The problem can be related with a desktop board and processor compatibility issue, is not common to have a 'locked' option under the processor in BIOS, it can be that the desktop board can run your processor at 400 mhz only, I do recommend to contact the desktop board manufacturer for any BIOS settings that you may need to change.
Also, if you need to determine that your processor is properly detected by your desktop board I recommend you to download and the install the Intel(R) processor Identification utilty, you can download this application at the following url:
Thank you very much. I already ran the processor ID utility from Intel and it correctly identifies the processor, and is what showed it was running with a 400MHz FSB, hence my query.
I've got an inquiry at the mbd mfg as well.
