Default 5 Year Old Sony Vaio Question...

I have a Sony Vaio PCV RS220 computer. i recently bought a 2.8ghz p4 with HT socket 478 processor to replace the one that crapped out on me. The stock cpu was a 2.5ghz p4 w/o HT. This stuff is so old that im having trouble finding the answer to my problem...

The problem is that my computer will only read the new processor at 1.4ghz, cutting the clock in half! The FSB is also only reading at 100mhz when it should clearly be 200. It isnt as simple as tweaking a setting in a Sony, they have the bios under lock and key.

Can anyone tell me how to get my processor to run at the 2.8ghz its supposed to? Or how to up the FSB?

If you need any other specs just ask, ill give you whatever info you need.
