Used cpu-z it gives Bus speed 100MHz Multiplyer 11 which equals 1100 I think the Bus speed should be 200 X 11 = 2200 which is what it used to run at. How do I change the Bus speed, and how did it change itself?
You maybe right as I am having some Mobo problems booting as my graphics card is not in good contact (no signal to monitor) (fault on Mobo) and sometimes I have to remove it and replace it which means that the BIOS resets to default each time after I adjust it. MOBO is ASROCK K7S8XE+ (I dont like their BIOS)
Set Jumpers to 200FSB set Bios Manual to 200MHz BUT cpu-z gives Core speed 1097.4 Multiplyer x11 Bus speed 99.8MHz Rated FSB 199.5MHz
I think that as I have trouble booting (graphics card seating problem) After setting BIOS and when it fails to get a signal from card, I have to 'jiggle' card and when it boots it says it resets BIOS to 'default' so maybe it reverts to 100MHz? When it does boot the speed is lower than normal. I may have to get a new MoBo and CPU I think. Can we still get socket A (462) mobos?
(I built this comp about a year ago and this is the first major problem),(age getting me down now I'm 71)
The only ones you can still get socket A are PC Chips and AsRock, personally would prefer the AsRock as they are ASUS budget boards, heres an example click here better check it can take your chip before purchase.
