CPU too much speed

This might not be in the right place, so if a moderator could be this in the correct spot, that would be much appreciated.

My dad just upgraded my CPU from a E4500 to an E8400. Everything runs smooth, but then I checked the time, and the seconds hand moves every 2 seconds for every 1 second in real time. Also when I tried playing some games, the program runs about 2x to 3x faster than it should be.

Another thing is that the Device Manager and System Information shows the old processor, and it does not update the processor at all. Meanwhile, the startup BIOS shows the new processor.

I'm not the greatest at using computers, so any help would be appreciated.
