    AMD Semprom 1000hz???

    Hi

    I recently built my first pc using an AMD cpu, Everything seems to be running fine but in the bios it states that the cpu speed is 1000hz. the cpu model is amd 2500+

    So is the cpu running at its full speed or not???

    Thanks

    Semptron 2500+ is supposed to run at 1.750GHz.

    a) Get WCPUID and check if the CPU is running at full speed
    b) install the latest BIOS update

    Sounds like somebody has their FSB set wrong.

    front side bus or in bios. Get into bios and change it to default settings.

    yea, XP will go on anything 233mhz and up...been there done that.

    as far as the sempron goes, they run at 200mhz, crank up the bios settings or throw some jumpers. i just went thru thaton my 2400+

    It seams we have 2 diferent threads going on in one, we have the sarcastic/funny, and then the straight... the reason I say this is that both quotes above are correct.

    Mush states that his CPU speed is registering as 1000Hz which would be 100MHz, now Pudge seams to be playin along with the fact that he screwed up and put Hz instead of MHz, and gospeed.racer os going on the fact that yes he did mess up and put Hz instead of MHz, and possibly thinks that everyone is going along with that... anywho that ends my rant.

    but on topic, if its showing 1000MHz you must have a clockspeed/FSB multiplyer setting wrong.
