The FSB for that CPU is 133Mhz thats why it doesn't like 200Mhz - it doesn't want to fry

when it does boot up it only sees it as a 1250mhz

OK YOu need to set the Multiplier in the bios.

Of the top of my head that'll be 15 (15x133=1995 = 2000) It looks like it's set for 9.5 atm (133 x 9.5 = 1263.5)

i cant get into bios it is not playing wen i press delete any sugesstions

the athlon 2000+ needs a fsb of 133mhz and a multiplier of 12.5 ( this should be locked on the chip) as its correct speed is 1.67 ghz, not 2000 or 2.0 ghz

To access BIOS you may need to press a diff key (it's not always Del.) Hopefully you'll find yours here click here

mea culpa mea culpa

Goonerbill is right. It's so long since I put my PC togetehr I had forgotten. My AMD XP 2400 is at 166x12 - it should be 133x15, but I slightly overclocked it to match the RAM (I just logged rebooted to check).

You have a 2000 which has a lower multiplier.

So sorry.
