Hi Guys,

I bought a new BIOS upgrade Award BIOS 4.51 and install it on my computer (PII-266). My motherboard is 2A69JL1A. Before I upgraded my BIOS - I didn't have any problems with my P.C. except the time when I bought a 80gig disk. My computer can't recognize the size of the harddrive. So, I decided to upgrade my BIOS.

Now, when I boot up my computer it's saying that is a PII-133, and I'm also having a problem installing any operating system (win98, win98se, win2000) on my computer. Tried all types of intallation. But nothing worked. It always crashes or hangs-up during the installation process. I read some where that you have to disable the Virus Protection on your BIOS. I disable it, but still it crashes or hangs when I'm stalling my OS. Then I notice it when I boot my the BIOS sees my computer as a PII-133 instead of PII-266.

I also read somewhere that its possible the my computer is over clocking? Can any body explain this to me or have any ideas how I can remedy my problems...

thankzzz in advance.
