  1. Have you updated the Bios?
  2. no the last thing i know is i change the settngs in the bios the name is overclocking.. thank you plss help me
  3. Well the first thing you need to do is update the bios since your board is outdated. Once that has been done you should be fine.

    You will not see your CPU listed correctly till you update the bios. Go to the Biostar website and folow the instructions on how to flash your Bios.
  4. i update now my bios i find it in the installer of my board and install and update online but still 1.20 should i restart my pc.
  5. If you updated your Bios and restarted your PC you should see your CPU listed correctly unless it is not supported by your motherboard.
  6. should i change my board i reset my c-mos settings and default it but still 1.20GHz i use the cpuz and the
    clocks (core #0)
    Core Speed-1150.0MHz
    multipliler-x5.75
    Bus Speed-200.Mhz
    HT Link-1800.0Mhz
    thank you OvrClkr. thanks a lot
  7. What exact CPU did you buy?
  8. 8650 AMD 64 phenom x3
    and my board is red fox GF8100 M2+SE.
  9. Ok, raise your multiplier till you it shows 2.3Ghz (should be around x11) and then boot. Once back in bios make sure it shows your CPU running at 2.3Ghz, you should not have to change any other values.
  10. i cant find the multiplier ;D its in the c-mos settings?
  11. im looking at the cpuz then when i refresh i press the f5 the core speed and the multiplier back to normal. and when i stop refreshing its back again in 1.20GHZ.. whats wrong?
  12. No, its in your Bios, once you boot and see your mobo poster click on F2 to pull up your Bios...
  13. thank you i will continue this tomorrow you help me a lot thank you thank you. its ok if i send you a message if i cant still fix this. thank you again. i need to sleep now thank you. your the best thanks for helping me..
  14. no problem, let me know if you have any other questions....

    you can send me a message anytime =)
  15. ....

    Sounds like cool n quiet to me. Either disable cool n quiet, or run something that will actually put a decent load on your processor, you should see it clock itself back up.
  16. hello i cant find the cool and quiet so i try to disable and enable the three settings in cpu config. one by one
    1. secure virtual machin mode. disable
    2. powerenow. enable
    3.ACPI SRAT TABLE. enable

    "still 1.20GHz"

    1. secure virtual machin mode. disable
    2. powerenow. disable
    3.ACPI SRAT TABLE enable

    "now back to normal 2.30GHz"

    now the settings is

    1. secure virtual machin mode. enable
    2. powerenow. disable
    3.ACPI SRAT TABLE. enable

    and its running at 2.30GHz but i dont know if thats ok to disable the powernow the powernow says
    enable/disable the generation of ACPI, PPC, PSS, and PCT objects.
    i dont know what is that mean..

    and if i format my pc the bios will be back at the old version. thank you.. OvrClkr and loneninja.

    Cool n quiet should be on the first page of your Bios.

    For example :

    2. powerenow. disable
    3.ACPI SRAT TABLE enable

    Late to the thread, but for whomever may care:
    Powernow is Cool'n'Quiet.

    As long as it ramps up cleanly when your system is under load it is best to leave it enabled as it reduces thermal load on the CPU, which should extend your CPU lifespan.
