Bios/cpu Speed Error

Q: Bios/cpu Speed Error

i'm having a bit of a problem i know my CPU speed is a lot faster then what is currently clocked at and as my system recently crashed i got my operating system reinstalled and have just recently noticed this problem i realise that i need to go into bios to adjust the FSBUS speed but that is my problem i restart my computer and it will not let me access the bios at all any help would be greatly appreciated

i'm running an AMD Athlon XP's running at 1.15Ghz which is rediculously slow, i have an Asus A7V8X-X motherboard any other specs needed just ask thanks again

Preferred Solution: Bios/cpu Speed Error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi I just bought a new pc and asked for Corsair 16GB pc3 1200 1600MHz 4x4 GB DDR3 to be installed but when I checked the bios it lists
Memory frequency 1337.68MHz
Total Memory size 16384 MB
should the frequency not be 1600MHz ?

On a lot of PCs the RAM frequency is set to DDR3-1333 by default. To get something different, you may need to set the BIOS to use the XMP (extreme media profile) settings, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

Ive been looking around for ways to change fan speed. I keep seeing people saying check your fan speed in bios, make faster in bios, open bios.. HOW DO I DO THAT? It makes no sense, can someone tell me in laments terms?

A:How do i change fan speed in bios

It's highly possible that your specific BIOS does not contain the tools to do so.

An alternative is to install a Windows program like SpeedFan:

My P50 was silent, but since I updated the BIOS to 1.29 (to get RAID capability), the fan seems to spin from time to time. I notice the noise as it sounds like a jet engine, each time running about 5-10 minutes before going silent again.
Spec: i7-6700HQ CPU, 64GB RAM, FHD screen, NVIDIA Quadro M1000M. Upgraded the OS from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro, and the standard 500GB HDD to 500GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD. Latest change between the fan noise is just the BIOS upgrade. Weird.

W510, S110, W530, E330, E440, Q190, another E440, another Q190, Yoga2, P50, W520... and selling out all Q190s

A:P50 Fan High Speed BIOS v1.29

I can confirm that - it was a more quiet on the 1.28 BIOS. The fan starts to kick in at around ~30% of CPU usage after ~5 seconds.

Hi there This is just a quick question really I have a client at work who has a HP laptop He had some fan after speed update HP BIOS driver problems and sent it to HP They then flashed the BIOS but ever since then he said the fan has been really noisy As i write this i have forgotten the model NO but i know its a laptop When HP fan speed after BIOS update i read the BIOS update description it said something about the BIOS will put the fan into a low volume state when the laptop is in use but its like that isn t working Does anyone know anything It seems to be plastered all over the web and some have cured it with Speed fan etc but they don t seem to work on his PC We have looked at cleaning and also adjusting the speed in the BIODS but he says there is no option and unfortunately i can see the BIOS He said ti was called F if anyone knows Any help would be great as we seemed to have tried a lot and other have said about the same thing so if you could suggest anything it would be brilliant nbsp

A:HP fan speed after BIOS update

'Does anyone know anything?.'

Not a lot, really.

BUT, most Bios settings that affect temps/fan speeds are obvious and can be targetted as either AMD or Intel processor management related to heat and cpu activity accompanied with motherboard manufacturer fan control options.

Get the manual - read it.

two weeks ago i dug out my old compaq v4000 dead laptop out of the closet when a dell laptop from my shop fell off a table and broke . the compaq died a couple years ago and a computer repair shop said the processor was shot so anyway the dell laptop had a pentium m 1.73ghz 479 533 mhz processor and the compaq had a celeron m 1.3ghz 479 400 mhz so i took both apart and put pentium m in compaq hit the power button turned on got into windows works good . well when i checked the bios it shows 1.3 ghz instead of 1.73 ghz checked manual it should support 2.0 ghz 533 mhz i did a bios update still shows the same. the ram is 1 gb pc2700 ddr 333mhz could this be the reason.i would switch memory with the dell but its 2 gb ddr2 5300 or somthing like that i just know it would not hope someone can help me out

A:bios not detecting new processor speed

Your full speed isn't showing up because you are using PC2700, but you need PC4300.
PC4300 runs at max 533MHZ, while PC2700 runs at max 333MHZ.

You wouldn't be able to use the DDR2 ram, as it isn't compatible with DDR slots.

Hello All:

Have just put together a new system:

1) iDeq case (210V)
a) Bios ID: KM400A-8237-GAGLY09C-0
b) Build Date: 10/20/2004
c) Flash Type: AMIC A2040 /5V
2) AMD Athlon 2400+
3) Windows XP Pro With SP #2
4) More Info If needed

Everything works fine except: the BIOS is reading the Processor as an 1800+ instead of the 2400+ that is installed.

