Hi.. I have an old laptop which I will be using for storing photos while traveling. I`ve just done a little bit of upgrading and am having trouble to get it to read a 233mmx chip AS 233mhz.. its reading in the system setup as only 166MMX, and I`m hoping a Bios upgrade will fix that. Unfortunately its not a brand made laptop, its just called MULTIMEDIA NOTEBOOK COMPUTER, with the ID as FMA862. The Bios on startup says SystemSoft Bios for UCM8890 Version 1.01 (2487-10). If anyone can help me out with finding an upgrade to this or an idea of how to get the 233MMX chip to actually run at its full speed, it would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks very much
