Got an answer from a friend to the above question.It appears the "AMD Athlon 1 GHz" I ordered fromVirtual Micro, according to both the BIOS and the DirectXconfiguration tool, is actually a "AMD Athlon 750MHz". My "hope" is that VM was simply incompetentand didn't properly configure the processor, so I'm going toplay with that first. If it turns out they just sent me thewrong CPU I will be unhappy with them, to say the least.- Kodiak
Hmm, check the boot bios. see what your bus multiplier is. 7.5 x100 = 750. 7.5 x 133 = 1ghz. maybe you just need to put the busup to 133. I know I had to do this when i got my 1.13 ghzathlon. the default was a 100 mhz bus on my mobo. i think youhit like f1 when you boot to go to the bios screen.worth a shot.
