Here my problem:
I bougt an Athlon XP-M 2800+ with the well known IQYHA stepping, the vendor promised it would work @3200+ (11*200).
Now, i got the Gigabyte Mainboard, GA-7N400S-L, it is very stable and you can change every setting your could wish, except for the multiplier -.- .
In a few Forums i could find problems concerning my MB and xp-m cpu's, in the most cases the multiplier was set to 6 default by the mainboard, making the cpu work with 800Mhz.
I now have 2 questions to you (modding) folks .
1. Could it be possible to change the multiplier with a software tool, if the MB doesn't support that as long as the multiplier isn't locked? (EasyTune eg. supports fsb changes under winXP, but the ratio of my 2000+ can't be changed, either cause the board doesn't support it or caused by the fact that this cpu is locked)
2. Could someone of u tell me how to hack/change the bios, so that it correctly detects my athlon xp-m with the settings i wish (meaning 11*200) OR make it possible to change the multiplier in the bios settings? (btw. i've no idea how to change anything inside those *.bin files)
In fact, i want my MB to detect the 2800+ athlon xp-m (133*16) as an athlon xp 3200+ (11*200) or at least with the multiplier set to 11 by default.
Its an Award Bios v6.00PG
the version i'm currently using can be downloaded here:
All versions of this Bios can be found here:
I found out that the *.bin can be opened with modbin, but i don't no where to add the profile (microcode!?) of my cpu if that's possible anyway. PLEASE someone HELP! (It's very hard for me to find information concerning to my problem in forums, because every forum i found is english ^^. thats why i depend on your help guys)
I really don't want to buy a new mainboard, cause i like this one a lot .
Looking forward to your answers,
