I have just replaced motherboard with an ASRock K7NF2-RAID, and CPU with an Athlon xp 2600+. I set the jumpers on the moherboard to FSB 333MHz, but in the BIOS the CPU is described as a 'mobile AMD Athlon(tm) XP - M' with a speed of 1.00 GHz. This looks a little weird - is it right or do I need to do something about it? I managed to boot into safe mode once before windows threw a complete wobbly, and the general tab of the system properties box shows it as a 'mobile AMD Athlon(TM)XP-M 999MHz, CPU Frequency 166 MHz.'
I will try changing the jumpers over and see if that makes a difference then. thought I had the 333mhz version, but there's nothing on the receipt to clarify, and it was oem so no helpful packaging either. Woodchip - thanks for the explanation, I've not seen mobile on cpu description before - it's a good thing then, right?
