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.

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.

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?

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

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.

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.

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.
