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.

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 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?

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.

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.

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.

When I switch on the PC, after Windows XP logo comes in my monitor, “Frequency Out of Range” message is coming in my monitor . It is very funny that some times it works fine. I mean when I start my PC, some times I will not see this error on my monitor. Monitor displays “Welcome” screen of windows XP and then desktop appears but some times it says “Frequency Out of Range”. If I see this message on my monitor, what I do is forcefully shut down the system by holding the START key on my CPU for some time. Then restart PC again. Then it is my luck. Some times, desktop appears with out any problem or if not lucky enough then again “Frequency Out of Range”. Repeat the same process of “shut down – restart” (some times 6 to 7 times ) until I see my desktop in my monitor. But as I mentioned already, it is not always. Some times it starts perfectly.

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

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.

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
http://www.pagehosting.co.uk/rf/

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.

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.

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?

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

Hope someone can help me?
My computer has been working prefectly but recently it has developed a fault when I open windows media centre and click, the screen turns black and I get a box saying frequency out of range.

I have also noticed that my resolution reminder notice keeps appearing at random even when I go into the monitor menu and disable

Thanks in advance

I have an excel work sheet that uses colors in a matrix of people and skills they posses.

along the y axis would be the people, along the x axis would be the skill.

i am denoting colors, green=skilled, blue=needs refreshment, red=not trained.

I need to tabulate how many skills each person has.

Is there a way to be able to count the number of times a color, (i.e green) box occurs in a row/column?

I have some mp3/wav sounds and i want to convert them in high frequency.
So i need a high frequency software.
Any idea?

A:high frequency

Are you trying to convert from 44,100Hz to 96,000Hz ?

Why are you trying to convert anyway? You're final result will only be as good as the native file (like converting an mp3 to Wav)

i just changed the memory in my 845GV-MLV mobo from two DDR 256 to two
DDR 333 512 it works fine but when booting up the memory frequency still says 266 is there somthing i need to change, the BIOS is set to AUTO
 

A:memory frequency for 266 not 333 ?

Your mobo has a 533MHz FSB, so the correct speed is DDR266.

I just bought a AMD 6000+ Athlon, but it shows only 3ghz in windows and other third party system-info programs. After looking around in google for the solution i found that your suppose to change the CPU frequency. By default it was already set at 200 which is the minimum, the maximum you can put is 400. But if i put anything above 225 my computer doesn't start up properly. Putting the frequency to 225 increase the CPU to 3.25ghz but this is not enough!!!
 

A:CPU frequency problem

The 6000+ is supposed to run at 3Ghz.

What were you hoping for?

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.

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.

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. You can use the TSG Info tool to fill in your missing computer information in your user profile as well: http://forums.techguy.org/7586892-post1.html

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.
