Q: Lenovo P50 XEON CPU Clock Speeds and Bios Menu Acc...

Hello! I am a happy owner of Lenovo p50, but i got couple of questions. Firstly, Intel Xeon CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHz should have a maximum clock speed of 3.7ghz, but thats not the case. The higher i see it goes is ~3.4ghz. I use Piriform Speccy. I tried some CPU stress tests etc, but the result is around 3.4ghz max clock. The Second question is why my bios menu is all greyed and i cannot change any setting. Yesterday i upgraded the BIOS to the latest N1EET60W (1.33 ) and today i tried to visit the BIOS to check some CPU related settings, but i found that almost every setting is locked and i cannot access it. It might be a security mechanism, but before i enter the menu i got promted to scan my fingerprint so i guess that should be it.

I want to purchase a new computer soon, and would like to buy one with an Athlon processor.

I have a number of software applications I will want to install on this new machine, but the system requirement are always listed in terms of Pentium processors and Ghz.

How can I know if a certain Athlon processor is comparable to a certain Pentium version?

(For example: I know I will need the equivalent of a P4 - 2.4 Ghz.)


A:How to know Athlon clock speeds?

An Athlon XP 2400+ would be equivilant to a Pentium 4 2.4Ghz.

An Athlon's model number is to what clock speed its compareable on a Pentium 4. So an Athlon64 3200+ will give you roughly the same performance as an Intel Pentium 4 running at 3000Mhz.

I recently built a new PC, and Nvidia Monitor shows my 9800GTX bus speeds as:

GPU core (3D): 300.000 MHz
GPU memory: 100.000 MHz

This is confusing to me because they seem lower than what the 9800 should have (a 738 MHz core clock is what it should be).

However, my performance in-game is still quite good, so I'm assuming that the two cards ARE operating at their factory clock speeds - and that Nvidia is just monitoring them wrongly? Could the mistake be related at all to the SLI steup?

Thanks for any help.

A:My 9800GTX+ clock speeds are off...

Those are idle clocks...Try running Furmark or AtiTool stability test, and they will be 738 and... 1100? As well as they go up when you game. Whenever the card is not really in use, it goes down to save energy.

My laptop been showing unusually high clock speeds on HW monitor recently. I have not overclocked when I bought it but I'm aware that the i7 4710hq has turboboost capabilities to 3.5Ghz. Just recently I have seen the clock speeds reach up to 3.7Ghz which had not happened in the past year I had the laptop (the speeds continuosly reach this point even after the first day). My concerns are :1. Will these high speeds cause any harm whatsoever?? 2. Any ideas what could have caused this to happen all of a sudden?

I have recently purchased the abovementioned graphics card, and have a query.

When I view the clock speeds in Catalyst Control Centre (in the Graphics Hardware tab) it reports the core at 500Mhz and the memory at 594Mhz. This is at odds with the cards specification, which states that they should be 625Mhz and 900Mhz respectively.

Interestingly, under the ATi Overdrive facility (which I have not used at all) it says that the core is 'currently' at 500Mhz, but the 'requested' speed is 621Mhz. Similarly, the memory is said to be at 594Mhz, with a requested speed of 900Mhz.

So my question is, am I just seeing the slower speeds which the graphics card runs at when not under load (ie. on the desktop) when it is actually using its full speed when I am gaming? Or do I need to engage the Overdrive facility for the card to use its full power?

Currently the Overdrive facility is greyed out, with a big 'Unlock' button waiting to be pushed.

Thanks in advance for any help,

This is my first post here, and my computer appears to be infected.

The Symptoms:
-- The desktop has "disappeared" and is replaced by a blank blue screen. The icons on the desktop are all gone.
-- There is no "bar" at the bottom: no start button, no task bar, no clock, no indications of open programs. i.e., the entire screen is blue.

-- However, the situation is different right after I start-up.
-- At first, I see all my programs. Sometimes I see the task bar and start button, clock, etc., sometimes not.
-- But something is wrong even then. The computer is slow. And I know desktop will not last long. Sometimes if I am quick I can double click on a desktop icon before the desktop disappears.
-- Sometimes there is a "transition" period. For a few seconds I'll see the desktop, then for a few it will go "all blue".
-- When it is "all blue", I can still get into programs. If I open up the task manager, I can click on the "New Task ..." button under the "Applications" tab.
-- I can still work with documents, but thinks are slow.
-- When I start in safe mode, I still have the problem of the missing desktop.

Other Signs:
-- When I can see the clock, it says "VIRUS ALERT!" followed by the time. My google searches inform me that this is a common symptom.

What I have done so far:
-- I've done the Norton "Quick Scan" -- found something the first time, and fixed i... Read more

Putting together specs for a mini-PC (I need one for travel - that will go onto a plane as hand luggage, as I spent most of the year abroad working) for gaming, MS Flight Simulator X & FS9, to be precise. Basic specs I am probably going with:

Intel® Core i7-4790k (4.0GHz) 8MB Cache




Windows 7 x64 Premium

But as for the RAM? 16GBs is not so much of an extra layout over 8GBs and 2133MHz RAM not so much more than 1600MHz. However that M/B doesn't support 2133MHz RAM and to get one that does adds some £100 sterling to the overall cost of the PC. So with that M/B I'd get:

Question is, would that be false economy?? It's quite an increase in price and my feeling is MS FS will run great with the 1600MHz RAM, but any input would be welcome.

