Change cpu speed setting

Specs: Windows 98 SE, 500 Mhz / 128 MB

Can someone please help me on how to change the CPU speed on my Windows 98. I used to have a CPU speed of 500 Mhz as it displayed everytime I rebooted my PC. Now it shows 333Mhz only. I have tried changing the CPU speed setting in the BIOS. However, PG UP / PG DOWN + or - does not modify anything. PLEASE HELP

Regards,
Rajiv.

Change your FSB speed. It should be 100MHz...somehow it reset to 66MHz

ASUS A7N8X-X
Athlon XP 1800+
8.5 x 200MHz
1024MB PC3200 2.5-3-3-7
Asus A9550GE/TD 128MB

Your CPU is supposed to run at 5 x 100MHz (500MHz)...it is now running at 5 x 66MHz (333MHz). I don't know how it got changed...either the battery is weak like YO suggested & the BIOS reset itself to default settings, or you somehow did it yourself. Without knowing what make/model your motherboard is, I can't tell you how to reset it other than to tell you to look in the BIOS.
