Nvidia Nforce 2 Mobo
Recently purchased AMD 2100+ processor

When I boot up my system is indicated an "AMD XP 1500+ Processor"

When I look at My Computer, it sayd "AMD 1500+ Processor"

This processor is more than likely intended to be run at a Front Side Bus of 133 Mhz. Check in BIOS setup that your FSB is set to 133 instead of 100 MHz.

Sounds as if you got conned. Even if the numbers you see are the actual CPU clock speed, the 2100+ runs at 1.73 GHz, not 1.5

I would go back to the supplier and insist on the correct chip
