Right off I can see that your bus clock is slow, if you can set it to 100mhz that should raise the processor speed by 50%. If you don't have the manual you can usually download it from the mobo maker's site, mostly in .pdf format.

What you might have to do is set the bus speed to 133mhz and reduce the clock ratio. Is you memory pc133?

Hi , once again thanks for all your help. This is the link to the manual for my mobo (PCChips M810LR). to answer Tyger question ,my memory is pc133. In the bios I was finally able to change the cpu speed form 1100 to 1700+, when I do this it changes the CPU frequency form 100 MHz to 133 MHz and the cup multipier stays at 11 x. this is a scan of the cpu info after the change of cup speed to 1700+.
CPU Properties:
CPU Type AMD Athlon XP
CPU Stepping A5
CPUID CPU Name AMD Athlon™ XP 1700+
CPUID Revision 00000662h

CPU Speed:
CPU Clock 1459.80 MHz
CPU Multiplier 11.0x
CPU FSB 132.71 MHz (original: 133 MHz)

How can I up the cpu speed to 1700 if I can't change the the bus speed to anything over 133 MHz or change the cup multiplier to anything over 11x.. thanks again

Amds use intel equvalenvy rating speeds so 1 1700+ is equivalnt to a 1.7Ghz P4 processor, so you are running at the right speed, be happy youve fixed the problem.

warriorscot is correct as usual your cpu is now running at the correct speed See here

scroll down to the 1700 its rated clock is 1467mhz yours is at 1459.80 and thats close enough.
