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 smoothly and I have some compatible old RAM laying around, I might be able to build this entire system for under $100! I am a little worried though about why this motherboard was at Goodwill, and what might have happened to it before and after it got there. Without having turned it on, it at least looks like it's in great condition. Some of the jumper settings are wrong, but that can easily be fixed. If this works, it might be the 2nd coolest thing I've ever gotten at Goodwill, falling just shy of Herb Alpert's Whipped Cream LP.
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.)
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 ).Read other 1 answers

I have a a GeFORCE6100SM-M HT2000 motherboard, an AMD Sempron 3400+ processor, and two sticks of 1 GB DDR2 800 MHz ram. When I go into BIOS, it says that my "CPU Frequency" is 200 MHz. 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.
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".
i have recently upgrade my processor from a intel pentium d 950 to a intel core 2 duo e8400.
i have a ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard which the E8400 is compatible with and seems to restrict the frequency of the processor from 3.0ghz which it should be running to 2.0ghz, has anyone got any advice on this matter?
You might need a BIOS update. Have you checked with Asus?
My PC has been crashing for some time now and I have been chalking it up to Vista, until today it beeped at me and gave me a black screen saying I had to reset my memory frequency in bios. I compared it to what my RAM says, and the volts are correct, but my RAM says 7 - 7 - 7 @ 1.9v, when I checked the frequency, my bios is set at 8 - 8 - 8 - 28. I could change the 8s to 7s but I have no idea what to change the tRAS to(currently set at 28). Also, should command per clock still be set to 2T? I am using 2 sticks of 2 gig RAM if that makes a difference.

Well, the title sums it up really...
I OC'ed my AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE to it's 16x multiplier, at a comfy 3.2 GHz, just to test things and familiarize myself with it's voltages. After I set the thing to 16x and rebooted, I checked windows to see if it actually showed 3200 MHz, but it didn't. I then ran CPU-Z and Core Temp, both of which showed exactly 3200 MHz and a 16x multiplier.
My question: Is this just a bug in windows and is my CPU actually 3,2 GHz, or is there something else going on?
The fact that CPU-Z shows higher, changing, voltages (BIOS Core Voltage is set to 'Auto') means to me that windows is doing it wrong. But I might be completely mistaking.
Also, on a sidenote, I wondered if the popular 'Can You Run It' webservice shows realtime CPU clock speed, or just the stock value. Because it's showing the stock value for me, but I thought it might just be getting that from where windows is getting it (the wrong location I hope that is).
Any assistance on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
CPU-Z is more accurate then windows with these things, i would say if both it and the bios says you have then windows isn't reading it properly
I need to change the multiplier in the voltage/frequency option in bios. But I can only change FSB, I dont know how to change multiplier. My board is MSI PT8 Neo LSR (Intel)Socket 478, (I really dont think it is necessary to mention all this). Reason I need to do this is that my Pc is heating up, I have to lower it.

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?
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.Read other 1 answers
Yeah I am not to familiar with this, and I'm sure any one of you could answer me.

Hi everyone, Im having a slight problem and im sure im overlooking something simple. I was getting a message on startup that IDE hd could not be found. So i went into bios and looked around, didnt see anything unusual so i set it to default settings. Well you guessed it, I needed a new HD. The problem is that after i put the ne HD in and go to properties on my computer. It is saying that my 2.2 gig amd is a 1.01 gig. Ive changed this in bios with other asus mobo's but i cant seem to find where to change it in this one. The mobo is a asus A7N8X deluxe. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If ive left out any info that is needed please let me know. Thanks in advance for your help..
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://18.104.22.168/SRVS/CGI-BIN/...217292174,K=9272,Sxi=6,RESTART,DTree=OBJ(2132) Click on processor specs, followed by your type of cpu.

my celeron dual core fluctuates between 1.6 ghz and 1.2 ghz, depending on load. is this supposed to happen? sometimes it goes back and forth many times per minute. thanks
When the processor has different loads on it, depending on how intensive the load is, it will fluctuate the rate or frequency depending so.

When I turned on my monitor a dialogue box comes up that say 'out of frequency' then it started counting down from 20 to 0 and went blank but the power was still on . All I get is a black screen, no desktop.
One of the buttons at the bottom of your monitor will allow you to adjust the frequency of the monitor. I'm afraid it may be a case of playing around a bit until you get it right
Maybe it was like this before, but if so, I must not have used the right means of monitoring, because now using CoreTemp or AMD Overdrive, I've noticed that even though my Phenom II x6 1090T is rated at 3.1GHz, it varies between .8 - 3.2GHz, depending on it activity. Shouldn't a CPU's frequency remain constant regardless?

