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.)

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

Then check for errors that happen at the time of the problem.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

“% 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?

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

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

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 I've just finished my first System build and after runnign CPU-Z I found my Frequency on Corsair Vengeance 1866Mhz RAM to be 1333Mhz.

A:RAM frequency Incorrect

The RAM frequency depends on your motherboard chipset. In other words, it doesn't matter if you have 5000Mhz RAM, if the motherboard chipset runs as 1000Mhz, the RAM will run at 1000Mhz.

What is the make and model of your motherboard, and which cpu is installed?

The manual has a jumper for CPU Frequence defaulted at 100Mhz, but can be configured to 133 MHz. I believe that means for the front side bus if I am not mistaken. Anyway, the Duron has a 200 Mhz FSB. Should I set that to 133 or 100 or does it make any difference?
 

A:Should CPU Frequency be 100 Mhz or 133 Mhz with Duron 1.2 Ghz, 200 FSB?

It should be set at 100mhz, that would give you 200mhz fsb you want. Youl could try the 133 to get a FSB of 266...but to some extent that would be overclocking.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Concerning my other thread [ http://www.techsupportforum.com/f10/...se-130315.html ]
I have no booted up my computer, and it took me into BIOS settings and on the right column it said "During the last boot up your system hung for improper frequency combination, your system is now running in safe mode. To optimize system performance and reliability, make sure the frequency combination conforms to specifications of your CPU, DIMN and other connected devices"

The thing that was selected said "CPU External Frequency (mhz) : 133/33"

I'm not sure what this all means, any idea on how to fix it though.

It started up, but when i got onto the logon screen, and clicked my username, the computer just froze again. UGH! So annoying, seeing as i did nothing wrong in the first place.

Edit : Ok it's SLOWLY loading..

Ok guys.. I know many persons asked this question before... But the answers they got didn't help me...

Ok here's what happened to my monitor, I bought myself a 7600GS from FutureShop, like 2 months ago. And I turned on my computer (Today) it told me 'no signal'... Ok, so i decided to try with another screen... So it appears that it still tells me 'no signal'... So, i plugged my screen in another 'hole', so this other 'hole' is a 6100 from Nvidia. So, ok it worked perfectly the only problem was that the resolution was low, low, low, low... I decided to change the resolution but by accident i changed to a resolution that was too high for my monitor. What can i do so it comes back to normal..?? And what's the problem with my 7600GS??

Thanx for the help!

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.

Hiya

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