Preferred Solution: CPU running at low frequency.

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.)

Hello all, i made a little update for my computer changing the motherboard, ram and videocard. The motherboard is Asrock G41M-VS3 R2.0 and the RAM is this Corsair Memory.

It is a ddr3 1333mhz ram memory and my motherboard is supporting 1333mhz ddr3 memory, but when i go in BIOS i see the RAM is running only at 400mhz. WHY it is running on so low frequency? I want at least 1066mhz.

How can i increase the frequency? and sorry for my medium quality english.

A:Ram Memory running on low frequency.Why?

You may have to manually adjust BIOS setting to the above specs. Does your CPU support DDR3 1333 MHz RAM?

I have had a small performance issue with my computer for awhile and thought I would ask around to see if anybody knew of a true fix for it. Occasionally, my computer will run much slower than usual--dropping from about 30 fps to 10-15 fps in a game I play. When I check the Resource Monitor, I can see that the processor is only running at 50% maximum frequency.

The first thing I did was check my power options. On high performance, my computer is set to have a minimum frequency of 100%, so I can't figure out why this would happen. It seems the only way to get the frequency to jump back to 100% is to change the power options to balanced/power saver, then unplug the machine, then plug it back in and change the power options back to high performance. Once I do this, I have no further problems for the next 2-3 weeks.

While I've grown accustomed to the process, it gets tedious and doesn't always work the first time. Has anybody heard of this happening before? Am I doing something wrong? Is the hardware screwing up? Is the operating system not working right? Are there better forums to post this question in?

Attached is my DxDiag information, if that is any help. Please let me know if there is any other information you need.

A:CPU only running at 50% maximum frequency

Go to search and type

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.

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 ).

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?

A:RAM Frequency

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'm just guessing.

It simply means that the game is trying to drive the monitor at a higher refresh rate than it can display.

I have a i7 860 desktop (8 gb ram) which tends to freeze on one of the data applications that I run. Using the 'performance monitor' I discovered that the freeze occurs when the 'frequency' goes above 100%. At no point does the cpu utilization exceed 15%.

Several calls to the vendor have failed to resolve the issue or even educate me.

The question I have is what is this 'frequency' and two, why does it cause the application to freeze while the 8 cores are relaxing ?

A:CPU Frequency What is it?

“% 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.

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?

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.

Okay, I'm totally stumped on this. It started few weeks ago, when every morning that I would turn on my computer my monitor would display a signal saying "frequency out of range" I would then manually turn off my pc and turn it on again until an image was displayed. I tried checking the resolution and everything was fine, refresh rate was fine and everything. I have an AMD 6670 and an HD1700 gateway monitor. I already tried updating my drivers and entered in safe mode. Now, the strange thing is, it ONLY happens on mornings. I keep my computer on most of the day, but I've turned it off and on during the day to see if I still received the same message and it works just fine. This doesn't happen when I play games or anything only every morning on startup and I have to reboot until I see an image on my screen after about three tries and then it works fine even if I reboot it. I'm using Windows 7 Professional.
 

A:Frequency out of Range

Instead of rebooting the computer try, unplugging the power cable to the monitor, pressing the power button on the monitor, then plugging it back in and turning on the monitor and see if that works as well.

You also need to list the full and complete specs of the computer. Be sure to include the make and model of the power supply as well; you may have to open the side of the computer to see the sticker on the power supply. Or if its a brand name system list the exact model and any upgraded parts you have.

A friend suggested I check my RAM frequency and how many channnels, but I have no idea how to change/chekc this. My motherboard manual is not helpful at all either. any ideas anyone?

by the way, the RAM chips are perfectly fine. I checked them out on someone elses CPU and they work alright. might be a problem with the motherboard, but I somehow doubt so.

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.

I am running an ASUS P4P800se Mobo with an Intel 3.2gh processor and Windows XPpro sp2. I have 2 512 mb sticks of matched Crucial Ballistics ram and 2 matched 512 mb sticks of Kingston HyperX ram running in dual channel mode at supposedly 400 mhz freq. When I boot up I see that the ram freq. is 320 mhz, dual channel, linear mode. Is this normal? Why isn't it running at 400 mhz? I have been having stop error problems as well but I don't think it's related because the ram has been working fine for weeks, albeit verrry slow to check during boot-up. It's gotten considerably faster lately, (after Bios update) but it still takes a couple of minutes to check "NVram". I will start another thread about the AGP440 stop errors as soon as I am sure that reinstalling the drivers for my Radeon X1600 pro did not fix the problem. So far so good.

