hi guys, for some reason when I start up my computer and in Windows, it says my CPU is an AMD K7 Processor 2200mhz.
My actual processor is an AMD athlon Xp 3200+
I even re-installed windows and it still hasnt changed it!

The XP3200+ IS 2.2Ghz, 400mhz FSB (200)
and it is K7, Athlon 64 is K8..
the K# is sortof a "generation" name, pre Athlon the AMD CPUs were called AMD K6, followed by AMD K6-2 or something like that, then came the Athlon (K7)

Check for a new CPU driver at AMD or something if the naming bothers you, a newer one might change the name in windows..
Or on windows update..
