Setting CPU Speed

System manufacturer / System name
July 14, 2009 at 20:55:33
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 801 MHz / 2047 MB
I have a self-built computer with a Asus A7V333 with the latest Bios, PC 2700 DDR memory and a Athlon XP 3000. I just recently upgraded the processor from a Athlon XP 2400. The 2400 was set auto. The only auto setting I can get the system to run on is 800. When I go to manual and set it at 166 with x12 multiplier or anything else, it will boot into Windows XP and shut down if a few minutes. What am I doing wrong? Help!

1. you need the latest BIOS, version 1017

2. you need to double check the jumpers & DIP switch settings

3. you need to make sure you installed the heatsink correctly, with the proper amount of paste & proper orientation of the heatsink on the CPU. Do NOT install it backwards!
