Question Easytune 4 - CPU Multiplier wont change?

Hi, i have Easytune 4 and was wondering why i cant change the cpu multiplier by clicking the arrows either side of it. Nothing happens when i click them, like they are disabled or something. I have an AMD Sempron 2800+. Any help would be appreciated

I think AMD locked them. Some Athlon XP's came unlocked, and all Athlon 64's are all locked. Only the FX series comes factory-unlocked.

he means u cant unlock the multipliers, e.g. 11x200!! the first two digits (11) are the multipliers and the second digits are the fsb which u can change!!

Yeah just increase the fsb, but only do this 1 mhz at a time!! To do this go into ur bios and choose system performance to user defined or summat l;ike that and then change it!!
