    I just upgraded my computer. I put in an MSI MS-6378X motherboard for use with my AMD Athalon XP 2200+ Processor. Upon boot up I notice the processor is only running at 1.3 gHz instead of 1.8. How do I correct this to use the full speed of my processor. I know these two work @ the max speed together because my company uses them. It's been a few years since I've done and upgrade to the hardware and im a little rusty.

    Thanks

    Go into the BIOS and look for an FSB setting. It's set at 100 when it should be set at 133.

    Thanks. It was also a jumper on the board itself
