    I have an older pc with a BD100Plus motherboard running a Pentium ll 300 Mhz Processor, 128 mb sdram, and a MAXTOR 20GB hdd,I bought Pll450 to replace the 300 Mhz one, and i was told all i had to do was replace the cpu then enter cmos and set the processor speed to 100x4.5, i did that , and at first my operating system was fine and running but when i checked to make sure it was running at 450 it still said 300 Mhz so i re-started my pc and this time when it came on it said the cpu was 450 Mhz but my operating system wouldn't come up, what i wanted to know is do i need to update the bios on my board or is there something else i am supposed to do? please help!!

    Your boards manual states it is good up to 550 pii/iii so I doubt if a bios update is your problem.


    What error messages did you get and what operating system are you running?
