Hi all..

  1. Try updating your chipset drivers to the latest version if you have not already done so: Via Hyperion

    Next, try updating your bios to the newest version if you have not done so already: Asus Bios

    That should take care of it; if it doesn't, then go to your bios settings, and see if your bios has correctly detected the processor. It should be running at 2.2 ghz.
  2. Update the motherboard's BIOS. I believe you have the old Athlon XP "Palomino" CPU. If the mobo is as old as the CPU then it definitely will not recognize a "Barton" CPU. In between the older Palomino and the newer Barton core was Thoroughbred.
  3. His motherboard is newer then mine, and mine runs a Barton core well. There still may be a bios conflict. However, get CPU-Z to double check what it is being recognized as, maybe Windows has trouble with it for some reason.
