Computer will not let me change cpu frequencies

I can start my computer up with the bios jumper set to configure and it lets me change the pentium 2 with mmx 300 Mhz processor cpu frequency to 300 or 330 Mhz only but even if i save the preferences at 330 Mhz the processing speed is still below 300 Mhz. no software i have tried yet works. and it will not run flash videos but runs every thing including audio from flash videos just fine.

A decade ago, 300 plus MHz was state of the art and could handle 32 Megs of ram. Windows 98 or ME ran well on such a platform. The newer os's and software need a lot more. From here, it looks like you have 2 choices:

  1. Install an old version of linux
  2. Replace the computer
Neither option is perfect. The video in your machine is barely adequate for flash, etc... If you had the bucks, you wouldn't be using a 300MHz P2.
My suggestion would be to upgrade with whatever you can afford. Some off lease specials can be pretty inexpensive.

Sounds like an old motherboard or CPU. Some have auto sense and will not let you overclock it no matter what you do.

Flash video: make sure you the most up to date adobe flash player from their web site. Some flash players may have operating requirements that may exceed your CPU, memory, video card.

A) JP5 jumper is right below the Ram Memory slots.
CPU Frequency Jumper.
(Processor; change internal clock frequency - jumper)

Vertical placement. 3-pin jumper. The TOP pin is number 1 pin.

With the jumper on Pins 1 and 2, the frequency is 100MegaHertz.
With the jumper on Pins 2 and 3, the frequency set is 133MHz.

B) The small 4-pin connector above the CMOS battery is for an internal speaker. (For BIOS Beep Codes)

The small 3-pin jumper that is Horizontally placed above it, is the JP1 jumper.
Clear CMOS Jumper.

The pin all the way to the Right, is the number 1 pin.

With the jumper on Pins 1 and 2, the setting is Normal.
With the jumper on Pins 2 and 3, you are trying to clear cmos settings.

From manual;

"To clear the CMOS memory, disconnect all the power cables from the motherboard, and then move the jumper cap onto the CLEAR setting for a few seconds."

Ummm, NO.

Unplug the computer from power. Put the jumper cap on pins 2 and 3 for 5 seconds. Remove from Pins 2 and 3, and put back on Pins 1 and 2.
Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Geez!

I don't see any other jumpers. Post back if I missed one, in a Comment, and/or for additional questions,

Regards,

I added a Pentium P4 2.66Ghz cpu 533FSB, Bios appears and says the due to new cpu installed system has started at 64Mhz please select correct Frequency. I select 2667 Ghz and 133Mhz saved and restarted....


Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on.
Wait a minute or two -- it may "time-out" and reset it to the "slowest" speed.

If that fails, look closely at the motherboard,
or read the manual for the motherboard, to find a "clear BIOS" jumper.
Turn the computer off. Move the jumper from "1-2" to "2-3".
Wait a few seconds. Move the jumper back to "1-2".
Turn the computer on, with the "default" settings.

Velocity and frecuency bios configuration


The best configuration? Well you would need PC100 ram, set the bios settings to 7.5 as the multiplier and 100 as the FSB... please let me know if you need more information than that.

ECS P4IBMS Motherboard CPU Voltage Jumper Settings


I don't believe that there is a P4 motherboard that needs jumper setting to specify the CPU voltage. This used to be common for Pentium & Pentium II motherboards, & some Pentium III motherboards. But I have never seen a Pentium 4 motherboard that require this kind of setting.
Besides, I checked the motherboard's manual & I saw that there is a sub-menu in BIOS labelled "Frequency/Voltage Control". This should be the place where the CPU voltage should be set, & on most motherboards, CPU voltage & frequency are automatically detected.

Overclock


I do not condone overclocking!

You can try upgrading your bios to the latest version. It may let you change the CPU settings.

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Fi [...] &strOSs=38

Intel boards are usually "locked" (BIOS), and are difficult if not impossible to overclock.

I DO NOT CONDONE OVERCLOCKING. IT CAN RUIN,TRASH, BREAK FOREVER, MAKE CEASE TO FUNCTION, if something goes wrong, not yelling at you just want to make sure you know what you are trying toget into.
But...They do sell boards designed for that purpose, I think you can get the board you have w/CPU for under $100. Look for a different board if you are serious about it.

Overclocking Pentium 3 667 MHz on MSI MS-6198 Motherboard


some pentiums are locked at the set speed but there are no jumpers you have to alter the settings are in the bios eg the timing and there may be step ups to increase the processor speed, but remember you get far faster response times by fitting more memory as overclocking can cause overheating and crashes.

ECS M925 CPU Change.


Dear Thegotoguy
Some motherbioard require manual setting of CPU frequency using jumper settings, especially the older MoBos. Again, the BIOS update should also be checked.

Good luck, n' get some life!!! :)

Up-date processor.


Check the manual for jumper settings on the cpu frontsidebus frequency. Also find out your cpus fsb or frontside bus speed and match it with the motherboards jumpers if possible.

How to find out details of the processor?
Pentium III 1ghz - download cpuz www.google.com cpuz download

it will tell you more details of the cpu. If you post here a image of the cpuz screen or all the details it shows you can I tell you the correct fsb speed.

Then you need to find your motherboards manual and the part about those jumpers. and set them correctly.
