Hi Guys so here is the deal. I have two issues.

Here is #1:
I recently purchased a USED Processor AMD Athlon XP 3200-AXDA3200DKV4E to upgrade my current AMD Athlon XP 2900+ - AXDA2900DKV4E.

So I unplug my computer, power and all, place on rubber mat, wear the antistatic wrist - grounded - and off we go... Remove heatsink, remove old processor, placed new processor, place heatsink.. plug everything back in. Now this is what happened next:

1st Atempt: Screen was black and my monitor was not detecting and signals. Restart

2nd Restart: Seems like computer is going to load succesfully but right before it hits the windows splashscreen it goes black and does nothing.

3rd Restart: This time it loaded completely, but when it got to the windows login screen and i scrolled my mouse over my user name, that area turned black but i was still able to load my windows user. So the computer does its thing and loads itself but extremly slowly. I wait for it to load completly and open CPU-Z, while its loading my screen goes black and computer does not restart just stays black.

4th Restart: Blackness, nothing happened...

So i decide to put the old processor back in place, while im doing this, the heatsink is hot hot, so is the processor, which i thought was weird because when i had the previous processor in there I would never turn off the computer and it never got as hot as this one did. So i figured this eBay purchase was a damaged one, ill live with it! But why did it attempt to work in the first place? interesting :/

So this is where my second issue comes in. My "old" processor advertises:
Family AMD Athlon XP
Part number AXDA2900DKV4E
Stepping code AQYHA
Frequency (MHz) ? 2900 (rated)
2000 (real)
Bus speed (MHz) ? 400
Clock multiplier ? 10

But this is what my computer is running at:

Now before purchasing the new processor i called soyo to see if the processor was compatible with my MB and they told me YES! But how can I get the old processor AXDA2900DKV4E to run at the speed it advertises?

Thanks for your help! :P

I fixed the problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reason why the heatsink and processor was getting hot is becuase of all the collecting dust inside the heatsink! i cleaned that!

Then i set the JP3 jumpers 1&2 - 3-4 to ON and my MB was running at 200FSB... so i put on the new AMD XP 3200+ processor and when i reboot the pc it went as normal... Now my computer is registering at 2300MHz!

Oh and i also reset the CMOS!

Thanks guys for your help! NOT
