When you first boot the computer, the asus bios program will ask you the frequency of the cpu assuming it is set on auto. It will give you two choices, which I believe are 1.333 and 1.533. If you dont set it, it will default to the lower frequencey. Go into to your bios and choose 1.533 and u should be all set. Hope this helps.
If what jedge told you to do don't work... then I have a question. Do you have a lan card in your system? I had a Lan card in my system that changed my speed down to what it could handle. I think it was at 1050 or something and then RAM to 133 when its supposed to run at 266. Don't ask me how or why it did that but just my little 2 cents.
Which Asus MB do you have?

Make sure your multiplier is set right XP runs at default if you don't set it.
Reset the CMOS. This will make the mobo use the CPU's default frequency and multiplier. You might want to write down all the BIOS settings before you reset the CMOS.

pretty sure the default speed is 1.339 or something like that
Maybe the 'Assembled in Malaysia', has something to do with that. I am always skeptical of a 9 year old assembling anything.
Yeah, but a 9 year old would already have several years experience. You have to watch-out for CPUs assembled by the 6 year olds who are just starting out.
