I just got some artic silver paste and put it on my AMD XP2200, then booted up and the computer told me the CPU speed had changed - now it is a XP1500. What can I do to get it back to 2200?? Thanks...

the thermal paster didn't cahnge anything nless you spilled abunch on the bridges on the cpu, rather the board may have picked up on it after a few boots after you ahd put on the paste
