Unknown CPU Type - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Alright so Im sitting at my grandpa's place now and checking CPU-Z. Im getting the following information from it:

Name: AMD Athlon XP
Code Name: Thoroughbred
Package: Socket A (462)
Voltage: 1.648 (Seems very high?)
Specification: Unknown CPU Type

Core speed: 1513,6 (Very strange frequence?)
Multiplier: X 15
Bus Speed: 100,9 MHz
Rated FSB: 201,8 Mhz


I think thats all the usefull info from CPU-Z, if not I'll try upload a picture.
I've also checked his RAM, its 256 and graphic card was Geforce4 MX 440 with AGP8X.

And oh yeah some info about the moptherboard (from cpu-z):

Model: SiS-745
BIOS version: 6.00 PG


If I were to upgrade BIOS any idea where to look? If I search for SiS-745 I just get weird hits. Thanks again for all help.

It sounds like you've gotten a wrong batch of T-Breds, lol. Voltage is completely fine though, that's the stock of those CPU's.

If he is runnin XP make sure you turn off all visual settings etc, try using Win98 will run alot better on his machine.

or stick in another 256 or 512 stick.
