Hi,
   I recently upgraded my processor from a P133 to a P200-MMX. Once done, the computer only said it was a 166, not even MMX. So I upgraded my BIOS chip, on the advice from Unicore - distributors for Award BIOS. After several difficulties, it is now recognised as a P167 MMX ! How can I get it to be seen as a 200 MMX? I've tried changing the jumper settings, but to no avail... Please help!

It's probably not the BIOS, but the motherboard itself. Motherboards are built to handle a specific range of processors, and if yours was built before the 200MMX chip was available, it probably can't handle it.

Sorry to have to tell you this. It probably means spending another $100 or so.
