Question about Computers & Internet
I have an IBM Aptiva 2153 E2U with an AMD k-6 2 333Mhz processor. I want to upgrade to AMD K-6 500 Mhz. I have plugged in the new processor but I think I have configured it wrong. When the system boots up it registers as 333 Mhz.
May need to be configured in the Bios, but also some older boards had processor adjustments on the motherboard, either with a block of little white dip switches, or with jumpers that you remove or replace depending on the processor. Some times the settings for the processor are printed on the board too. Are you sure the motherboard can take a processor up to 500MHz.
If you don't have the manual for the motherboard have a look on it for the make and model number and search google for it. If it is available it will probably be an Adobe pdf file so make sure you have Adobe's Acrobat reader.
