My motherboard (an Abit NF7-S) recently died and was replaced under warentee with a Asrock K7NF2 (sadly I'm not making that name up...) Besides being ticked off about not getting another Abit or other high quality board, the Asrock refuses to run my CPU at the proper speed of 1826mhz. It's an Athlon 2500+. The BIOS on the Asrock will only run the CPU at 1100mhz. If I change the CPU speed to the proper setting of 166 the machine won't boot.
So it looks like the Asrock has major problems or my CPU was swapped out on me. Does anyone know of a program that will tell you what CPU you have that doesn't rely on the current speed which the CPU is running?
