I would gues you have the FSB set incorrectly. Tell us what the processor is and we can tell you the correct settings

it is a duron 1.8ghz cpu and it is stated to have an fsb of 266 on the box but i think my motherboard is only running at 66mhz

You will need to set the FSB to 133 Mhz in the BIOS

  Majin_Vegetto007 20:12 21 May 2004

even when i did that it still only came up as a 1.35ghz one

The other factor that decides the speed is the Multiplier.

If you processor is an 1800Mhz running at 133Mhz then the Multiplier should be 13.5

how do i change that then

  bremner 20:30 21 May 2004

It is normally a setting in the BIOS on the same page as the FSB setting.

If you have difficulty post details of the motherboard

my motherboard is a pcchips 810lmr, iv been told that this motherboard can take any duron speeds and some of the athlon thunderbirds but none of the athlon xp's
