I recently had my PC upgraded with a new mobo and chip and memory. I got a Syntax SV266A mobo, an AMD 2600+ CPU and 512MB PC2100 DDR. I installed the memory and the PC wouldn't boot. It just beeped at me to say there was no memory. I was advised to update the BIOS, which cured the memory problem but threw up a new problem. The PC now reports that the CPU is an AMD 2000+ running at 1.66MHz. It was previously reporting AMD 2600+ at 2.06MHz. Does anyone know how I can get the speed back without having to overclock. I took the fan off to verify that it was a 2600+ and not an overclocked 2000+. It is definitely a 2600+. Please help.
When i took the fan off yesterday it definitely had 2600 printed on it. I just can't understand why it was reporting 2600+ before BIOS upgrade and 2000+ after. As you can tell, I'm not as clued up as you guys.
