Not until you update your system specs so we know what motherboard you're using, etc.

thank you very much for your quick reply. heres my system specs

2.8ghz Intel Pentium 4 socket 478
VIA P4M266 Motherboard with Phoenix Techonology ,TLD v6.0 BIOS
2x DDR 256MB RAM 133/166mhz

that should be enough :O?

hmm I've been researching and found out that it might an FSB problem , its still set to 400mhz instead 533mhz but I have no idea how to change my FSB X_X;

Help is greatly appreciated
thank you very much~

PS: I know my pc is ancient but I need it XDDD

With most BIOS you can either hit the plus/minus keys when the FSB option is selected to raise or lower it in increments or hit enter and select the speed from a list.

Unless the BIOS options are locked as is normally the case with pre-built machines from HP, Dell etc.

How do you know it's running at 400mhz? Have you downloaded CPU-Z to check?

Is this your motherboard?:

This section allows you to configure your system for basic operation. You have the
opportunity to select the system’s default speed, boot-up sequence, keyboard operation,
shadowing and security.
