Solved processor running at 1.2 Ghz instead of 2.4Gh

July 22, 2011 at 07:20:21
Specs: Windows 7, 1.5GB ram
I was using my pc at 2.4Ghz before i change to anew p4 mother board.
at that stage it was running at 12 x 200 fsb.
after i changed to my new one i couldn't change the fsb to 200
its running at 12 x 100.
here is my specs

I've narrowed it down to this:

CPU - Pentium 4 2.40GHz/800MHz FSB Northwood core w/HT:

http://ark.intel.com/products/27493

Motherboard - it appears it's one of the 1st two listed at the following Zida webpage:

http://www.vidadesign.com/zida/eng/...

RAM - 1.5GB (512MB + 1GB) DDR266 at 133MHz

Video - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 AGP (running at 4X AGP)

Your new motherboard doesn't support 800MHz FSB CPUs therefore there is no way to get your CPU to run at the correct speed. I don't know why you switched boards, but it looks like you downgraded to an even older model than you had. Your CPU supports HyperThreading (HT) - that's why 2 cores are detected, even though there is only one.

You obviously haven't set it up correctly - either a BIOS setting or a jumper on the motherboard needs to be reconfigured. And it would help if you used the correct terminology. Ratio, frequency, & FSB all mean different things.

Your CPU frequency is supposed to be 200MHz, meaning the FSB would be 800MHz. You have the frequency set at 100MHz, meaning the FSB is 400MHz. You didn't bother to list the model number of the board so it's impossible to dig up the specs or the manual to see how to change those settings.

Did you make sure your CPU is supported? And what was the point changing the board? Based on the BIOS info it appears the "new" board is almost 9 yrs old so what did you gain? Was the old board bad?

"here is my specs"

Those are not your complete specs. Specs would be the make/model of the motherboard, make/model of the CPU, type/speed/amount of RAM, make/model of graphics, make/model/wattage of power supply, make/model/capacity of hard drive, etc.

Like I said in my other response, it sounds like you downgraded to an older motherboard that doesn't support your CPU. What did you do with the ASRock board? I suggest you switch back.

So u switched the board because ati video card has ddr2 for video memory?
If there's agp video card that use gddr5 or ddr3 your board will support it. I suggest u switch back ASAP.

"i bough a 1gb ram and the vga card ati mobility radeon agp 4x 512mb which is ddr 2

Apparently you don't understand how these things work. The system memory & graphics memory have nothing to do with one another, you can mix or match without any problems. The ASRock board will support a video card that uses SDR, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, or DDR5. I don't know who told you differently but they were 100% wrong.

It's time to be blunt - the Zida board you bought is an outdated piece of crap. It's almost 10 years old, only supports 4X AGP, & does NOT support your CPU. And why would you even buy a video card based on a laptop (Mobility) GPU? The Radeon HD 3650 is NOT a good gaming card anyway. Sorry, but you made an all around bad purchase. It's seems you had enough money to travel 1/2 way across the world to visit London, so why did you "cheap out" when you bought the board & video card?

The ASRock board is only a few years old & I'm sure supports PCI-express graphics cards, plus it DOES support your CPU. Once again, I suggest you switch back to the ASRock board. Sell the crappy Zida board for $10-20 (that's all it's worth) & see if you can find a sucker to buy the weak Mobility based video card. Then use that money to buy decent gaming video card for the ASRock board. And remember, the type of memory used by the card has nothing to do with the board. Decent gaming cards use DDR3 or DDR5 at 128-bit or better, so keep that in mind when shopping for a new card. Cards that use DDR2 memory are slower & cards that use 64-bit memory are NOT gaming cards. This article should help you to make a good choice:

If you can't find the hardware you want locally, order it online. It's usually much cheaper plus you'll have a much better selection.
