Hello,
I have a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2400+
Socket A (462)
Rated Bus speed 265.6 MHz

Can my motherboard support Barton?

It is a possibility then we need to know what motherboard you have, at least what chip set is on the board.

With that chip set VIA KM400 / VT8237 it should support Barton CPU's with 333MHz fsb. See list of Bartons http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_micr...
Fastest being 3000+ with 333mhz fsb

Ok, because I'm trying to sift through all of this info online and it's seriously like reading a different language sometimes. I'm going to copy n paste more of the cpu-z data and hopefully get that "should" turned into a "will". I really appreciate the help, I just don't want to drop a bunch of money on something that won't work, ya know.

With out knowing the exact name and model of the board all I can say that that chipset was introduced to increase the fsb from 266 to 333MHz. It will support Barton 2500+, 2800+ and 3000+ at 333MHz

ok, so i switched the processors, but it didn't work. i read something about switching the pins from 266 to 333... how do i do that?

we need to know which motherboard you have. It should be silkscreened (written) on your motherboard someplace.

There are jumpers on the motherboard so you have to have the correct make (manual) to set those.

Most socket A (462) boards have dip switches to set the CPU frequency. (do not see that on either board).
Your CPU should have worked anyway at slower fsb if it was OK.

I believe it's the Kamet2. It says "Kamet v 3.06". All I had to do was switch the old cpu with the new one, right? It was pretty simple, but when I turn on the computer, nothing comes on the monitor and the keyboard and mouse don't power up.

Being the Kamet it supports max 333mhz cpu is your 3000+ that, it was available as a 400mhz as well. Then it can be that you got a bad cpu. Do you see a dip switch (probably 5 little levers to move) on the motherboard
