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