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.

I currently have Windows XP pro running on a Dell Vostro 200. I have an up to date Intel graphics media accelerator driver (which I reinstalled to see if that would fix it but didn't.)

I keep getting "Frequency out of range 96.6" when I boot my PC. Not all the time. Usually, if I put my monitor on before I press the power on button on my PC, it doesn't show. But today it did. I hate this cause the PC boots up but the "Frequency out of range" message prevents me from viewing the Desktop so I have to power down the PC by pressing the button and start all over again. Not good for the PC and not good for me.

Situation began when I accidentally selected the incorrect range for my monitor. The "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" was unchecked (which I didn't see till after the fact) and I selected the wrong hertz for my monitor. I have since corrected that but it has not corrected on the system causing this error. I uninstalled and reinstalled the monitor using Device Manager but it didn't fix it. I'm wondering if there is something in the registry that is holding the old setting that I can change.

Thanks for your help.

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.

hello! ive been having some kind of freqeuncy running to my speakers as of late...when i turn my speakers as high as they can go, i hear a low buffered noise of music streaming through my speakers. i unplugged the green cord that plugs into my soundcard in the back of my computer tower. i turned my speakers up all the way to c if it was still there, and it was. i dont have any trojans or malware on my computer because i just got done going through an hjt process and a bunch of scanners, and my computer was cleaned. i would like to kno how i could get rid of this problem, and wat might be causing it. thanks in advance!!

A:Radio Frequency

i too am having the same problem and its annoying to the point whre i can hear it when watching videos etc.

i cant figure out how to fix this.
Im going to give u the same recomendations people on here gave me although they didnt solve my problem.

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.

Apparently, according to my step-mom, DDR2 RAM is produced in different frequencies. How can I tell what Frequency my RAM is, in my PC, so I can buy some more that works with my PC?

Thanks!

A:Question: RAM Frequency?

Go to crucial's site and input your system. It will show all compatible ram.

Another way is to open the case and look. Every ram chip I have seen will have the speed and required voltage on a sticker attached to the ram.

Hi- I don't know if this is exactly the type of service you provide... but I'm just looking for a possible cause to a problem that seems to have the local techs that I've talked to stumped. My Gateway, WIN'98- about two years old... has developed a nasty habit of going black and then giving me a rolling screen that says
OUT OF FREQUENCY
HF 28.0 Hz
UF 62.0 Hz
OPERATING FREQUENCY
HF 30-70 Hz
UF 50-120 Hz
POWER SAVER AFTER
20 SECONDS
Then it counts down the seconds and shuts off. Sometimes if I hit escape I can get back to the desktop. Sometimes I get nothing and can only shut the computer off. It happens on or off line. If you are providing "trouble shooting" technical assistance I would sure appreciate a bit of advice. People who know more than I do... which is everybody seem to think "moniter" but I still dont have a clue. Thanks- Ted [email protected]
 

A:Moniter frequency???

Well, that message means that your monitor is no longer getting a signal from your computer.

This can mean that your computer stopped sending a signal, it can mean that your monitor stopped receiving, or that there is something wrong with the cable from the monitor to the computer.

The first, and easiest, test, is to hook up another monitor (or hook your monitor up to another computer) and see if the problem continues. If it stays with the computer, it is not the monitor...

anyone know what core frequency is? and does anyone know what the difference between Graphics cards -Asus GTX 560 Ti and GTX 560 TOP (except for the cost)? thanks-

A:core frequency?

Core frequency is the clock frequency of your CPU or GPU (memory, both system and videocard, usually runs at its own clock frequency).

As for the two videocards, you can find detailed specs on nVidia's website and just compare them. Differences will probably be in clock speeds, number of shaders/pipelines, and things like that.

I have mp3's recorded in 22 khz, but unfortunately, my
dvd/mp3 player (SONY DVPNS 315) cant read them unless they are
either 32, 44.1 or 48 khz.
How can I convert them without changing pitch or speed dramatically.

This is spoken word stuff so audio quality is not terribly important.
 

A:convert frequency of mp3's

Hiya

Not sure if this will work, as I haven't done them yet, but have a look:
