I just recently flashed my bios using MSI Live Update, and now my Athlon
XP 2400 is reported as being a 1700. I have done nothing to the
computer but flash the BIOS. My MB is a KT4V.

Any explanation or suggestions as to what the cause of this is?
Should I un-flash my BIOS? Don't see any real performace change, but
disconcerting none the less.

TIA

Eric

....but in doing so, you have reset rhe FSB to 100 when it should be 133 for
an Athlon XP 2400+.

Flashing a BIOS normally resets all settings to fail-safe defaults.

Thanks for the information, so any ideas on how to fix it?

You have checked that the CPU has the right FSB set for it?

My 2500+ (166MHz FSB) would only run at 100 or 133 after a flash on
my "very old" KT3, so I had to set the FSB (and using slower memory
settings) manually to 166 to get the 2500+. It took me more than a
few BIOS resets, but now it runs just fine.
