Well whenever he would run a game, it would switch back again to the 100 mhz. I eventually had to just buy a new motherboard for it to work correctly - I'd take it back and tell the technicians to give you your money back.
The motherboard wouldn't recognize the CPU? Maybe that's what happening, but I seriously doubt that the "tech" would actually refund the money, he did try to rip me off another $75 by telling me to switch to a Celeron. Oh wait, he actually did do that and only refunded $50 when I switched back to Athlon.
By the way, Alcohol 120% detects my processor as a 1.674GHz
My computer was detecting 1.26GHz when I first posted
Checking again now, its detecting it at 1.67Ghz again.
Here's my question...WTF is going on here??? As for the game, its still running at only 60% as it did when the comp was detecting 1.26.
