Clock Speed had dropped!

Im Puzzled?

This my PC Spec

ASUS V7800 Motherboard
Athlon 3200 xp processor
1 gig Ram
120gig Maxtor SATA Hard Drive
Radeon 9600 Graphics Card
Running Windows XP

When first checked, using the properties screen in "My Computer", it said my processor speed was 1.8gig. It has now dropped to 1.1gig??

Any Ideas

Im puzzled also as the 3200XP should run higher you will need to go into the bios and adjust the fsb to 200,I think you will find it on 100 at the moment
11x100=1100 11x200=2200 11x166=1826
The 3200XP runs at 2.2GHz with a fsb of 200/400

Is your motherboard an Asus A7V600 or A7V880

Sometimes the BIOS to reverts to default settings.
(don't Know why power surges battery glitches?)

You will need to resr several settings in BIOS

FSB certainly And possibly tings like boot order.

Just looked in the BIOS screen and got a bit scared lol

So rather that pretend i know what im doing, thought i would check on here

Which part of the BIOS do i need to change?

is it the DRAM? cos that gives me options of 266mhz,and 400mhz
help please!

This is for the A7V600. click here

The first setting must be manual, if it is then alter the cpu external clock speed to 200/33.

The 880 is a different kettle of here

It looks as if you have to enter it via the jumper free configuration. Select through the A1 overclock tuner. See if you can alter it to 200 from there.

As bsod says, make sure CPU multiplier is on 11 then change A1 overclock tuner to manual then the cpu frequency to 200.
