I have an intel board L440GX+. The board did have one processor at 750 megahertz in it with a 100 megahertz fsb. I just got two 866 processors with 133 megahertz fsb, when I put them in and boot the i get a message saying "processor front side bus frequency mismatch". Does this mean I can't use my processors or is there a jumper I need to move or something?

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Right...I have two different IDENTICAL 866 Mhz processors. When I got the board it had ONE 750 Mhz processor in it. The problem happened when I pulled out the single and put the two IDENTICAL processors in the board.

Anyhow, I don't thing the board supporst the 133 Mhz bus and I am stuck with two processors I can't use.
