    my friend got a new amd 2.4ghz processor with a brand new motherboard etc a
    KT4V - Via series board to be precise.

    Once it was put together and turned on the processor was only detected at

    I looked through the manual for him as usually there is a pin on the board
    that you can change.
    But all it says about changing speeds is via the FSB.

    anyone know what I have to do to get this working at the speed the processor
    actually is?

    Have you still got the FSB set to 100Mhz by any chance? If so, try
    changing it to 133Mhz.

    Change it to 133Mhz in BIOS.

    Hi gop,

    Fred and Navin are correct. That cpu should be running with a frontside bus
    of 133. There is probably a setting in the bios to set as such (if soft
    bios, if not, check the manual for a jumper or dip switch settings).

    Found a site that may help...

    Your board has AMIBios. When booting hit the <DEL> key and enter BIOS.
    Go to CPU PnP SETUP, which is the second item in the right hand

    Use the arrow keys to get to DRAM Frequency, then use <Page Up> or
    <Page Down> to change 100Mhz to 133Mhz. Save, reboot, and you should
    see your CPU being correctly reported.
