Processor setup help.

I got a computer from a guy I work with that had a 1.2 gHz processor in it. I put in a 1.6 gHz but how do I update the bios to recognize the change in processors. I've looked and looked but I can't figure out what to change.

what is it

an AMD or Intel



did u raise the Front Side Bus to get the clock speed to increase?


can u board handle a faster CPU with bigger Front side Bus?


It's a AMD.

"did u raise the Front Side Bus to get the clock speed to increase? "

Considering I have no idea what your talking about, that would be a no. :) Is that what I need to do?

When you start your computer you should see a key to press to get into the BIOS.

Hit that.

Look around for Front Side Bus frequency. It may be under something like "Advanced Chipset Features".

You can change it from here. You probably want to set it to 133 to get your chip to run at 1.6 GHz.

Let me know if you have more questions.
