It seems the option to change my speed is greyed for security purposes.
How do i bypass this?

I do not have a manual.

If the solution varies between bios's, my bios is

BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG

In case you know references of finding out this information.

Thank you.

Try resetting your CMOS with the jumper, and don't set up any passwords on the BIOS. This may not fix your problem, but I bet it will. I had the same problem with the same BIOS and for some reason it wants to lock out a lot of things if a password/security option has been set up, even if you disable the password later. Resetting the CMOS was the only way for me to get it all to be available again. Let me know if it works for you.

ok i went here

AMD Athlon 2800

You can scroll down and it says hat the Bus on my Athlon should be 33mhz.

On my Bios it says

CPu Speed 2.801mhx/133mhz

I do not think this is correct.

BUT my iggest problem is i cannot even access that option, its greyed out.

NOT greyed out by password, the BIOS says im grey letters that if i change these to incorrect values it can cause unstability. I cant eve acess this option to change it.

I tried resetting the CMOS, still greyed out.

Please help me.
