CPU recognised incorrectly

I have an XP athlon 2100+ processor fitted to a new motherboard but windows XP only recognises it as an XP athlon 1500. Does this mean That I wont get full performance out of the processor? Is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks

Have you set the fsb to the correct speed in bios?133 i think, and it should be showing as 1.73Ghz for correct speed.

The bios set the speed automatically and I am not sure I can manually adjust the settings. I will have access to the computer in an hour so will check then.

Thanks

ACOLYTE is right, change the FSB to 133mhz from 100mhz will then report the proc as an athlon 2100

Yes changing the CPU detection from automatic to manual in the Bios gives the CPU detected as 2100+.

Thanks for your help.
