    You have the FSB set to the wrong setting. Some motherboards have a jumper or dip switch to set this but others will just do this in the BIOS. ;)

    However if the CPU is unlocked then you probably have the wrong multiplier sellected. :devil win

    What type of mother board are you using?
    You FSB settings should be 133/133

    Of the two different socket A boards i remember setting up whole systems on, one used a soltek, one an epox. Soltek, change a jumper, epox, simply change FSB from 100 to 133 in BIOS.

    100x12.5 = 1250 = 1.25GHZ = Athlon 1250mhz
    133x12.5 = 1663 = 1.663GHZ = XP2000+

    So quite simply youve got your FSB running at 100, instead of 133.

    On my mobo you can switch some dipswitches around to change the FSB. But yeah it's running at 100fsb instead of 133
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    I think he was replying to him. Telling him that he was running it on 100 instead of 133.