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?

The rest is auto.
My specs are:
Athlon XP 2400
512 DDR PC 2700
I cannot get out of BIOS, every time I save and exit, it will not reboot. I have to restart and it sends me back to BIOS with the problem. I am not sure what to do about this.

I have this online game that I play(Asheron's Call) and I've played it for years on the same monitor(Gateway EV700)

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.
Out of Frequency
HF: 30(-)70 KHz
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)

It simply means that the game is trying to drive the monitor at a higher refresh rate than it can display.
The frequency error message comes from the monitor, not from the PC.

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?
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.
What kind of advantages would I get if I upped the AGP Frequency in the BIOS? I know it should be 66mhz but what would happen if I upped it a little? Would I get better performance?
I accidentally set mine to 83mhz and got an extra 300pts in 3dMark 03. But you risk damaginf the card.
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 ?
Any insight is most appreciated and thanks.
“% 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.
Here is a decent article that explains how performance monitor works: http://blogs.technet.com/b/winserve...cpu-utilization-for-performance-analysis.aspx
i bought 2x2Gb 1066Mhz memory modules from Kingston that are compatible with my Asus M4A78-E motherboard.
i have an overclocking software (ASUS Turbo V) that says that the DRAM is at 1.9V. is that equivalent to 800 or 1066Mhz?
if its at 800Mhz should i raise it to 2.1V to get it working at 1066Mhz?
Will there be a noticeable difference?

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 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
(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.

The issue cropped up in the first place when my friends son installed Left for Dead 2 on the computer.

That usually comes up when the refresh rate is too high.
there's an AUTO button or something on the front of the monitor.
change the refresh rate.
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
press f8 on boot and select vga mode
the once into the os reset the video card options
try another monitor
if its a card, swap it out, if its on board put a card in
reset the bios to defaults check your motherboard manual there is a jumper on the motherboard to do this normally.

Once again I'm having computer trouble and I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me.
I recently purchased a new motherboard, CPU and Graphics card and everything was working fine until I tried playing online Warcraft3. After trying that my screen has started going to a black screen with a box that says "24k/ohz Frequency is out of range" - I have experienced this once or twice before but it seemed to fix itself after I unplug and replug in the graphics cord that leads to the monitor. So from that experiencing i'm guessing the problem is with the graphics card, if I'm wrong - please don't hesitate to correct me, a brand new graphics card with problems isn't a nice thing to have afterall.
Oh I should point out that it is only that screen that comes up, after awhile of the message being up my monitor will put itself to hibernation mode but the computer remains turned on (I can still hear music and everything, I just can't see a thing)
Please help me.
Sounds like you need to either increase or decrease the display refresh rate at that resolution.
So I was playing Counter-Strike, and was messing around with the resolutions on the game. I forgot which resolution I switched to; it was some where around the 7XX by XXX. Anyways, after I changed to that resolution my monitor went black screen and gave me a message saying, "Frequency Out Of Range". Even though it's black screened I can still move the mouse around and here the sound effects but I can't see anything. I'm pretty sure that it's the resolution I changed to because my video card (GeForce 7900 GT) doesn't support that resolution. Anyways if any one of you guys could help me out, that would be nice.
Hey, NVM I fixed the problem already. I had to run it in windows mode. Alt+Enter doesn't work in game, you have to manually set it in game. However, reading other threads I found out how to run a game window mode. So here's what I did:
1) Right click Counter-Strike desktop shortcut
3) It should say: ["C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 10] add a -window to the end of that statement.
4) It should then say: ["C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 10 -window]
5) Run the game, and it should run in window mode.
So after I ran it, I just changed back the resolution and problem fixed.
I have 2x2GB DD3 1333mhz Kingmax RAM and I see the NB Frequency at 1597mhz(1600mhz) and i want to know how much should be this NB Frequency.
P.S:I heard it should be 3xDRAM Frequency(667mhz).
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?
Taken from my post on a lenovo forum:
heres mine for reference> CPU-Z :you can see in my shot that it shows what its currently at. my NB actualy shows what it is at real time because mines a little nicer of a motherboard thats all. Also cpu-z seems to read some speeds funny as for mine its says its 10700 under SPD when its really 17000. this is because it does not read my XMP profile.

If you put RAM in that runs at a higher frequency than 533MHZ, then it will automatically run at the fastest speed your computer accepts (or should, at least) which is 533MHZ.

HF 28.0 Hz
UF 62.0 Hz
HF 30-70 Hz
UF 50-120 Hz
POWER SAVER AFTER
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]
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...
