Hi all

I just received a pc from a friend (wannabe1 to be exact haha thanks man)

well I am experiencing a problem

When I put in my processor it's detecting it as a 1.19 ghz AMD athlon XP+. My processor is a AMD Semperon 2800+ and its clocked at 2.0ghz on my other Mobo..

This pc now has 1gb of ram and its clock speed is 133 mhz, i doubt thats good. lol

Well, my question is , how can I make the mobo detect the full 2.0 ghz and it be a AMD Semperon 2800+? Thanks

Semprons run at 166Mhz Front Side Bus which may be the first solution. Change it in the BIOS or move appropriate jumpers depending on what type of board you have.
You may also need to flash the BIOS on the board before it'll know its a Sempron.

Alright I found the option where to change it to 166mhz which its now running at 2.0ghz just fine : ) but the ram clock speed is showing at 133 mhz when it should be 266 why is this?

It could be it's RAM:FSB ratio. Check around for it and make the needed adjustments.
