I recently decided to upgrade my old computer that I use for some older games that have some issues with Windows 7. After some searching, it seems that the best CPU I could get was an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ 2.2GHz. After installing the CPU and booting up PC, the BIOS is detecting it as an XP 1900 1.47GHz. I reopened my PC to double check that I wasn't sent the wrong CPU, but it is indeed an XP 3200. Is there anyone who would be able to help me out?

You may need a BIOS upgrade to recognize the upgrade properly, go to the motherboards manufacturers site and download the latest BIOS for it.

The CPU is running at 133 FSB instead of 200. Go into BIOS and set the FSB at 200.

Main thing we need to know is what chipset is on the motherboard. On Compaqs the vast majority were made by VIA in 4 flavors, KT/KM 266, 333, 400, and 600(rare) series.

To successfully run that CPU at full speed, that board will need at least a KT/KM400 that supports a 200 FSB.

Looks like I only have a KM266-8235. I guess that answers that, what would be the best I could get for that motherboard?

http://www.epinions.com/specs/pr-2_1GHz_AMD_Athlon_XP_2800_512K_266MHz_CPU_OEM_AXDA2800DKV4C

That is a rare bird, and no guarantee the chipset would 100% support it.

Or go another route: http://catalog.ebay.com/AMD-Athlon-XP-M-3000-2-2-GHz-Processor-mobile-AXMA3000FKT4C-/74099830

Once again, no guarantee of support. I ran a similar CPU with an NForce 2 Socket A board and got a great overclock out of it. Since you have an OEM board, it will likely default to the default multiplier.
