CPU Frequency in BIOS

Q: CPU Frequency in BIOS

I have a a GeFORCE6100SM-M HT2000 motherboard, an AMD Sempron 3400+ processor, and two sticks of 1 GB DDR2 800 MHz ram. When I go into BIOS, it says that my "CPU Frequency" is 200 MHz. I was wondering if this is the same thing as my processor's clock speed. It allows me to increase this number, but only in very small increments between 200 and 300 MHz. Obviously, these numbers are far too low for my processor, so I was wondering if there is something that I need to do on my motherboard like putting those little plastic caps on the pins or perhaps changing a different option in BIOS. I did not see anything in my manual about the little plastic caps though. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: CPU Frequency in BIOS

That should be your BUS speed, not your clock speed.

Download CPU-Z and check your Bus Speed and your multiplier.

200MHz should be nowhere near your clock speed, and the only reason you should even change that number in BIOS would be in an attempt of overclock your CPU. I'm sure you do need jumpers etc. for doing that.

You can also check your clock speed by right clicking "My Computer" then clicking "Properties".

I was at Goodwill yesterday and I found an ECS K7SEM v1.0 motherboard for $6. Assuming that it works, I wouldn't mind getting an AMD cpu and some RAM to get this going as a multi-purpose additional computer for my apartment.

The original intent of this board was for AMD processor running at either 100Mhz or 133Mhz FSB. The manual for the motherboard says that the RAM speed cannot be less than the processor FSB. For example: according to the manual, if the CPU has a FSB of 133Mhz, then PC133 RAM must be used and PC100 RAM cannot be used. If a CPU has a FSB of 100Mhz, then either PC100 or PC133 RAM can be used, but not PC66.

This manual was printed in 2001. However, in 2002/2003, a new BIOS upgrade was created for this board to allow support for Athalon XP 2100 and 2200 processors.

I was looking at an AMD XP processor at newegg and realized that the FSB is 266Mhz, according to the specs. I always get confused about FSB ratings. Are you supposed to divide this number by 2 with AMD chips? Like if the FSB is 266Mhz, should I use PC133 RAM to be compliant with the statement in the manual about using RAM that matches or exceeds the CPU FSB?

Another question I had is related to the new BIOS update that supports the newer processors. Would I need to use an old processor in order to update the BIOS before I can use the XP processor? Or will I be able to update to the XP supporting BIOS with the XP processor already in the socket?

If everything goes smooth... Read more

A:CPU FSB frequency and RAM frequency agreement, and BIOS CPU support.

When an AthlonXP is advertised with a 266mhz FSB, it is actually running at 133mhz but its DDR nature makes it run as fast as a 266mhz FSB. Any 266mhz AthlonXP should work on that board provided it isn't above the 2200+ ( 1800mhz ).

My PC has been crashing for some time now and I have been chalking it up to Vista, until today it beeped at me and gave me a black screen saying I had to reset my memory frequency in bios. I compared it to what my RAM says, and the volts are correct, but my RAM says 7 - 7 - 7 @ 1.9v, when I checked the frequency, my bios is set at 8 - 8 - 8 - 28. I could change the 8s to 7s but I have no idea what to change the tRAS to(currently set at 28). Also, should command per clock still be set to 2T? I am using 2 sticks of 2 gig RAM if that makes a difference.

Well, the title sums it up really...

I OC'ed my AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE to it's 16x multiplier, at a comfy 3.2 GHz, just to test things and familiarize myself with it's voltages. After I set the thing to 16x and rebooted, I checked windows to see if it actually showed 3200 MHz, but it didn't. I then ran CPU-Z and Core Temp, both of which showed exactly 3200 MHz and a 16x multiplier.

My question: Is this just a bug in windows and is my CPU actually 3,2 GHz, or is there something else going on?

The fact that CPU-Z shows higher, changing, voltages (BIOS Core Voltage is set to 'Auto') means to me that windows is doing it wrong. But I might be completely mistaking.

Also, on a sidenote, I wondered if the popular 'Can You Run It' webservice shows realtime CPU clock speed, or just the stock value. Because it's showing the stock value for me, but I thought it might just be getting that from where windows is getting it (the wrong location I hope that is).

Any assistance on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. After upgrading BIOS to 2.12 the CPU frequency is locked to the lowest possible (disregarding BIOS settings). Plugging in the battery makes it work again.For the sake of prolonging my battery life I ususally run without it when safely docked at home.Anyone else experiencing this? I assume it's a bug?

It sounds like a bug might have been fixed.  I would expect it to slow down if you had just a battery (no A/C) or just A/C (no battery).  The charhing circuity won't "cook" the battery.  It will stop charging when it is fully charged.

See the DDR table at http://hallicino.hubpages.com/hub/DDR1__DDR2__DDR3_Navigating_The_RAM_Maze .

