    There are three jumpers on the mainboard of this laptop.
    Can anyone tell me what they are ? S1 S2 and S3.
    The problem I have is that the laptop is running at 450 MHz while the
    mounted CPU is a 550 MHz one.

    Thx a lot

    So you need to kick your bus up from 75MHZ to 100 at 6x
    Did you run Sandra Sisoft to see what the bus speed is and the core

    I am assuming that this motherboard has not been screwed with .
    I believe the core is designed to work on 2.0 volts but will also run
    on 2.1

    I am assuming since it is 450 it is running 75 at 6x
    I am just thinking the switches are at 6x and maybe the proper

    You did explore the bios and look for a option to change bus speed.
    If it is an award bios it has a great chance of just being the bus
    setting in the

    I am currently looking at the switches on othe MB's and seeing how
    they look.

    If it is in the switches I doubt there is a setting for more than 6X
    I also doubt you will get more than 2.2 volts
    The bus and multiplier settings are usually 2 switch involvement.

    I do not see where you can go wrong but you will have to
    run sandra each time or look at the cpu number on boot.
    You could experiment with a very small degree of danger

    Also you will not get that much more running 500 vs 450
    It is not like 550/450==22% increase
    Does not happen that way.