Okay, so I am starting this thread here seeing as how the topic of the old one no longer applies to this situation. I jumped ahead of myself trying to overclock this CPU which made me question the frequencies and voltages which are supposed to be set automatically by the motherboard. I am having a tough time understanding all this. I will post links to the exact parts I am using so whoever is keen enough to try to help will know what we're dealing with.

Motherboard: MSI A88X-G45 Gaming
CPU: AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1 GHz (4.4 Turbo) Black Edition
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline DDR3 2133 MHz PC3 17000 1.6V

CPU-Z Screenshots

After doing some reading in regards to overclocking, I have found out some details which are totally incorrect in my case. For starters, the FSB to DRAM Frequency Ratio, from what I read, is supposed to be 1:1, some reported slightly higher ratios (3:10 or something similar) but CPUZ is showing 3:32 which sounds absurd. Also, it's reporting the RAM as PC3-12800 at 800 MHz and voltage at 1.5(?). I haev Intel XMP enabled on the motherboard, and the motherboard reports memory speed in BIOS at DDR-2133MHz. Can someone analyze the above shot and information and clue me in as to what is wrong and what needs to be done? I would really appreciate it because I am baffled. I have no clue what the CPU-NB frequency and voltages are for, so I don't want to mess with something I don't know anything about.

I've got an Acer Model As5742 Laptop with an i5 480M processor and 8 GB of good Ram. I'm running Win 7 Pro 64 Bit. It's only about 5 months old and this started about a month ago. I have no other problems. IE: Blue Screens or Lockups or anything, just the Bios clock changes to a random date and time after every restart. I replaced the Bios battery twice and it only effects the chore of having to reset the time in Windows every time I boot.

I'm going to send it to Acer to be repaired within a week or two, but maybe it's not a bad timing mechanism in the motherboard and one of you people have a correct solution to it. Which will save me the trouble of sending it in for a motherboard replacement.

I do have all the drivers and bios updates installed. Oh yes I've ran about 15 different virus Etc. Malware scans with several different products and they all come back clean.
I ran System File Checker SFC /scannow from the command prompt several times that also comes back OK.

If this is the case then Windows wouldn't change it, though malware might I suppose (and you have checked for this).

Can you otherwise make changes to your BIOS settings that "stick"? If yes, then return/repair is all I can think of. If NONE of your BIOS changes survived reboot though, then I might consider whether that laptop left the factory with its "reset CMOS" jumper in the "reset" position. Dunno if laptops have these, but most desktop mobos do of course.

Oops you said "started a month ago" so my "left the factory jumpered wrong" would not apply.

Also, is it possible to create buttons for locking/shutdown/restart/sleep, I know how to do these things multiple other ways, but it would make the new beta less of a hassle.

I checked T3600 and 3610 - the only difference is BIOS firmware, even BIOS chips are the same. T3600 has Intel ME firmware 7th version - that is why Xeon v2 are not recognized by the 3600 system, they need later 8th version of ME. Upgrade of ME formware is a difficult procedure  - You need to fit the size and other attributes of old ME region. The simpliest way would be to read both BIOS chips from 3610 motherboard and clean data region in ME but I don't have any T3610 systems. Another way is to analyze BIOS file for T3610 and drag out the firmware for T3600. If anybody has T3610 - please reply

Saw your other post asking about optical drive. I got a feeling that it's either a joke or scam. 1) There's no optical drive option for P50 (of course we are talking about built-in drive, not the external one).2) There's no E3-1550M v5 option for P50.  In fact, even the E3-1535M has limited availability.  e.g. E3-1535M is available in Japan but not in US. Good luck with the 'special built' P50.

So when I turn on my lenovo u410 laptop I get this menu box up as seen below in a black background. I've played around with the menu and I get nothing. This has been happening for the past few days and usually it manages to get past this and start up normally. However today is the day it's decided to stay put and I have no idea what to do. This is very frustrating as I only bought the laptop less then 2 months ago. Please help!     It's windows 8 btw

Hi N_A,
Thanks for posting and welcome to the Lenovo Community,
I?d like to guide you in a way to try to set the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) inside the BIOS to be the first priority booting order so we will try to return the BIOS to factory default settings:
Step1: Please turn off the machine and then at the left side you can see the NOVO button which is the button with the curve arrow
Step2: Press on the NOVO button and then you will get option press on BIOS Setup
Step3: Please press on FN+F9 together and then press Enter on Yes option and then FN+F10 to save and exit and then press Enter
Hope the information helps. Let us know.

I have some problems with the Lenovo software. Lenovo Account Portal does not launch Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Also, Lenovo Solution Center is missing from the Start Menu. The second problem is that some tiles are blank in Start Menu. Seemingly it's the apps that aren't Metro. I'm not sure when the problem started, but I think it was like that since I got the PC. If I right click the apps, the only option will be "Pin to Start", and with some apps: Share and Rate. Here's a picture of the problem:I did already try:Restarting the PC.Doing scannow, DISM, and scannow again.Fixing Registry errors with CCleaner.Updating BIOS and drivers. What can I do to fix the problem?
