Abit KW7 does recognize amd xp 3200

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
 I updated the bios that came with this board using the abit flash
utility, and it "said" update was successful, this after my first
attempt at installing
 the amd 3200 333. Bios says "unknown cpu processor" gives it a speed
of 1875GHz instead of 2.2, I installed two different amd xp 3000 333
cpu's, and the MB had no problem in reporting the proper cpu and GHz
speed. reinstalled the 3200 333 and got the same bad read. Is it
possible that the bios is currupt or maybe I've been doing this to long
and have become corrupt myself. Cannot access multiplyer in bios. TIA
for any insight anyone may have as to this problem.

Multiplier should not need changed- try raising FSB to
166MHz (DDR333) and see what happens.  Identifying the cpu
by name is only a cosmetic issue, most important is that it
runs at correct speed.  You can check that in windows with

If you think bios is bad, try reflashing... then try the
next older version... newer version shouldn't matter from a
CPU standpoint other than the aforementioned cosmetic issue
of naming the CPU, otherwise more important would be if
there are any OTHER bugs fixed by newer bios, or more
rarely, new bugs introduced by new bios.
