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.

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.

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 ).

i have an overclocking software (ASUS Turbo V) that says that the DRAM is at 1.9V. is that equivalent to 800 or 1066Mhz?

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.

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.

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.

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?

What's the CPU Vcore?

A:increase my CPU frequency

I think you have an athlon 1700 cpu. Those are supposed to run at 133 / 266 fsb. You have it set correctly now; it should id in the bios during post as the correct processor. Check this and see. If you adjust the fsb higher, you will be overclocking the cpu. In addition you have a via mb; there is no pci / agp lock for the via boards. You will be overclocking your video, hd, and any pci cards as well.

Fan speed is a function of the voltage applied to the fan. The fsb clock has nothing to do with the fan speed. Some mb can control fan speed by temp; ie increasing the fan speed when the system gets hot. I do not think your board has that feature.

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

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!

I just have setup my new motherboard (ASUS A7N8X Deluxe) with Athelon XP 2100+. I set the external CPU frequency at 133Mhz with Multiplier 13X. Because I have 2x 256MB DDR400 (PC 3200) memory I set the memory frequency to 150%. But the output of the memory only shows 200Mhz. Did I setup anything wrong? Do I have to modify anything the maximize my use of DDR400 RAM? Also My memory test shows only 26000KB when I boot it up. Doesn't it have to show about 52000KB because I have two 256MB memory installed? Lost of questions, lots of answers please!!!
 

A:Memory Frequency

I am in the process of this to. I think it would be using a multiplier of times 2. I just set mine to 166 for 333ddr. gave me options of 133 for 266ddr and mine then 200 for 400ddr.

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.

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.

Are all nic cards the same frequency?
 

A:Are all nic cards the same frequency?

If you only have one WAP, all of the clients connecting to it will be on one frequency. OTOH, if you have a lot of clients, you'll probably want more than one WAP, and they'd be on different frequencies.

I have a problem with an Intel P4 CPU Bus Frequency, the processor is 1.9 Ghz/256/400 but It always stop at the BIOS settings whenever I boot the PC. I choose the frequency but it hangs all the time I boot again and the same thing continously. This is the PC I was fixing and was going to install Win XP SP2 to it but discovered it was not booting at all and decided to open the box and see if all the hardware was in working order. The whole PC was full of of dust including the heat sink and I've cleaned the whole PC of dust and it booted until it gave me that frequency boot error and I cannot Install XP.

Please help....

Thanxz
 

A:CPU BUS Frequency Error

Try replacing the CMOS battery on the motherboard.
The battery is probably dead and the Bios is not detecting the hardware properly.

Okay this might sound like a strange question but normally its a simple measure of putting in a new RAM chip when you want to add RAm to your desktop. strangely my new CPU ahs run into some preoblems with adding the RAM.

when I built my PC is january I wanted it to have 2 GB of DDR 2 RAM. however something is dodgy- when I put in two RAM chips into my motherboard it crashses every time without fail I ahve checked the slot configuration for the RAM and it's in the right position. however wen I put in one rAM chip it works fine.

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.

for your info:
motherboard: MSI K9N NEO V3
ram: 2 kingston HYPERX DDR2 !gb
