    i installed a amd athlon 1700+ on a soyo-k7ada mobo and i am my mobo detects it as a 1100mhz cpu.

    i changed the cpu frq but all that did was show a blue skreen sayin "hardware malfunction. contact your hardware vendor for support"

    i emailed amd and they told me to do what i had already done, which was change the frq.


    Please help.

    A bit more detail on ya hardware would be nice but if ya usin' PC2100 and have the memory set for runnin' at 33MHz above the FSB speed then this is likely why ya getting the BSOD as 166MHz is usually to much for PC2100 so bring the memory speed back to that of the FSB. But as I said, more detail of all ya hardware and settings would help a lot.
