Recently ungrade to Vista (32 bit) and decided to upgrade my processor.  My motherboard is a Intel 915GAG with FSB of 800mhz.  My old processor was a pentium 4 2.67 Ghz.  Put in a new pentium 4 3.2 Ghz but it is only running at 2.13 Ghz even though I have updated my BIOS and it is recognized as a 3.2.  Any suggestions?
