If everything in your bios is set to Auto and your ram is DDR 333 then everything should be running @166
What are your bios settings ? are you sure you have a 333fsb CPU ?

i got ddr266 ram...which ive never used...would this change?
i dunno..that processor is a amd sempron 2200+. says 333mhz...i dunno..is it?
even if i had a 266mhz fsb, i need to set cpu clock to 133, i cant even set it to 133...odd..

I'm getting lost, you have ram but you don't use it ? how does the PC work

Turn the PC off and pull the battery and clear the CMOS, put battery back in and reboot, see if that helps till I get back.
= that manual is terrible, doesn't even say anything about settings or bios
So you can't set the CPU clock to "User Defined" and it only shows 132 ? does it show the CPU multipliers ?

oh sry. i meant ive never used in the past. i have the ram installed.
yeah. i cant set the cpu clock to what i want it..i type in 166 or anything above 132..and it reverts back to something under 132...
btw, my computer boots up just fine...with it being 132..is that normal?

Is your CPU running at 1.5 GHZ ?
I need to find out what everything in your bios is called, so I can tell you what to set everything at without messing things up.
If you clear the CMOS everything should set automatic correctly....but ????

ok, my cpu isnt running at 1.5ghz. running aT 1.1ghz. and i cleared the cmos and took out tha battery and left it without battery for a few min then put it back in, still the same. i cant set the cpu clock past 132.
choices in my bios that are relevent are:
standard cmos features
advanced bios features
advanced chipset features
---->dram clock/drive control
---->agp & p2p bridge control
---->cpu and pci bus control
---->system bios cacheable
---->video ram cacheable
lemme know if u need more info. thx so much for helping.

Ok it looks like your MB has a frequency selector jumper *JCLK1* look in your manual and make sure it's set right. If you don't have your manual then download this Jumper PDF
