|Hello, I have noticed over the last couple of weeks that my computer has been running slow. Today when I turned it on I noticed that the processor was detecting as a "Pentium 4 2.00 GHz (133x15)." After rebooting twice I let Windows load and ram CPU-Z. It detected my CPU as a "Pentium 4 531 3.00 GHz" as the processor type but the core speed was at 1.988 GHz. I cleared the CMOS, and checked to make sure there was no under clocking done.|
The odd part is that the BIOS is registering as supporting DDR-400 ram without any over clocking. My motherboard only natively supports DDR-266 without any over clocking. (I had OC'd my motherboard ram timings to run at the speed of my ram).
My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-8I915PL-G rev 2.1 - BIOS revision F4,
My processor is an Intel Pentium 4 HT (531) 3.00 GHz and my ram is
a 512 Mb. Kingston PC-3200 chip and a 512 Mb. chip of Micron PC-3200 ram.
Pentium 4s - The processors for the rest of us.
