You will need to work out what the motherboard make and model is, and download the motherboard manual from the manufacturer's website.

In a system that old, there are bound to be 'jumpers' on the motherboard which need to be alrered to enable correct CPU detection. It sounds like the bus speed and clock multiplier jumpers (or switches) are incorrectly set.
