You need to raise the FSB to 166 mhz. You can do this from the bios. Read the manual to find out where to do it.

Go into the BIOS and set FSB (CPU External Frequency) to 133MHz.

did this but computor just hangs at start up then if i reset it a couple of times i can go into the bios and change the frequency back to 100mhz then all is well but it still only runs at 1500 mhz

That cpu is designed rated at 133 but should do 200 I get 210 with mine.

It does look like you stuck at 100 fsb. I know some Nforce2 boards have a jumper that locks the fsb @ 100.

So what kinda system do you have? Sounds to me like you need to change that jumper setting on the board.

If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.

What motherboard do you have? What RAM do you have?
Give us more specs and we can suggest things.

You hear guys sayin 166 or 133, I can tell you for certain: It's 133. Of course some guys will say 266MHz, but that's a DDR number based on a clock speed of 133MHz.

Hmm. The chip should work in that mobo. What sort of temperatures are you getting (look in BIOS or use something like motherboard monitor to see what they are).

Also do you know what rating (Wattage) and make your power supply is?

actually, just post as much info on your system as you can.
