hi this is actually getting strange now. i have seen this before but cant remember where.

i got told the speed on processors was a bit lewss than the actuall speed for AMD. just like my laptop is 1800+ but runs at 1.53 i think it is

now i have a desktop that i have upgraded and on the POST screen it says AMD Sempron 2800+ but directly underneth it says 1600+ just like when i right click my computer it says it. is this a bug in windows or have i done something wrong. i thought it should say 2.53 something like that i expected it to be less but not that much. it dosnt feel slow though - then again when iv been stuck with p2 while i was building this 1.6ghz is amazing let alone 2.8ghz lmao Smiley

thanks for your help.

It may be that you dont have the FSB set correctly.

Download CPU-Z

Just unzip the files in a directory and run the .exe. In order to remove the program, just delete the files, and that's it.
The program does not copy any file in any Windows directory, nor write in the registry.

HTT means HyperThreadTechnology, when I use CPZ I get the actual FSB of 100.2MHz (mines a 800 MHz cpu)
Some boards have a jumper on the motherboard itself to change the FSB. It looks like your core speed is coming up as 1607.8MHz

Do you have your mobo manual to look at?

Pay attention to the jumpers, if the board has the option to change the FSB via a jumper that s wher you want to look.
I cannot tell just from looking at your image, I would need to read the manual......ever hear the phrase RTFM  LOL .... Cheesy

LOL

RTFM!!!!

well i couldnt find the FSB setting but i found this cool n quiet thing in BIOS. i disabled that and its back up to 2800+ so i presume that the cool and quiet thing only uses 2800+ if it has to - like if im on FM - thing is i didnt pay for 1.6 i paid for 2.8 lol.
thanks for your help.
