hi i recently bought a new computer i was wondering about the speed and the temp the cpu is 1.8mghz amd and currently it is running at 1.3mgz i looked at the motherboard manual and the cpu speed is set on the board to 100mghz so i removed the jumper and put it on 133 mghz making it run at 1.8mghz but windows wouldn not boot and my cd drive wouldnt boot to try to reinstall windows so i put the pin back to 100 mghz and it booted fine any one kno what i can do?

also the temp on my pc varys from 51-57 degress celsius is that high?

Your temps are normal. Making it run faster will make it hotter. My suggestion would be to leave well enough alone, unless you're a gamer and looking for lightning speed. In that case study the CPU and motherboard manuals very carefull to find what you can do. Obviously something is limited to 100mhz, you may have to change it or live with it.

Please tell us if it is a name brand computer and if so the make and model number

If it is a custom build list the full system specs including the cpu, motherboard, ram and psu.

First set the jumper to 133 and see if you can enter bios and load the optimized defaults and then see if the processor is running at the correct speed and if windows will load.

If nogo then,

Could you tell me what the cpu multiplyer in bios is set at, should be 13.5.

the stock setting should be 13.5 x 133 = 1800 mhz

Some older durons had unlocked multipliers. If the multiplier is set higher that could be the problem so try and set it at 13.5, I doubt you have one of these processors but you never know

Also make sure the vcore is set to 1.5 maybe try uping the vcore to 1.575 but keep a eye on the temps and keep them under 60c when in bios or at idle in windows.

Make sure you know how to clear the cmos using the jumper on the mobo before changing bios settings in case after the changes the system won't boot.

i tried what u told me and it when it went to boot the message theres an error with the operation system and it wouldnt boot so i put back the jumper on 100mghz and tried to boot got same error tried to repair windows still wouldnt work so i cleared the cmos and reinstalled windows now im installing my programs again other then that why wont the 13mghz boot i dont understand what if i leave it on 100mghz and in the bios change the overclocking to 133mghz will that make a different? if i wanted a 1.3mghz chip i would of saved about 10 bucks ..

It seems to me that you have one of two potential problems: either a component in the computer (possibly memory) is not supporting 133 mhz or a line on your motherboard is damaged and doesn't allow to use this frequency.

I think that what you should do first is go back to bios and set it to default values and not to best performance values. Best prformance values are rather demanding and if some componetnts are not up to this demand you will have problems. second, can you increase the multiplier to 18? If yes, then leave the speed at 100 mhz and increase the multiplier.

what memory are u using and altho tho its not the point i think u mean "mhz" not "mghz" also does the board have a jumper setting that allows it to be set to "auto" rather then specifying the fsb this may work.

the 100mhz, 133mhz, 166mhz, 200mhz is the fsb, so if u were running 100mhz would hbe 200fsb, 200mhz results in 400fsb etc. maybe try a bios flash to update it see if this makes any differance.
