Angry Underclocked?

Please Help
I have a system I believe it's underclocked; When my PC starts up, the screen says 2GHZ. I tried going into the BIOS, but I don't have a clue as to how to clock my system so that I will have a 3GHZ CPU...
I am using an Intel Pen 4-3Ghz/8 CPU FSB 800MHZ, 512K Cache on a MSI motherboard PM8M-V.

Thanks
Wil

well when the system starts, it usally starts at a lower clock speed so it be stable and work its way up. Too relaly make sure use CPU-Z because the computer has been running long enough to find a stable speed.
