Need some help guys!!!!!!!!

I have just together a system with an AMD Athlon XP 2600 with an ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard, but after installing everything the CPU shows up as 1.04G, I thought it would be about 2.2G at least!!
Is this normal or have I done something wrong??

Your chip has the multiplier fixed, so you wont be able to change it from 10.5. At present your fsb is set to 100 (100 X 10.5 = 1050) Set it to 166. Hmm 1.75 sounds like a sempron.

Thanks guys, I changed the FSB to 166 and that worked!! and yes the multiplier was fixed at 11.5 so I couldn't change it, but all seems fine now.

Thanks again
