How do I change the processor speed? I switched out the P4 @ 2.26 ghz processor for a P:4 2.8ghz. The bios says speed is 1.6ghz. Windows XP pro shows 2.8 and 1.6. I updated the bios to A07 and the Intel chipset from Dell's website. Still not able to change the speed.

Here I have found the technical specifications for this system, but for informational purposes it is pentium 4 and celeron 478pin intel only. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx270/en/ug/specs.htm
You'll need to have at least the following specs to run vista comfortable;
1 or 2 Ghz processor
1 or 2 GB RAM
Video : AGP with 256mb or more cache
Yoy might also have to consider changing your power supply.
