What does it show on the first screen when you boot?

Also check your bios to make sure the bus speed and cpu are right. Possibly one of them is wrong.

It is possible then that pc probe is giving you a false reading. It should be running at full speed with the xp1700 showing on the first screen.

Start/run/type dxdiag and press enter. The first page will tell you your processor speed

Some "sytem info" software can be faulty. Do as Brian says and check you OS readout itself. And I'm usre you and others are aware, an AMD 1700 XP CPU is 1.47GB
