Thread: A processor de-clocking itself?

  1. #1

    Angry A processor de-clocking itself?

    I just bought a refurbed eMachine T3025. It had a Athlon XP 3000+. The first time I turned it on, the motherboard recognized it as such. The I installed XP SP2, and its not recognized as an Athlon 1.3 gHz. I think SP2 did this, but Im not sure, and I think that it would be completely abnormal. I was wondering if there was anything that I could do to fix it, resetting the motherboard maybe. If thats possible, I dont know what to do. System restore isn't working on my system either. I tried jumping back to before I installed SP2, but it said that i could not roll back or something like that. Thanks for any help that can be given!

    You need to go into the bios and put the FSB back up to 166mhz

    Wow, that was simple. I just reset BIOS becuase It didnt have an option to change the FSB, but that worked. Thank millions!

    That may keep happening. I replaced a mobo on a customer's emachine a few months ago due to a similar problem. The bios kept screwing up and reporting it had a xp1800 instead of the xp2400 it has and it would not boot into windows without a cmos reset most of the time.
