Hi guys !

Yesterday I installed my "new" CPU, an AMD XP 3200+ barton, but my system says it's a XP 2500+ !!! :thumbsup:
Could it be, that I need to update my BIOS ? Haven't updated it for years...

OS: Win XP pro with sp 2
Motherboard: ASUS A7V600-X

Thanks for Your advise!
Greetings

What does CPU-Z have to say about it? Also, what does it report as your Bus Speed and Multiplier?

You shouldn't need to update the BIOS for the motherboard to recognize a XP 3200+

Just ran CPU-Z. It also says, that it's a AMD XP 2500+... :thumbsup:

It reports a bus speed of 165.7 MHz and multiplier x 11.0, what ever that means...

go into bios and return all the cpu settings to auto, if they are already on auto then you don't have a 3200 cpu

Just checked the bios-settings. In deed, the CPU-settings are already on "auto"... :thumbsup:

Please confirm - does this REALLY mean, that somebody scr... me up with this CPU and it is NOT a XP 3200+ ??? Or is there anything else left to do, in order to check it out??

Thanks again !!

What type of memory do you have?

many of the older barton 2500/333 had unlocked multipliers and could overclock to 3200 speeds by raising the fsb to 200/400
from 166/333

you should ask for a return

Yeah, guess You're right :thumbsup: At the moment I am pretty p... off because of these problems and not in the mood to dismantle the whole thing again...

Just set it to 2,2 GHz in BIOS and NOW it says, it's a XP 3200+ ?!?!?! :flowers:

Correct me, if I'm wrong, but isn't 2,2 GHz the standard for XP 3200+ ?? Shouldn't it be possible to set it even higher, if it would be an original xp 3200+ ? Because now, it at the maximum speed at 2,2 already...
