Check in the BIOS to see what processor is rated at (upon power-up of laptop hit F2 key to enter setup menu). Depending on what model Centrino you have, the speed rating should be at around 1.2 GHz or better. If speed checks out in the BIOS then run diagnostics on laptop to see if the motherbrd has a bottleneck issue. To do this, hold down the <FN> key and then push the power on button. Problem could be either your processor or motherbrd.

Videl and game lag


Hi. After looking at the specs of your tower, the Celeron cpu you have runs at a slow 533 MHz FSB speed and is a single core processor. The good news is that your motherboard is designed to handle an intel Pentium D Dual Core CPU 900 series. Your motherboard uses a type Socket T plug (CPU Plug type). The processors name is The Pentium D 920. Have Fun.

Cpu clock in my bios read only from 1200 to 1600 mhz.


Please read carefully the chapter 2 (page 33 and 47) of User's Manualfound at:
http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S8X-X&type=Manual&SLanguage=en-us

I suggest you select "Auto" on "CPU Speed" setting in the BIOS "Advanced" Menu or adjust 18x in "CPU Frecuency Multiple" if posible for reach optimal setting.

2 ghz processor running at 220 mhz


Hi,

Have you tried right clicking on the desktop (opening Display Properties), clicking on Screen Saver tab, Clicking the Power button, and setting the power schemes to Home/Office Desk? If its set on laptop it will reduce the processor speed when running on battery. I have noticed that even with it plugged in that some times it will run at half processor speed. Try that out.

Have a great day,

Processor id recognized as 498mhz instead of previous 648Mhz


THE CPU IS TEST IN BATCHS OF 1000'S THEY WILL MAYBE PICK ONE OUT OF THE THOUSAND AND TEST LOOK A THE MAXIMUIM THE CPU FUNCATION AT THAN PICK A SAFE ALTERNATE SETTING OF MHZ FOR ALL CPU IN THAT GROUP, THAT ONE CPU MAY BE ONLY DEFAULTY CPU TO RUN AT 500 MHZ, THAT ONE HAS A PROBLEM IN THE CURCUITRY OF THE CPU, I WOULD RETURN IT TO WHERE YOU PURCHASED THE CPU AND EXPLAIN THE PROBLEM, INTEL ALSO IN THE CPU SPECIFACATION GIVE A TOLERANCE OF MAYBE 8-10%
ERROR ON ISSUES WITH THE OPERATION SPEED OF THE CPU, LETS SAY THE CPU IS RARED AT 500MHZ AT 1 % OPERATION SPEED IS WILL FAILURE OF 5MHZ, THAT CHIP IS STILL OKAY AND YOU JUST GOT THE RUNT OF THE LITTER.
NOW LETS SAY ITS RATE FOR 550 TO 600 MHZ THAN YOU HAVE A GOOD CASE ON RETURN BECAUSE THE FAULURE RATE IS TO HIGH ON THE % OF FAULTY REQIUREMENT,

I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND BASICLY HOW IT WORKS OR ASK SOME ONE AT INTEL TO EXPLAIN HOW THE FAILURE RARE ON CPU WORK.

PS

THAT PRODUCT IS NOT WORKING RIGHT, HAVE THEM RUN THE TECHNICAIN TEST PROGRAM, OR CPU TEST RATE IS, OR DRIVE PRO, OR CHECKIT SOFTWARE, OR WICHECKIT, OR DIAGNOSTIC UTILITIES SOFTWARE, QAPLUSWIN, OR THE TROUBLESHOOTER PROGRAM ON THE MACHINE.

Upgrading Processor & Graphics card


The Intel® 845G chipset is optimized for the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology†. It is designed with the high performance 533/400 MHz system bus and integrated high-speed USB 2.0.

Max Cpu
Pentium 4 2.8ghz with a 400mhz FSB and
Pentium 4 2.63ghz with a 533mhz fsb

pay close attention when getting your cpu if it has a 533 front side bus and is faster than 2.63 then the actual cpu speed will end up slower (you will see something like 2.1ghz) if it comes on due to multiplier limitations

Petium 3 processor with windows xp


Just a bit of information. Your slow speed reguards to DSL is bull. Unless your ISP requires your system to run a min Mhz cpu. Cant really suggest how high you can up your cpu unless we know the model of the board & it wouldn't hurt to know the bios version too. Here is a small list from Fixya of Dells & Pent III. http://www.fixya.com/support/dell/motherboards/f5996
