that's for certain.

I'll move this back to the Helproom - someone will come to your aid during the course of the evening.

boot into the bios, and change the fsb to 166, and the multiplier to 12.5

dont set bios at 166 fsb until you check which cpu you have, as there is a 2800xp which has a fsb of 133. down load aida32 and find out if you have 2800 thoroughbread or 2800 barton.

if thoroughbread set to fsb 133mhz and fsb 166 if a barton.

heres link to download aida32 if you dont have it already
