How do I Increase BUS Speed

  Will 14:53 21 Dec 2011

I have upgraded my desktop with a new CPU and Graphics card. Having used Belarc Advisor I see my BUS spead is 200Mhz I think it should be alot more thatn this... am I right and is so how do I chnage the BUS speed? Operating System System Model Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600) MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL CO.,LTD MS-7519 1.0 3.20 gigahertz Intel Pentium Dual core E5800 2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache Board: MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL MS-7519 1.0 Bus Clock: 200 megahertz BIOS: American Megatrends Inc.

If you mean the Bus Clock: 100 megahertz under the main circuit board heading in Belarc, then that is correct.You can read this, Explanation but I do not think you will be any the wiser.

One thing I will say is that your RAM is in the wrong slots. Is this your board?MOBO. Your RAM should either be in slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 your manual should tell you.

Chronos thanks for that ... I was wondering if that was correct after I had spotted it when I did the Belarc run.... The 4 slots are filled ? I am going to deal with that now and see if I can get the right slots. I think this was something to do with the different BUS speeds of the RAM as well. Back in 20 minutes :-)

If you installed a Nvidia graphics card, download (from Nvidia site) NTUNE, this will check your system (after you give permission) and run a system tune up. This is a free program and part of the Nvidia support system.

Terry thanls for the tip but it looks like it is over 6 years old(2005) and doesn't seem to be a vailable??? I have sorted the RAM out and have 4 gigs available now. The Ram bus is 5600... just expect the motherboard to be running faster?
