    Hmm...hyperthread clockspeed? The other possibility is power saving feature, but I don't recall a Pentium 4 having it. Never seen that before. Check system information instead and see what it is. Heck if you want triple check with program CPUID, tis free.
  2. Download CPU-Z and post a screen shot of the first tab. The 2.4GHz is the speed its supposed to be, the number you boxed is the actual clock speed. It seems like you might have some bad memory too, 992MB isnt a standard number, im not even sure how you can get to that number.
  3. Well 1024-992=32 MB, so something is reserving that 32 MB. Hence that seems like a standard number.

    But ya lol thats what I meant, CPU-Z, the websites www.cpuid.com

    1024-32. Maybe he's using integrated graphics with 32mb of ram set aside for them?
  5. this is what Cpuz shows



    allso this




    And there is 32mb integrated graphics but i don't use it because i have a 6800Gtx in it
    but this is not the pc im using all just for LAN party

    Also for Ram theres 2 sticks of 512 im going to add 3gigs

    And i can't remember if this cpu has hyperthread its been a long time and if it has it how would hyperthread make it any faster?
    Im not a Intel fan AMD is were its at lol
  6. Check your BIOS settings because according to this: http://www.computing.net/answers/cpus/p4-24ghz-running-at-179ghz/15151.html, your clock settings might be incorrect. Either that or the motherboard doesn't support the max FSB. Also, set your BIOS to use the graphics card only.
  7. will do that right now will pics in like 2min maybe

    heres what i have it at



    Also how do i set BIOS to use the graphics card only. were at would i go?




    And Thanks every one for the help and for posting :sol:
  8. To get your CPU to its rated speed, the FSB speed should be 133MHz rather than the ~100MHz that it is currently at.

    I don't know the exact location for the graphics settings, but fish around its gotta be there somewhere. While looking, just look for on board graphics option or integrated graphics option or something labeled like that.

    Also set the CPU Host/SDRAM/PCI clock to default first cuz I don't know what memory you have.
  10. heres default

    Problem solved then. Best answer please :-)
  12. :pfff: now i just tryed to over clock the cpu and did not look at what i did and now the bios dose not like me lol

    Do a CMOS reset, then when you are re-entering the BIOS settings go into the "Integrated Peripherals" menu and see if your onboard VGA can be turned off.
  14. i toke CMOS battery.started it up tern it off but bat back in and now im getting floppy dive a error
  15. Best answer
    It's usually a jumper setting to reset CMOS but nevermind, you will need to reset the boot order and as the default is to boot from floppy and halt on all errors you will need to disable the floppy seek option.
  16. Ty it works now and Ty ever for the help :wahoo: :wahoo: :wahoo: :sol:
