Default Cant overclock my new Dual core cpu. Not even 1MHz

I just got a new AMD Athlon 4600+ x2 and was hoping to get some pretty good numbers out of it. If I over clock by just 1MHz I get a screen at start up that says "please re-setting cpu" or something like that. It says press F1 to continue, delete to enter set up. If I hit F1 I can start windows with no problems but when I check the CPU it is running at 2411MHz. So my changes are not being applied. I have never had this problem before. How do I get around this or what do I need to change?

I have the latest. 7-6-07 is the date. This the most up to date version on Biostars site.

All I did was swap out a sempron 3400+ for the Athlon 4600+ x2. I had my 1.8g sempron running at 2.43 cool and stable all day. No problems. I do a 5 minute swap and now I cant even OC 1mhz??

I must be missing something.

The cpu chip may be of the version where it's locked. Run the numbers and see if that may be the reason.
