CPU not recognised at correct speed

Hi guys, i have a Gigabyte GA 5AX rev4 mobo with an AMD k6-2 500mhz chip installed, but it is only showing up as 366mhz at boot up and when running aida. I presume it's because the jumpers are set incorrectly, and the manual i've downloaded is as clear as mud! Can any body give me any pointers as to what i need to alter. I've tried looking on the gigabyte site for a bios update but can only find one for my mobo, in rev5.2. I am loath to flash it with a different revision number. Anyone any ideas? Thanks guys

If you go to the AMD web site you will find a page for your processor which will give the BIOS settings to enable the correct speed

From memory jumpers on Gigabyte motherboards may usually be set to auto and then the FSB speed, voltage etc are configured in the BIOS
