Help, is this the correct processor?

I thought my processor was an
'Athlon XP Barton 3200+ 400Mhz FSB' as I'm a little naive in these matters I checked via Windows XP - 'My Computer - Properties - General page' which said that the system was an
'AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1900+ 1.47Ghz' please can someone tell me if my processor is the one ordered which was an 'Athlon XP Barton 3200+ 400Mhz FSB' or if not how does this one compare or have I been given the wrong processor???
1900+ sounds miles apart from 3200+.

sounds like the Bios or Motherboard is not configured right for the cpu

PS I have a Athlon XP 2200 and it runs at that speed

It looks as if your FSB is only running at 133 ( 266Mhz). It would need changing to 200 ( 400Mhz) to give you a 2.2Ghz clock speed.

It will probably need to be changed in the bios, do you know the make and model of your motherboard?

it sounds as if you need to go into the bios and set the correct FSB for the cpu. if you dont know or are unsure on how to do this, post back what motherboard you have and someone will give you instructions on how to set the correct bios.

Thanks for your answers but I really don't understand much about bios etc. Hoever I would like to know if the system account of 'AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1900+ 1.47GHz' given on the General page of Computer properties is correct for an 'AMD Athlon XP Barton 3200+ 400
Mhz FSB'

I have a ASRock k7Upgrade - 800 motherboard

Sorry that should be ASRock K7 Upgrade - 880 motherboard and appologies to the person I sent the email to I got muddled using this site for the first time and thought I was posting the message on the site Oophs!!

Asrock make do a couple of boards that start K7, the most popular at the moment are K7S41 and K7S41GX. Do you know if it is one of these for sure?

Normally you have to change a jumper on the board when you fit a xp 3200+. But it all depends on which board you have as to which jumper to move!

Sorry I did not check my e-mails before I went to bed. It was quite late.:-)

Quick answer is what RealDopey suggested. They are jumper settings on the motherboard that change the fsb. This would mean opening the case and checking the jumpers.

What your board does have is a cool'n'quiet setting, but I think this is only for the 64 bit cpu's. This, again I think, drops the fsb down so it can run cool'n'quiet. lol


Do you know who made your machine and are you sure it is a 462 pin cpu and not a 754. As your board can take both.

you should not be getting 1.47ghz with a 2200 mine is 1.8ghz.
