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.

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 ).

Lets say I buy a q6600 with a FSB of 1066MHZ... Then the ram I buy for best performance should be... ddr2 800 (Pc6200)??? What if I was to overclock the RAM to lets say, 1066, would it work at 1066? I don't even know if this is possible, but can i increase the FSB of the processor?

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.

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.

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.

its actually MT and not mhz but people say mhz and to answer your question your motherboard is slight OC'ing that RAM to 12800(1600) instead of its rated 10600(1333) speed which if its stable is fine. you get your sticks speed by doubling its speed so a 1600 stick runs at 2x800 mhz to give you that speed. its confusing i know. if you look at your memory in cpu-z like i posted below you can get an idea for what your memory supports and what it is at?

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.

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 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.
 

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".

For about the past two weeks now, my CPU has started behaving strangely. I noticed it doing this while gaming, when what should have been perfect performance was kind of choppy. I alt-tabbed out of the game and peeked at SpeedFan, and noticed my temperature not rising above 50c while playing a game that normally shoots it up to around 75c.

Looking at CPU-Z, I see that for whatever reason the Core Voltage keeps randomly changing between 1.0 and 1.3v; this in turn is causing the multiplier to variate between 16-22. While typing this, it was staying at 1.235v, but dropped down to 1.0 when I ran a game just then to see if perhaps it had fixed itself like it seems to randomly do also. Also on that note, CPU-Z used to show my multiplier as "x23 (x23)", but now shows it as: "N (12-25)", N being whatever it's at currently based on the voltage, I assume. I don't know why it's suddenly listing a range of multipliers instead of just x23 as it used to. Also not sure why the range listed extends beyond what I thought was my CPU's maximum, x23. (I've never seen the multiplier go higher than 22 or 23 during all of this, or ever before for that matter.)

As far as I know, no Windows or BIOS settings are causing this, as nothing had been changed when it started happening (other than Windows updates). The only thing I've changed today was turning Turbo Boost off in the BIOS, but that had no effect. I was contemplating turning SpeedStep off also, as it kind of seems like th... Read more

A:CPU frequency fluctuation.

Your bios setting, things like speed step will make a computer do things like this.
It' designed to work that way.
When your computer has less demand the voltages will go down and the multiplier will change. When you computer is ask to do more work it will work in the opposite fashion.

Their are settings in the bios to change all this but it varies from motherboard to motherboard.
It's done for a reason. When you computer doesn't need the extra voltage and therefore the voltage is lowered the computer runs cooler. Under load the higher voltage will raise the temps so you might hear the fans speed up. That will depend on the fans and the temp.

If you don't have special cooling I would leave it set as it is. Changing such things without extra cooling will cause a computer to over heat.

I have this computer to run 4.6 all the time but I got lots of extra cooling.
2 pumps, 2 radiators and 14 fans.

To learn more it will take some time. My post is just touching what can and can not be done in bios.
Open you motherboard manual and go to the bios section and read. Then on ever setting Google it and you will find a explanation of what these thing in the bios do.

I just had a power blackout a few minutes ago and my computer shut off. I turn my computer back on when the citie's power comes back on, and my screen has a lot of white squares that keep flashing. Then the monitor goes black and I get a message saying that the frequency is too high. The message is from the monitor, not the computer; I never even get into windows. Drivers are updated, RAM, LCD, CPU, PSU, GPU, HDD, and everything have been tested on a different setup, and they all work flawlessly. So are the visual artifacts due to a shorted MB?
 

A:Video Frequency

Have you tried hitting F5/F8 and try booting into safe mode and selecting VGA mode?

if you can then connect another monitor to see if it is your Mainboard or graphics Card.

If you get into Vga mode then you can check adapter refresh frequency and lower it.

​hi every bodyi have a problem with my pc and i wish you will help me


when i connect the monitor to the built in video there is no problem , but when i connect the monitor to (nvidia gtx 465) the windows did not open and write "windows preparing automatic repair" after that, the computer restart time after time

how can i solve this problem
i need help

A:restarting frequency

it may be because your hardware has become quite old & even compatibility issues. check if the card works on other PC good.also did this happen the first you installed the card,if not boot with the integrated card, then, in device manager check for a warning yellow blip for the Nvidia drivers. if there is one, you need to update your card drivers.

Hi all,

i recently had a huge problem on Win7 with consistent pop ups of the 'blue screen of death'
(didn't MS say win 7 will not have this issue??)
anyhow i automatically assumed it was a problem with the ram & purchased a new Transcend 800mhz 2GB DDR2 module.
Previously i had TWO modules of 1GB 667mhz DDR2 ram.

Obvious, it turned out that the problem was not with the ram as i continued having the blue screen even after ram replacement.
The Motherboard i have is the XFX nforce 650i which supports both frequencies.

so is it ok to use these 3 modules of ram?

First of all:

Intel Pentium 4 (Prescott 640) @ 3.2Ghz (775LGA) (HT)
Core Speed (3192.5Mhz)
Multiplier (16 x 200 Mhz)
Bus Speed (800Mhz)
Rated Bus Speed (799.1Mhz)
L1 (16KBytes-64byte line size) (8-way)
L2 (2048KBytes-64-bye line size) (8-way)

Intel i925X - 82801FB (ICH6)
Memory type (DDR2) (Installed in Dual Channel mode)
Dell Dimension 8400 - BIOS v. AO9

WinXP (SP2) - DirectX (9.0c)

Memory size (1024 MBytes) (x2 PC2-4300-533mhz-512 Mbytes)
Memory frequency running @ (266.0Mhz) (3:4)
CAS# Latency (4 clocks)
RAS to CAS (4 clocks)
RAS Precharge (4 clocks)
Cycle time (12 clocks)​
Ok, so basically im not looking for a specific answer. However im really confused.
Lets break it down:

My fsb is 800mhz (Divided by 4) ITS ACTUALLY 200mhz
My processor speed runs @ 3200mhz (16 is the multiplier) (Hence, 16x200 = 3200)
My memory (522mhz) runs @ 266Mhz (divided by 2) (555 / 2 = 266)

So:

FSB = 200 MhzClick to expand...


Memory = 266 MhzClick to expand...


Hence = 4:5 RATIO Click to expand...

Now, i thought that the memory had to run AT or at LOWER speeds than the actual FSB which in my case is: memory= 266mhz and FSB= 200 mhz. I did some "research", and I read that this relationship of the memory being larger than the fsb was ok. It was called something like "unsynchronised".

So if I can run my memory at higher speeds (than the FSB) why cant i just buy an 800mhz memory and make it run at 400mhz? (I KNOW IT WOULDNT work, but why?) Is there like a... Read more

Hi everybody

I have a problem with my NVIDIA NVG18A graphic card with 64 MB. I bought it very recently and fixed it in my PC with configuration of 512MB RAM, 933 MHz CPU, 30 GB hard disk and P3 processor running on Windows XP.

This graphic card has VGA Out, S-Video Out and AV Out. I connected my desktop monitor with VGA Out port and my TV with AV Out port. Till now, every thing went fine.

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 don’t know what to do to avoid this situation. I did not install any drives related to graphic card. The moment I started first time after fixing the graphic card, XP identified my new hardware. Any help in this regard is greatly apprecia... Read more

A:Frequency Out of Range

Hi,

Boot your pc into safe mode by pressing the f8 key as it starts.
When it has booted, right click on the desktop & choose properties, click the settings tab.
Now change the colours to medium, (or less) & the resolution to 800X600 (or less).
Restart your pc & set the colours & resolution to the ones you want to use.
Restart again to make sure all is ok.

hope this helps

Rob
