I have a system as follows: P4 2.26GHz, 1GB RAM with Asus P4B533-E MB. I updated the sp2 for my winxp pro two weeks ago. I found out yeterday that it showed P4 2.26GHz and 1.7GHz in the system properties. I wonder what happened to my CPU? Does that mean my P4 2.26GHz runs at 1.7GHz? Thanks for your thoughts.
Check your bios setting. It should be 133 for cpu fsb.
Thanks, i will check that tonight. I updated my system bios few weeks ago. Probably it changed the FBS back to 100MHz. Thanks a lot.
If the fsb is still at 133, it's time to give your hsf a good cleaning. Your chip will throttle to 1.7 if it is overheating, so check your temps, and give your rig a cleaning, if it hasn't been done lately.