I don't use CPUZ so I can't interpret where it got that 399/400 number. That usually applies to DDR2 modules, as you can see...or your RAM is underclocked currently so that it performs like DDR3-800. Memory Clock: 100 MHz. Bus Clock: 400 MHz. Data Transfers/Sec.: 800,000,000. Module Name: PC3-6400.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

It sounds to me like your bios has been reset to the default settings, which will mean your fsb is probably set to 100mhz.

You need to go into your bios, and select the advanced tab, and then the advanced chipset configuration.

you will need to set the cpu frequency(fsb) to what ever your cpu should run at, I.E it will either be 133mhz/166mhz/200mhz depending on your cpu.

You can check your cpu specs at the AMD website.http://139.95.253.213/SRVS/CGI-BIN/...217292174,K=9272,Sxi=6,RESTART,DTree=OBJ(2132) Click on processor specs, followed by your type of cpu.

Both OS used HWMonitor, v1.27.0, initially just to see the CPU temperature that lead me to the CPU frequency differences.

The HWMonitor for Windows 7 shows this:

The same for Windows 8.1 shows this:

And no, there isn't anything pegging the CPU, W8.1 task manager shows low CPU utilization around at the time the HWMonitor image had been captured:

Do you say "it appears pc3 10600s" because you personally opened the case and read that off the sticks?

What brand and model do you have right now?

DDR stands for "double data rate"; so it is 667*2=1333.

DDR3 1333 can be designated as PC3 10600 or PC3 10666. A few manufacturer's use the PC3 10700 designation, but that is less common.

You could also go to Crucial.com and let its configurator sniff your PC. It will make recommendations for compatible RAM.

Have you looked at the compatible memory list at the motherboard manufacturer's web site? You don't have to stick with what's listed, but those listed should be compatible for sure.

It's generally recommended to match all sticks exactly (brand, model, size, voltage, etc), but you can often get away with not doing that.

Stupid question perhaps:

Just built my first custom PC a week ago, running great. But the memory I bought (512Mb Kingston DDR pc2700) says 333Mhz on the pkg, however the default setting or whatever is 266mhz. Is it perfectly safe for me to up the memory frequency to 333mhz in the BIOS or am I confusing that with something else?
 

A:Memory frequency....

Congrats on your first pc build. Glad to hear everything's running fine.

The memory frequency and cpu frequency are 2 different frequencies.
The PC2700 memory is rated to run up to 333mhz (166mhz x2)
but the default frequency in the bios is 266mhz (133 x2) since the default FSB is 133MHz and your cpu/memory ratio is 1:1.

You most certainly should be able to run your memory at 333mhz as long as your motherboard bios has that option.

There are 2 ways for you to overclock your memory through your bios. The first and most common way is for you to increase your FSB to 166mhz w/ a cpu/memory ratio of 1:1.

There also might be an option in your bios that gives you a cpu/memory ratio of 3:4 or 4:5.

Before you start overclocking your cpu and memory, you might want to check out www.overclockers.com and do some research or ask a few questions. We will be most willing to help you get started.

Yeah, try it again.....save them again, see if it works (usually just clicking 'ok' saves settings...but you might need to confirm the resolution change, otherwise it might change back...depepnds on the setup).

If that doesn''t work, maybe you can use your other monitor, which probably had a higher rate, and then set it lowerr from a normal boot.

Hello All,

This is my first post but I have used this site to solve many of my problems before.

I have a RAM query, and even though I keep searching for info I get very lost in the details so I was hoping someone here could help me out.

I recently added 2 x 512mb RAM sticks to my motherboard, hoping to increase performance. There were already 2 x 512mb sticks installed. When only 2 are installed PCU-Z tells me the RAM runs at 200MHz, but when I add the other 2 they only run at 159.6MHz. I have checked the BIOS setup and it tells me the RAM is running at 333MHz.

So can I increase this to 400MHz? It does not allow me to change it in the BIOS setup. I have tried searching for the answer in the motherboard manual but havent had any luck - it just says that I can check the frequency, doesn't say anything about changing it. The BIOS setup also does not tell me the FSB (which PCU-Z tells me is 5:4).

According to Triple6 with reference to another user "4 DIMMS is your problem. Depending on the Stepping of your CPU it can restrict 4 sticks to running at 333Mhz instead of 400Mhz". Is this the case for my CPU? If so, could I buy 2 1Gb DDR 400 sticks and take out all the 512 sticks to allow the RAM to run at 400MHz? And if so again, would this increase performance other than marginally?

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks very much

I just bought 2x1gb dual channel ddr2-6400 ram. 4-4-4-12-1T 800mhz

I checked it in CPUZ latest version 1.41 and it says my memory is running at 400mhz.

Is this just a ddr2 thing where i multiply the frequency by two for some reason and leave it at 400 or did i make a mistake somewhere in the bios. In the bios it says 800freq. Maybe its just cpu z's way of doing things since some of the info it gives me is quite weird.

System specs that are relevant
e6300 not overclocked
evga 680i mobo
2x1gb corsair xms2 6400c4

The memory is sli ready so I enabled sli ready memory and set it to max within the bios.

