Athlon XP Part Number Breakdown

Hello, my CPU won't run at full speed. I can get it to go at around 2600+ speeds, but no faster. My bios (A7N8X 1002) ignores settings that take it any further.

The part number is AXDA2700DKV3D. Any one know how I can break this down to understand what this chip is. I am looking for clues (other than the 2700 bit).

Thanks,

muff

This is a AMD Athlon XP2700+ 2.2 GHz 333 MHz bus Socket A (Thoroughbred) Processor

AXDA is core stepping I believe D is Tbred with 333fsb, a C would have been Tbred rev B 266fsb

Hmmm, wonder if I can get a valid page fault ???
these invalid ones are far too commonplace...

So why can't I get the stupid thing to run over 12.5x166?

It is a perfectly normal 2700+ right?

Frustrating.

I'll check the bridges. But 12.5 * 166 is not what a 2700+ is rated to run at. I can't get it go to its rated speed of 13*166.

Any ideas?

go into the bios and set the multiplier option to default.
this should then recognise it correctly

I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

Thanks rcj187, you are completely correct, it *should* recognise it correctly.

It doesn't however. If I leave it on default, I end up with the settings for a XP1500+ or something.

This is how I discovered the maximum I can take it to.

on the motherboard there are jumpers to set the fsb speed. one position is for 100(200) the other is for 133(266) and 166(333). make sure you have set this jumper correctly as this may be what is causing you problems. i have that board and it does support the 2700 cos i oc my 2400 past that

I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

Yeah... I have checked this aswell. It is set to the 266/333 position.

It is a weird one. And I have the 1.04 rev and bios 1002.

The label is correct, the bios rev is right, the board rev is right, I have a nice clean power supply. My ram is 333DDR.

I don't know what else to look for. Have I just got something broken?

ok im running out of ideas.. try resetting the bios?

I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

have you tried updating the bios? what exactly happens when you try and go to a 13xmultiplier? does it boot at all? does it ignore it and boot as it was before or does it boot at much lower speed? 666mhz for example?

I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

When you come up with something let me know!

Have the same board but with an XP1900 (AGOGA core)512megsPC2100. I was going to OC a little but I cant' get the thing past XP1700+ acknowledgement. And its shakey at that. 50% of boots generate and overclock error in POST and it kicks it back to 1000mHz?

Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most...

Set ur FSB jumper to 100/133.........

defualt of 1000Mhz would mean a FSB speed of 100MHz and a Multipleir of 10...

a 1900+ has a multiplier of 12.0.........so it SHOULD default to 1200MHz....

anyways i dunno....
