor..
