This happened before and I vagueley remember changing it in th bios, to auto settings but it doesnt seem to change this time. I didnt want to change anything too much as Im not sure what im doing.
dont know if its relevant but using XPpro 1gb ram

the front side bus speed has chenged to 100 for some reason - it needs to be changed back to 166 in the bios.

if you go into the bios - you will need to go to frequency/voltage control and change the cpu fsb from 100 to 166 and save the changes.

You really should have a motherboard manual so you have instruction what to do in the bios.
