Sounds like the CPU configuration in the BIOS reset itself to default values. Thatīs no big deal, it happens all the time. Find the "Clear CMOS Jumper" in case something goes wrong, learn the most important BIOS options and configure it correctly.

The CPU speed is usually set as
Frontside Bus (FSB) * multiplyer
for example 200 * 10 = 2000 MHz = 2GHz
or 166* 11 = 1826 MHz ~ 1.8 GHz

Sounds like your CPU is running at 100 MHz FSB instead of 166.

Sounds like a good time to learn about overclocking. An XP2500+ is great for this.
