I would say no, since 1GHz is greater than 900MHz by 100MHz and you state that *********** Board only supports up to 900MHz.

Your cpu is overheating., try opening the case and see if there is a lot of dust built up. Unplug the electrical and try vacuuming it out. also check the screen in front of the fan.

My emachines t3256 is running at half speed, it supposed to be a 2.2 GHZ prossesor and now its only 1.1 GHZ please help


Hello,

This is not necessarily a problem. The computer will utilize the cpu when it needs to, meaning, you are not putting much of a burden on the cpu if it is only running at 1GHZ. When you start to do more task, run more programs etc, you will see the CPU utilization increase!

I hope this is informative.

Compaq Deskpro EN 1GHz. power supply is ok. But not start with power on button. Green LED on mother board is on. How can I start this with start button (I think motherboard board problem.


Unplug it from the wall. Remove the side panel. Look for a small circular battery (similar to watch battery). Remove the battery for 30 seconds. Replace the battery, plug it back in. This should reset the bios. Green light on the board does not necessarily say good power supply as well. Very likely motherboard or power supply.

This isn't a sure fix by any means, but...
You could try unplugging the unit from the wall socket and opening the case. Touch a metal component inside the case for a few seconds to equalize static charge between yourself and your machine.
Next, remove the battery on the motherboard, and wait 5-15 minutes before reinstalling it. What this will accomplish is to reset the computers' BIOS (Basic Input Output System) settings to the defaults for the motherboard, which may let the machine figure out what processor you installed.
If it works, your machine will boot up, and you'll get an error message telling you that there is a checksum error or simply that a BIOS setting is wrong. You'll have to read the message and press the appropriate key to get into BIOS, then reset the date and time.
I hope this helps in some small way- It's rough attempting to set up a machine if you have no visual output to let you know what's going on.
If my solution gets you up and running, please let everyone know by writing a testimonial.

My processor's clock speed is 2.53ghz, when i boot up my computer's processor actually runs at a 2ghz clock speed intel ID utility detected it but after 10mins or so my processor's clock speed drops down...


The reason for this is because you CPU needs to run only at 1Ghz at that particular moment. see the more programs you run, the more processing is needed. No if your computer is on Idle then the or have programs like word or excel running the processing is less. so the CPU automatically reduces the processing speed. this way the CPU is energy efficient. you have nothing to worry. this is a feature that Intel has added to the newer generation of CPU's
