    I just recently flashed my bios using MSI Live Update, and now my Athlon
    XP 2400 is reported as being a 1700. I have done nothing to the
    computer but flash the BIOS. My MB is a KT4V.

    Any explanation or suggestions as to what the cause of this is?
    Should I un-flash my BIOS? Don't see any real performace change, but
    disconcerting none the less.

    " I have done nothing to the computer but flash the BIOS. "

    ....but in doing so, you have reset rhe FSB to 100 when it should be 133 for
    an Athlon XP 2400+.

    Flashing a BIOS normally resets all settings to fail-safe defaults.

    Thanks for the information, so any ideas on how to fix it?

  5. You have checked that the CPU has the right FSB set for it?

    My 2500+ (166MHz FSB) would only run at 100 or 133 after a flash on
    my "very old" KT3, so I had to set the FSB (and using slower memory
    settings) manually to 166 to get the 2500+. It took me more than a
    few BIOS resets, but now it runs just fine.
