patonb is right. There is no need for CPU driver. Download CPU-z (an information tool for processors). it will tell your CPU specs. post here the result.

The low frequency may result of incorrect BIOS configuration. Or maby this CPU (I'm not so familiar with AMDs) have a power saving feature that slows the clocks if CPU is idle.
