You have to find in yor bios the section where to change the fsb and multiplicator factor of the cpu.I had same problem with an athlon 2400++...you have to upgrade it from 100 to 133 or 166 depending the case.
its   a simple routine work..just find the section in bios...explore it look for this cpu options..I cant tell you exactly where in bios because the bios version is differen from board to board..


and for the second problem
you have to make the hard with windows a bootable option
you may do this from bios too oor from the cable coneting the hdd with the mainboard...options slave/master.cable select..
however you have to set it like:"boot from...." from the bios


good luck .tell me how it worked
bye

Set CPU/FSB speed on KT40A-ANH MB


Don't screw around with jumpers. There are a buttload of fan speed hacks for software on the computer. Google Fan speed hack and you might find one that works.

Bartie,

First we need to properly identify your processor. You can go to AMD's website and under their Support and downloads page download a utility that can properly Identify your CPU Through codes it can read off of your chip.

If it is an Athlon 2800 this tool will tell you so. (Then it is likely your BIOS on the Motherboard just isn't recogniing it properly)

If it is an Athlon 2600 (Which I think is the more likely one) You may have purchased your Athlon from a less than reputable dealer. Who either remarked the chip themself or purchased it from a remarker at a discounted rate.

OK so now your wondering what is "Remarking" . This is when a chip dealer aquires a large amount of lower end chips then modify it by jumping some leads on the chip making it run beyond its intended rate (A process called OVERCLOCKING) and then prints a higher end processors stamp on it allowing them to sell it at a higher cost.

I hope this helps you
Dave

CPU Upgrade


Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)

BIOS DISPLAYING INCORRECT CPU SPEED


Hi, I have to agree "...that the motherboard's bios doesn't recognize the processor and that I should upgrade the bios...". Though I think that this is only a display issue and not necessarily true CPU speed. You can check if the correct CPU is displayed inside Windows by right click on My Computer and details would be shown in the System Properties. To upgrade the BIOS: 1. Determine/log your current BIOS and its date by pressing Pause on initial boot when motherboard details are shown; 2. Continue booting by pressing escape and run your Windows normally. Go to the website of your motherboard manufacturer and verify if they have an updated BIOS (compare date of release). If an updated BIOS is available, download. Likewise download the flashing utility. Further instructions are also available on a step by step procedure. Some newer mb versions/models have a Window based update feature. Check if you have such. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
