So I bought this motherboard off of ebay (Micro-Star MS-6734) and i put everything together w/ my cpu and whatnot.
Start it up, find out that my AMD Athlon XP-M 2800+ was running at only 800mhz from 2.1ghz. So i don't even bother installing windows.
I take that out and put my dad's processor in, thinking that it was a desktop processor since it worked fine with his Foxconn motherboard (my 2800+ didn't work with his)
I start it up and install windows. Then i notice that it was running at 1.2ghz out of what i believe to be 1.5 or 1.7.
My Computer won't tell me anything more than it's an AMD Athlon, Everest too, but CPU-Z said that it was an AMD Athlon MP, so I Googled that for a second and found that it was a server processor.
So my situation is this:
Is there any way I can get this back up to speed?
If not, would I be better off trying with the 2800+ and seeing what I can do with that?
2gb DDR1 RAM
nVIDIA GeForce 6200 256MB OC
and trying to get either whatever this AMD Athlon MP processor is or my AMD Athlon XP-M 2800+
Thanks in advance for the help.
(thanks to OT for doing the google search before I did)
