1800+ = 1.15ghz? surely that's not right

I'm still hoping someone can help out with my problem on start up/video problems but in the mean time I have a K7S5A PRO motherboard and amd athlon xp 1800+ processor so when I first turn on my pc why am I told my speed is only 1150mhz, I'm sure it should be 1.4/1.5GHZ. I think it's to do with bios settings or jumpers on the motherboard but I'm not sure.

in BOIS you need to set your Front Side Bus (FSB) to 133Mhz, looks like it is set at 100Mhz

This will give you the correct clock speed.

BIOS Frequency settings should be 133/133 for CPU and either PC133 or DDR2100 RAM. Check the manual for MoBo jumper settings (if any) or multiplyer settings for FSB=133.

Thanks again. Now I just need to get the computer working.
