my advice read the stickie at the top of the forum then have a go, your ram is running at 1:1 with your fsb which is 667 also you have a 32bit os which cannot use 4gb of memory.

Thanks Richard especially letting me know about the 32 bit system. Is there a xp pro 64 bit os available??

Yes there is 64-bit xp pro. And as for OCing e2200 the already mentioned OC guide at the top is a good place to start

I don't know if XP Pro 64bit is very supportive OS with its drivers. If you have 4GB of RAM and you want to OC your processor why not go for Vista 64bit? I've been running it for a year now without a reinstall and runs as good as a fresh install.

Thanks all for your advice etc- turns out one of my teenage sons mates is a successful and well practised o/c'er so it looks like he will be sorting that out for me. As for XP64 would that still run all the old software i have on my computer? Ie CUbase,photoshop etc or would i need XP64 compatible software?
