Why dont my computer start up correctly ?

Question

I have a computer that was made by a friend, and the motherboard is a K7 Triton 400 series 7VAXP Ultra by Gigaby technology. It is a dual bios system. The cpu is a AMD athlon 2000+. However, when i go into the system and check the system properties, it only states that i have 1.26 ghz of memory, it should be above 1.6. I think the problem may be that i have to change the system to pc133, but im not sure how to do it. When i tried to change the cp host clock control, it only let me go up to 132 and when i do change it, the computer does not start up correctly. I know the chip is the actual amd 2000, how do i make it so that the computer will recognize for what it is?, i dont think it is clocking it correctly.

Well it seems to me that you need to add more memory to the motherboard

so when u purchase a Ram chip make sure it is compatible and when placed in the motherboard make sure u put the new on in the first slot.

your computer is not starting up correctly because it does not have sufficient memory to boot up.
