hello -
I just upgraded my CPU from a 1.1ghz athlon to a 1.4ghz athlon xp1700.
On boot up, it only says AMD Athlon 1.1ghz. Once XP boots, I look at the properties under My Computer and it says AMD Athlon 1.1ghz.
Any ideas how to fix this problem??
I have a Gigabyte mobo: GA-7ZMMH
I know the CPU is supported because it says so on the gigabyte page.

Do you have the latest BIOS?
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.
