Armada E500 BIOS reports wrong processor speed

\015 The bios says that it is an 850 mhz processor, but the Intel frequency utility and XP both see it as 700 mhz. So, if automatic stepping is set in the bios, the computer will power itself off when using the AC adapter (battery works fine). If bios is set to disable stepping, everything works fine and it is seen as 700 mhz processor with no stepping. I have tried reseting bios (Fn-F11), but it still sees 850 mhz and powers off with stepping. How can I get the bios to see the processor correctly (I have already flashed the latest bios)?\015

How do i change the memory bus speed on my dell optiplex 170l? The CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.4GHz. The mother board processor speed is 400MHz and the Bios indicates a memory bus speed of 266MHz and does not seem to have an adjustable option. If the CPU can run at 400MHz then why can't I get the memory bus to run at 400MHz? Origanuly this system was shipped with 2 X 128MB 333MHz DDR CL2.5 Non-ECC DIMM modules and yet the bios indicates memory speed at 266MHz.
