I decided finally upgrade my PC today. I had an athlon 1.2ghz prior, decided to upgrade to a athon 2100+, which I purhcased. Put in the new CPU, put on the new fan, turned it on, and my bios read it as a XP 1500+.

I thought "maybe I'm seeing things" so I let windows load up. Went into the hardware summary, and it read as an athlon 1500+ there as well.

Does anyone know what may be causing this?

I would guess that your multiplier is not set correctly, and your system bus maybe 100Mhz instead of 133Mhz. I get cofused on what the actual settings should be, but I would check your bios to see what these settings are, and then post them here.
