Trouble with Processor Speed?
Hello, I have a HP computer that I bought about 4 months ago. I bought it mainly because I wanted a Dual Processor, but the problem is that it isn't running to what it should be.
OS - Windows XP Media Center
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 3800+
Where I am having my problem is when I go to control panel to check my processor clock speed. When I'm there it is only showing 1.00GHz running.
The question I really have is, is it only running at 1 GHz because its a dual processor? Or do I need to do something to enable the computer to run at a higher speed?
I know that I have over 2 GHz with this computer, so I'm just not sure if it is running at that speed and I just don't know? Or do I need to do something special?
I currently reformatted my computer so if there were a virus or anything its gone, the computer is running from stratch with only 42 processes.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE!