All the timings are correct and ram is running at 2.1 voltage.

should i disregard what cpuz is telling me, interpret it differently or change something in the bios.

thank you

Hello people. I'm a bit confused about my ram frequency. I have 2GB DDR2/800Mhz ram memory,but when I go in CPU-Z i got this:
It says that the memory is working on 400 MHz. Also another print from Everest.
I haven't changed something. Why the memory is working on 400Mhz?

Thanks in advance. Boshko.

A:Question about RAM frequency

Looks OK to me. It's DDR ram, which stands for Double Data Rate. Double 400 and you have 800.

So I was playing Counter-Strike, and was messing around with the resolutions on the game. I forgot which resolution I switched to; it was some where around the 7XX by XXX. Anyways, after I changed to that resolution my monitor went black screen and gave me a message saying, "Frequency Out Of Range". Even though it's black screened I can still move the mouse around and here the sound effects but I can't see anything. I'm pretty sure that it's the resolution I changed to because my video card (GeForce 7900 GT) doesn't support that resolution. Anyways if any one of you guys could help me out, that would be nice.
 

A:Frequency Out Of Range

Hey, NVM I fixed the problem already. I had to run it in windows mode. Alt+Enter doesn't work in game, you have to manually set it in game. However, reading other threads I found out how to run a game window mode. So here's what I did:

1) Right click Counter-Strike desktop shortcut
2) Properties
3) It should say: ["C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 10] add a -window to the end of that statement.
4) It should then say: ["C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 10 -window]
5) Run the game, and it should run in window mode.

So after I ran it, I just changed back the resolution and problem fixed.

Yes, the infamous "Frequency Over Range" problem. Every time I try and launch a game of UnrealTournament 2004, I get that message. I have tried adjusting the refresh rate, so that seems to be unlikely the problem. I even tried changing the game to 256 Bit Colors, and it still did not work.

I have an Nvidia 7800 GS AGP card, and an AMD Athlon 2.0 GHz 3000+ Processor. I have updated all the drivers. My Monitor is a ViewSonic E-90 19 Inch CRT.

If you have suggestions, or the solution, please let me know.
 

A:UT 2k4 Frequency Over Range

This can either be 2 things, your selecting a resolution/refresh rate your moniter does not support or its the nVidia problem, try these fixes

go to the nVidia display control panel and into the Display Mode Timing tab. There is a box near the bottom that says "Enable doublescan for lower resolution modes", unselect that and try to play UT, if that doesnt work try this

Download Refresh Force

first try setting your moniter to 85Hz and if that doesnt work try the repopulate command, it will instantly select the highest refresh rate your moniter supports and set it to that.

Hope it works for you.

im playin tf2 with my new nvidia 7600 graphics card but when i tried to get on the screen goes black and a box appears and it says out of frequency and i cant see anything i can hear but i cant see anything from the game
 

A:what does out of frequency means?

The box is most like being created by your monitor saying that it can not support the operating frequency of the video signal being fed to it by the graphics card.

If the monitor only displays that message when you try the one game, the game may be adjusting the graphics card to settings that are not supported by the card.

I have a Gateway Windows XP computer w/Intel Core 2 When I first got my computer I loaded all of my games into it and the only game that would not run was Sid Meier's Civilation III. I can play Sims (all packages) and Sims II...as well as Age of Empires and Age of Mythology.
I couldn't figure out what was wrong. The game loaded successfully - started the visual opening.....then the screen went blank and a blue rectangular box said "Frequency Out of Range". I have many games much more sophisticated then CIV III....that all work well! HELP!!!

 

A:Frequency Out of Range

The refresh rate on CIV III is set to high. Start the game in safemode and reset the refresh rate.

Heya

I have this online game that I play(Asheron's Call) and I've played it for years on the same monitor(Gateway EV700)

My motherboard is Canyon, and my Graphics Driver is Intel (R) Extreme and I'm using Windows XP Professional

Recently I had to format the computer and completely wipe everything and start from scratch.When I got the computer working again I reinstalled all the necessities(Internet Connection, Asheron's Call, Anti-Virus etc) but I forgot to install the Drivers.When I clicked on Asheron's Call(the game) to play it a black screen came up but instead of it displaying the game it displayed a small turquise box with a purple box inside it.

It read:

Out of Frequency

HF: 75.2KHz
VF: 75.0Hz

Operating Frequency
HF: 30(-)70 KHz
VF: 50(-)160Hz

Power save after 20 seconds.(this counts down to 0, unless I minimize the game, in which case the box disappears until i maximize the game again, in which case the countdown re-starts.If I let the timer run out, the green light on my monitor turns orange, and the screen goes on standby or whatever.then I have to turn off the monitor and turn it back on)
I talked to a friend of mine who said I should install my Graphics Driver(I hadn't done this yet) so I used the motherboard CD to install the Graphics Driver, and the game worked fine.

Now today when I try and play the game, I'm getting this Out of Frequency message again.Can somebody help me please?

I'm using True Color 1024x768 ... Read more
