My PC has an Athlon 2100+ processor which seems to be running at 1.3GHz, when I believe it should be 1.7GHz(?) Is there any way of setting it to run at the proper speed?

Is your FSB (front Side Bus) Speed set to 100? as it should be 133

Don't know. How do I check that?

As you boot the PC tap away at Delete. This will get you into the BIOS/Setup the setting is there. (it may be another key but it should tell you which as you start the PC)

Was able to set the speed in the BIOS okay, and it is now running at full speed. It seems to be running a bit hot though, so I guess it may have reduced the speed itself as a safety measure? I guess I'll have to look at improving the cooling.
