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?

A:Bios upgrade to 2.12 on T460p locks cpu frequency to lowest when running without battery

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.

A:CPU Frequency

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.

“% of Maximum Frequency” represents the current CPU clock speed as a percent of its rated speed. For example, if you have a 2.8 GHZ CPU and performance monitor indicates 28%, then the CPU is running at 784 MHz.

It read:

hi guys.. i am just confuse with my ram... CPUZ tells me that i have a PC3-8500F RAM w/c has a frequency of 1066 mhz but when i check the memory tab in CPUZ it says that my dram frequency is 399 mhz... What does this mean?

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.

I am not certain why there's a substantial difference for idling CPU frequency between W8.1 and W7. My PC runs both OS in dual-boot mode, controlled by EUFI "F12" key. Other than both OS having it's own SSD drive, the hardware is identical.

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:

The CPU speed/frequency is actually confirmed by the task manager. Is speedstep broken in Windows 8.1, or HWMonitor is not accurate?

Wondering do you have a DSL connection?are your speakers shielded? If it's a DSL connection, contact your DSL provider and ask for an RF filter to be placed on your DSL line. If not, see if changing the placement of your speakers changes the effect. Also make sure that there isn't a source of EMF close to your speakers.

Hey All!,

I've always looked through overclockers.com but I've found TechSpot to be most resourceful for my needs. I love this place!

However, I've run into a basic newbie situation and it burns me I don't know the answer to this.

I have a Soyo P4-RC350 Motherboard. Which supports processors of 400/533/800 FSB Speeds.

I currently have a P4 2.25 GHz (533 FSB Speed).

The board supposedly allowed installation of PC2100, PC2700 and PC3200 NON-Dual (Single) Channel memory. However, per it's guide it states to use 266 or 333MHZ memory with my 533 FSB processor.

I wish to purchase 2 400MHz PC3200 DDR RAM chips. Although, I don't know if my board will allow that with my current processor.

I'd just go the PC2100 or PC2700 it states at 333MHz for this solution, but I've found the chip I wish to purchase (400MHz PC3200) to be cheaper.

Can I run the 400MHz PC3200 on my Soyo P4-RC350 Motherboard with the P4 2.25 GHz (533 FSB) Processor without worrying about anything getting messed up? Or do you all think it's a bad idea?
 

A:CPU FSB and Memory Frequency PLEASE HELP :)

You can run the 400mhz RAM at 333 with no problem. With the FSB at 533 the RAM should automatically run at 333 anyway. Ive found that there isnt any real performance difference between 400 and 333.

Hi guys! First off, im glad to be in this community.

Well, after the past few months i have noticed that my computer has slowed down dramatically even though that i had fortnightly defragmented, virus scanned and cleared my hard drive from unnecessary files. My computer specifications are below:

Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4GHz
4GB Ram
ATI 3650
(This is a laptop btw)

Recently (as of the last couple of weeks) i have been searching for any clues into why my computer was running so slow. That is when i encountered the Intel Processing Identification Utility. With this Intel program it stated that my expected frequency for my cpu is 2.4GHz and my system bus is 1066MHz(correct). However, once is scanned my cpu it said that it's reported frequency is 0.79GHz and my system bus is 531Mhz!!! I was quite outstanded!

However, today im going to clean out the dust from the laptop to see if whether or not that will make a difference (im sure it will for the temperature).

Guys, any suggestions would be great at this time.

Thanks in advance.

Why does my RAM work at cca 320Mhz instead of 800?
Does anyone know?

A:Why is my RAM working on such low frequency?

It looks like that is the default setting. Is this an OEM or custom build PC? What is the make/model of the RAM? Can you download CPU-Z and post a screen shot of the SPD tab of the slots the RAM or in.

With RAM, there is a multiplier of 2, so in reality your RAM speed is/should be around 666 mhz. As you see mine, I'm using my RAM in XMP mode and it showing at 1200 mhz but with the mulitplier it's running at 2400 mhz. You can confirm this in your BIOS.

Most modern RAM stock/default speeds are 800 mhz and you have to adjust (essentially over clock) the RAM in the BIOS to the correct or desired speeds.

The maximum frequency can be found by going into the resource maneger from the task maneger. I know it is below 100% for laptops running in a power saving mode but it should never be belwo 100% for a desktop should it? It's not like im running a ton of processes and my core temps are 25c or below most of the time. Any ideas on why this could be happening and how I could fix it?

Thanks!

Hello, so I have an old mobo in one of my systems that can only apparently support 667mhz and 800mhz ram. Is there any possible way to install 1066mhz ram in there? by overclocking or anything or such?
The motherboard is an MSI P35 Neo. (MS-7360)

Thanks!.
 

A:Motherboard ram frequency ?!

Some DDR2 1066 sticks will probably work, at DDR2 800 speed. Practically no harm possible to be caused if you have some lying around, but do NOT buy anything.

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

Hey guys,

I realize that there has been posts about this in the past. However, from what ive read they were still able to get into windows and mess around with things. Well this was the case the first time around, I was able to update my friends video card drivers that were 3 years out of date. That fixed the issue for about two weeks. The issue cropped up in the first place when my friends son installed Left for Dead 2 on the computer.

Now whenever the computer is turned on and windows vista starts to load it goes straight to the black screen with "Frequency out of range" dancing across the screen. I cant even get to the login screen for vista. I dont have the specs handy but it is an E Machine. I know *shudder* The computer is kinda dirty and I plan to clean it out, and the monitor is using onboard graphics.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Frequency Out of Range

That usually comes up when the refresh rate is too high.

there's an AUTO button or something on the front of the monitor.
change the refresh rate.
Iis it an onboard video or a card? are there any beeps on startup? if so how many?

sounds like the video fault, that is when the refresh rate is to high for the monitor couple things you could try

first
press f8 on boot and select vga mode
the once into the os reset the video card options

second
try another monitor

third
if its a card, swap it out, if its on board put a card in

lastly
reset the bios to defaults check your motherboard manual there is a jumper on the motherboard to do this normally.

My other Computer is Pentium 3, 256 Ram, Graphix card i dont know (but its bad). I recently changed the Screen resolution on my other computer, and right away the screen went black with a "Frequency out of Range" in the middle. I looked in the monitor manual, it said to restart computer, press F8, go into safe mode, change resolution, and restart. When i did that, nothing changed. Mayb i didn't save the settings? Somebody plz help.
 

A:Frequency out of Range

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.

Scorp.
