im guessing the cpu settings in the BIOS were reset when u changed over the power supply. You need to find out what motherboard make and model you have and make the correct changes in BIOS to set the CPU to the right speed.

Take a look at your motherboard manual, or google it.

right had a google for "MSI K7N2G manual" and found your manual.

You want to have a look at chapter 3 - BIOS and Advanced Chipset Features.

Here u can alter the FSB. I assume its currently showing 100Mhz, where it should be 166MHz. Assuming you have a Athlon XP 2800+ Thoroughbred 2250MHz
(FSB = 166MHz*13.5mp.)
