Sounds to me your cpu is not unlocked anymore.
You have to unlock it again i think.
I pressume the cpu runs fine at its stock speed 133 fsb?

Okay ladies and gentlemen, this one has really got me stumped. My
bios froze on me one day and then I had to reset the CMOS to boot up
again. At that poin in time, my cpu clock speed was 146; it had
previously been at 170 for 11 months straight with a 80mm tornado fan
but I decided to underclock it and run it at 146 clock speed.
Temperature has never been a problem; My heatsink and airflow are
huge. Temperatures of my CPU have been around 50 degrees celcius with
both fans and clock speeds. The bios now freezes everytime I try to
up my cpu clock speed from 133 to 146 (146 makes my cpu an even 1800+
in quantum speed). The bios freezes after it shows the cpu and the
quantum speed but it shows the wrong quantum speed. It reads 1600+
but it should really be 1800+ because I changed the clock speed to
146. Also when it freezes, there is no ram count but it shows the
speed of PC2700 (146 CPU clock speed).

I might be mistaken, but shouldn't the display show the processor's ID
string, and therefore still display 1600+ ? I am not that familiar
with the way AMD handles that, though. (Yes, I am sorry, I am an
Is there anything you have done to your VCore, to the BIOS (as in
flashed a new one). What about your PCI bus speeds? If you have a
fixed divider for your PCI clock (one that only changes at the 100,
133, 166 intervalls), 146Mhz host-bus is actually worse than 170.

Just a few random thoughts...
