Has anyone any idea what CMOS memory size wrong means?

I have just cleared my CMOS and this was the first thing that greeted me. I only ask since I am having awful trouble getting my PCChips 810 v7.1a M/B to recognise the FSB 266MHz. When I set the BIOS to recognise 1700XP SISoftware Sandra accuses me of overclocking the FSB. My RAM is 256MB PC133.

The M/B should be able to run an Athlon upto 2600 at 266 easily.

Any ideas?

I remember that message on 486 and older boards with AMI BIOS. This "error" was displayed when the memory size has changed. The soultion was to enter setup, save and exit.
