    Ran into a bit of a snafu, wondering if some kind soul(s) might take pity and offer a hand...

    I've had this computer(home built) for a few years and never had any problems with it. I turned on the computer yesterday and the BIOS is showing the incorrect CPU, it shows Athlon XP 2000+. I can't remember what it used to say, I think 2400+ but I'm not 100%. Windows XP is showing my speed as 1.53Ghz which is ~300Mhz less than it used to show, as it used to show 1.8xGhz.

    I don't know exactly what my CPU is so I don't know what to look for when changing my FSB/multiplier and such. I used CPU-Z hoping it would give me some clue but it is also telling me I have 2000+ as an AMD Athlon XP(Barton). Currently my multipler is set at 11.5 and my bus speed is 133.

    Can anyone help me locate my missing ~300Mhz? Thanks.
