Go into BIOS and see if the FSB Frequency is set to 133/133 it should be that at least, it depends on the type of CPU that's in the computer

you have to turn the switch clock on the mother board off or opposite what it is then restart pc
you should get the new rating coming up now turn the computer off and change the switch clock back
had the same problem with the xp2800

the Athlon 2800, is a barton core cpu, and should run at 2.08Ghz. The fsb, should be set at 166, and the multiplier at 12.5
