I have a KT6V motherboard and 2x sticks of 256mb memory. my Fsb on my motherboard is defalt to 100 and is currently set to 120. When i set it over 120 the pc refuses to boot. can anyone help me (if you require more detail can u be specific).

check your CPU's spec and memory's spec. Some CPUs only work on 100 and slow memory only take 100

my memory is 2x 333mhz 256mb PNY modules

You shouldn't have a problem, your motherboard and memory are more then enough for the 2200+.

Have a look in the BIOS at the CPU setting- you should see a range of settings.

Is the Athlon 2200xp+ mentioned?

If it is, select it.

I would switch off your computer immidiatley. Go to the bios and set it to 100Mhz and reboot.

On some motherboards, increasing the fsb step by step, also increases the fsb of your graphics card bus and PCI bus. This can put tremendous strain on the graphics card and also the PCI interface cards. They can fail.

Then come back to the forum.

Your 200+ runs at a 133fsb. This is changed in the bios.

Enter the bios and look for the frequency/voltage control. Set the cpu fsb to 133. Press f10 to reboot.

Does it show the right cpu now?

  pc moron 23:12 19 Feb 2005

Yes, with arch2571's spec the FSB should be 133MHz.

If he selects the 2200xp in the BIOS, he should be okay.

Thought as much. Even the dynamic overclock function is not recommended to exceed 10%, you have or are running it at an equivalent 20%.
