Question about Intel Pentium M 765, 2.10GHz (BXM80536GC2100FSL7V3) Boxed Processor

1 Answer

Intel pentium m processor 765 2.1ghz

I've just reinstalled windows on my dell and as far as i know all the drivers have been installed but my computer still is running sluggish. I've been to intel's webpage and d/l thier ID utility and it says that the processor is running at 0.14ghz. Why is this? Does this just have something to do with the speedstep technology? Or is my processor bad? if so, how to i confirm this? Is there a programs that can test for this? Or, is there something else wrong with my computer? Thanks to anyone for help, i've been working on this computer for 2 weeks now, this is my thrid reformat and i'm getting frustrated, thanks.

This might be a problem in your computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) settings. You can refer to your manual on how to access the BIOS, but it is usually accessed by pressing F2 or the DEL (delete) key on your keyboard a few seconds after you turn it on. Once in the BIOS you want to find the option to "reset to default" settings. Select that, save the BIOS settings and try again.

If this doesn't work I suggest contacting Dell customer support directly for help.

    Unfortunately I've run out of ideas. Time to call Dell directly, I think.

SOURCE: intel pentium m processor 765 running at 0.14ghz after reformat, why?

Intel processors slow themselves down rather than burn up. It could be that your fan is not turning, or the heatsink is clogged up with dust. This may, or may not, be the problem, but it's worth checking.

I don't know your exact CPU specs but I've taken a single core Intel M processor 2.0 GHZ from a Dell 800 laptop and put it into my wife's X1000 and have had no problems running XP SP3. My own x1000 computer reports Intel Pentium M 1600MHZ as CPU type.

DELL OptiPlex GX150 Upgrading

The fastest processor you can install in a GX150 is a Pentium III 1.13 Ghz processor.

The Socket 370 was a design used only for P3 processors.

Max RAM for that system is 512MB no way to upgrade past that.

If you paid $100 for a GX150, you paid way too much (You can buy a refurbished Dell Dimension C521 for $225 at their refurb site)

Changing a cpu on a compaq 5000T/REM

I've located this description when installing the pentium 4 processor on Windows XP. If you have not performed these steps this may be the cause of what you are experiencing. To save you time I've pasted the section below--> Operating System Support
Nearly all modern operating systems designed for the Intel Architecture have support for the Pentium 4 processor, although some may require specific versions or processor support files. Many Microsoft operating systems like Windows* 98 SE, Windows NT* 4 with Service Pack 5, Windows* 2000, Windows* ME, and Windows* XP support the Pentium 4 processor. Linux* distributions based on the Linux* 2.4 core support the processor. Also, many other vendors have support for the Pentium 4 Processor in their operating systems. System integrators should verify that the operating system they have selected supports the Pentium 4 processor.

Note: Windows XP or certain versions of Linux are required for Hyper-Threading Technology2 support for the Pentium 4 processor. For additional information on integrating systems based on the Pentium 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, refer to the Integration Overview for Systems Based on the Intel Pentium 4 Processor Supporting Hyper-Threading Technology.

All operating systems that support the SSE instructions that were first introduced with the Intel® Pentium III processor will also support the SSE2 instructions introduced with the Pentium 4 processor. To experience the power of the SSE2 instructions, it is critical that system integrators install drivers and software that have been optimized for the Pentium 4 processor's SSE2 instructions. For example, for maximum system performance, system integrators using Microsoft operating systems that support DirectX* should load DirectX 8 (or higher).

Software Optimization
With specific drivers that use the SSE2 instructions, graphics accelerators, audio hardware and software, and other system resources can experience substantial performance gain. It is critical that systems also use APIs that use SSE2 instructions to achieve maximum performance. Two examples are Microsoft's DirectX 8 (or higher) and Open GL 1.2 (or higher). Most major graphics accelerator vendors have optimized drivers that use the SSE2 instructions. Graphics card vendors typically highlight support changes with new driver releases. Download and install the latest drivers (dated later than October 2000) from the vendor's Web site. Also, verify that the driver version contains optimization for the Pentium 4 processor.

Many applications also use the SSE2 instructions to experience the breakthrough performance of the Pentium 4 processor. System integrators should contact software vendors to verify support and determine version information.

System performance is greatly affected by proper operating system and driver installation processes. For example, it is important to install the latest Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility immediately after installing most Microsoft operating systems to ensure proper drivers for the chipset are installed prior to installation of other drivers. System integrators should confirm boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems are optimally configured and integrated.

Boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems require proper integration. System integrators that follow the guidelines in this document will experience higher customer satisfaction by providing higher quality systems. 

Please let me know if you have success with this.
Thank You, Raph30

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.
