its 3000 your silly computer just got mixed up it was getting familiraised with the new ram. There is a thing called BIOS (tell me if i am wrong plz) and it is set up in the computer to tell all the parts that they are there in the computer (as in directorys) well the guy that you got the part from probably messed with that. Well thats what i think but tell me if i am wrong.

well i am not so sure as of cheaking them, but its probably through MSDOS or somthing. GOOGLE it you might find out there . also it may be drivers, but then again this is the cpu we are talking about wright?

oh no no no. To be honest, i have no idea what you are talking about. But 1700+ can be modded to run at speeds of a barton.
