    Just don,t do it online.
    I have sucessfully fixed a problem similiar to that one before.
    It should work without you having to spend any more money.
    Follow the instructions carefully, and you will be fine.
    I beleive i have the same issue. I have the Amd Athlon XP 2600 2.08GHZ. After running Belarc Advisor programme - it reports it running at 1.25GHZ & the BUS clock at 100mhz only ?

    So if i flash the BIOS will this fix the problem & if so where do i find the programme to flash it, i have searched for American Megatrends Inc - but cannot find any links..

    Appreciate any help
