AMD athlon XP 2600+ confusion...

Why is this processor showing up as a speed of 1.97GHz, when the BIOS is compatible.

I thought it was 2.13GHz?

It is the 333 version, not sure if model 8 or 10 though.

Also it shows up as Unknown CPU type, but in another computer this shows up, but the speed is still 1.97GHz, and yes it is set to 166 in the Bios, and the multiplier is correct.

Could you tell the the F number, the revision number in other words?

Do you run the F11, latest revison, or the default F5?

It should say at post?

The supplier says it is a barton? Correct is he?

I am not aware of a 26 barton.

Its fine, ZIPs are not deleted automatically they are passed through several virus scanners and then a notification where I can collect the virus free file on my server.

Sorry about that.

No need to be sorry, its better for you in the long run as you stay virus free. I think all isp's should do the same?
