Hi, I have posted one or two threads about this, but my CPU speed got lowered after I factory reinstall the windows. I never messed around with overclocking or underclocking anything from the BIOS so I don't know what happened. Heres a picture of the Core speed I have.

The regular speed should be around 1600-1800mhz and the GHZ is suppose to be 2.13ghz~2.13ghz (not 1.1ghz)

I would be really happy if someone would help me. Thanks for the replies ^^

EDIT: Sometimes the Core Speed changes around 1068.3 MHz to either 800.2 or 796.3 Mhz. But the regular Mhz should be around 1600-1800.

The link doesn't work for me. Does your CPU use Cool and Quiet or other speed throttling controls? If so you can set it to run at full speed all the time and then it won't change frequency.

There was one solution that made my CPU go to the regular MHz but now it doesn't work anymore. Since I have a Windows XP CD, I just popped it in and waited until it finished factory reinstalling, I checked the CPU with CPU-Z and the CPU went back to normal. So I was assuming that solved the problem. So, I popped in my Windows 7 CD and factory reinstall once more and went to system information. It said 2.13ghz ~1.1ghz. I was so frustrated and that never happened to me before :( ...

Its not the throttling controls like Speedstep. Speedstep only ups or lowers the multiplier.

his issue is the FSB. Its running at 132MHz when it should be running at 266MHz (1066MHz effective).

My Q6600 runs a 333MHz (1333Mhz effective) and that never drops. Only the multiplier.

Check your BIOS and make sure its set at 266MHz for the FSB.

How do I know if it's set. I ran the BIOS and it showed only the proccesor speed and the name of it. Most of the things are grayed out so I can't change anything :( .
