Ok, I just purchased a new athlon 2500+ barton core processor as an upgrade to my old 1700+. The computer boots fine but will not recongize the processor as a 2500+. At the default settings of the MB it reads the ghz at 1.47 (what my 1700+ was). When I go to the bios and up the cpu host frequency to get the PC to recognize the 2500+ as what it is the computer will not boot. The problem is when i up the cpu frequency the agp/pci frequency automatically goes up too, to like 78/41 (I know the 41 is right). I tried upgrading to the latest bios and when i did my processor was then seen as a 1900+? but still 1.47ghz, and still the same problem when uping the frequency. My motherboard is suppose to be compatible with the barton core processors and supports the 333fsb. But what else could be the problem besides the mb.
This is the link to my MB specs http://www.albatron.com.tw/english/it/mb/specification.asp?pro_id=30
