hi there, ive just done a reformat of my xp pc as i was having quiet a few problems with it,the speed is 1.8ghz but i only get 1,26ghz & the pc will not start at 1.8ghz,what can i do to get it to work at the faster speed,ive been into the bios & tryed to change it but the pc will not start,normally when ive reformat it start at 1.8ghz,why will it not start?
If its an amd CPU like mine, and cool n quiet is enabled, then your cpu will run at different speeds depending on if you are using it or not. It gets treated like a mobile CPU in a laptop. Have you set the BIOS to default settings?
the pc has always been running at 1.8ghz but recently it change on it own to 1.2ghz & when i reformat the pc in the past its always gone to 1.8ghz so why is it at 1.2ghz is it windows that is stopping it all what,the pc spec is as follows mesh matrix AMD Athlon 1900+ti5 with quantispeed,geforce 3 Ti 500 graphics,512mb high performance DDR,80gb udma-133 ( 7200 rpm )with 2mb buffer,yes the bios has been set to default
