The processor in my computer died due to overheating when the cpu fan stopped working. The original processor was a one gig AMD Athlon (thunderbird ?)
I am in the Philippines, and there are no AMD processors available for sell here, so when a buddy of mine returned to the states he picked up a used processor for me that was marked by the seller as 900 MHZ. Now that the processor is installed, WIN XP is telling me that the speed is only 500 MHZ. The computer is a powerspec 7805 with a Gigabyte GA-7ZMM motherboard. Are there some changes I need to make in order for the processor to run at the 900 mhz ? Here is what the powerspec website says about the motherboard.
Or did i just get stuck with a 500 MHZ processor ?
