Re: extreme slow performance, cpu performance maxed out
Boot to safe mode and see if the problem is the same. Have you checked for viruses and spyware? Look in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Event Viewer, System and Application for red marks. Do you have a temp monitor installed? Have you changed anything in the BIOS? Set to safe defaults.

Intel core tm duo cpu e4500 motherboard Intel = Processor (CPU ) manufacturer Intel Core tm = Trademark. The Intel Core is a Trademark from Intel CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply - Processor for short. e4500 is an Intel Core2 Duo processor. Maximum frequency rate ('Speed') is 2.2GigaHertz. 2MegaByte of L2 Cache. (2MB of L2 Cache) 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (800MHz FSB)
Tells me Nothing about the actual motherboard. Look on the motherboard for a Model Number. May be in center of motherboard. May be on edge of motherboard. May be in-between one of the expansion slots, on motherboard.

Also post what the problem is, in your best description.
Computer does not turn on. (Power Supply does not turn on) Computer seems to turn on, but get No Signal on monitor, or Sleep Mode on monitor, or Power Saver Mode on monitor. LED lights light up, and fans spin.
A dual core processor has two cores (essentially, two CPUs on one chip).
Core2Duo is a specific dual-core processor design. Thus, all Core2Duo
CPUs are dual-core CPUs, but not all Intel dual-core CPUs are Core2Duo
Essentially all current Intel consumer dual-core CPUs today are
Core2Duo designs. They have different names, but vary mostly in terms
of their FSB speed (mostly, how quickly data can be transferred to/from
RAM) and in the amount of cache memory in the CPU (cache memory is a
relatively small amount of high-speed memory on the CPU chip that stores
frequently-used data and instructions; it can improve performance 4-15%
or so, depending on the amount).Best Regards, Luis.
There really is no difference, there are differences in the E numbers though. Those are specificallt about it's GHz's, it L1 and L2 cache.
Though Intel Core 2 Duo is the same as Intel Dual Core. It's just a different name. This confusion is caused because of Intel changing the names of it's processors series. The Pentium brandname for example is gone. Intel Pentium Dual Core is now called Intel Core 2 Duo.
Not sure what information you were requesting. So here is some information about your motherboard:
- LGA775 socket for Intel® Core2 Duo/65nm Pentium D/Pentium 4/Celeron CPU - Intel 865G + Intel ICH5 - 1066(O.C)/800/533 MHz - Dual-channel DDR400 - Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 - 1 x AGP 8X - 2 *ATA133 ,2 x SATA - 10/100/1000 LAN - 6-Channel audio
