    You will need to look at the "Multiplyer"options in your Bios.

    Make and model of MB or system? You could also try setting BIOS to "default" and see if that fixes it.

    Your fsb is now at 166 instead of 200. Multipliers are locked on those cpus; the only way to change speed is by adjusting the fsb [front side bus]

    Have you read your manual regarding bios settings?