Have looked on the internet and read the Users Manual, but am unsure what the latest BIOS ver. is, and where to get it.

Does any know what to do about this?

Have an Elite MoBo K7S5A and the BIOS settings in CPU Pnp CPU speed show 2 settings i.e. 100Mhz/100Mhz, which can be changed to 100Mhz/133Mhz or 133Mhz/133Mhz.
I have an Athlon XP2000 cpu.with 512k SDRAM (2x256)
Q1. What does each setting relate to; Mem speed FSB speed Proc speed?
Q2. I have set the speed to 100/100 (the default form best perf)and it works fine but when I look in my sys Info it says my proc is 1.2 Mhz, when I set the speed to 133/133 it shows my proc as correctly as an XP2k cpu running at 1.6Mhz. But it hangs. What should it be set to.
Q3. The manual says that the MoBo is 200 or 266 FSB does this mean I can only use multiples. I ask as I am just putting together another machine with the same MoBo.

Hi all I seem to Speed Changing Somthing in CPU BIOS be having a problem with either my CPU or my Motherboard or my BIOS or somthing Somthing on my computer keeps changing the cpu speed in the bios at seemingly random times to mhz speed when it should be ghz I originaly thought it was Ntune because that has the ability to change bios settings without having to restart but after i removed it and the problem persisted i thought maybe the processor or motherboard or BIOS is damaged Every time the cpu gets set to mhz i start experiencing extreme lag and eventualy the computer locks up completley with the sound looping if anythings playing SOmetimes but rarely it will give me the Blue screen but then close before i can read it Every time this happends i go into the BIOS and it says the CPU is operating at mhz and the CPU multiplyer is x I have a intel quad core proc ultra vid i nforce MB and gigs of dual channel sli RAM and use windows XP if that matters I put a clean image on and everything no dumb programs running and it also crashes before win XP even has the oportunity to even think about loading up sometimes as fast as just after processor is recognized to before and after memory is counted to after harddrive is recognized etc and ofcourse all those random moments when im playing games watching movies or just using it to surf the net i doubt its some kind of driver issue unless it has to do with the bios or motherboard the i BIOS frequency options works like this theres columns and one column is the speed setting you want it to be and the next is the speed setting it actualy is I have it set on the proper option which is auto or w e so it sets it at factory defaults or recomended settings for my hardware types i dont do anything manualy i let the bios do it how it likes Now sometimes it shows column one being nice and fine showing ghz and a x cpu multiplyer and then it shows the speed it actualy is at mhz and x multiplyer Other times it shows both columns at mhz and xmultiplyer Somthing Changing CPU Speed in BIOS I dont know wtf is wrong with this but its getting quite annoying if anyone has any information on what could be wrong please tell me thanks if u need any more info because im sure i missed alot Somthing Changing CPU Speed in BIOS of stuff to tell you please just ask nbsp

Hi guys

I have problem on my ram (actualy its my nephew's PC)

when I entered BIOS set-up, what is detected their is 2 X
256mb (DDR333) ram, where infact the actual RAM is DDR400.

is this a bios version problem? is their a need upgarde the bios version?

by the way the RAM brand is GEIL DDR400 256mb (x2).

thanks for the help and time

A:Bios detect incorrect RAM speed

did you upgrade the ram? it may be you board doesn't support it. or if one of them is a 333 and the other is 400 for dual channel operation, it will under clock the faster one. do both sticks physically say DDR400 or is there a stick in the machine running at 333?

So I got this new computer right, and the processor's supposed to be an AMD Athlon XP2600+ CPU. The motherboard's got DDR333 slots, and I'm told the RAM I have is DDR400.

When I start up the computer, it says AMD 1150 Mhz, and that the memory frequency is DDR200. Surely thats not right, so is there somewhere in BIOS I can go to fix this problem?

Any advice would be most appreciated.

I just got this laptop on Feb. 2016, the HP support assistant specs showed 4 GB RAM at 800 Mhz, after the BIOS update is now showing 4 GB RAM at 1600 Mhz.  The manual says the max speed is 1333 Mhz.  Can someone explain this? I want to upgrade the RAM and need to know if the OEM RAM is salvageable?

A:Confusing RAM speed after BIOS update

Hi, It runs dual channels therefore 800MHz and 1600MHz mean the same thing (800MHz dual or double = 1600MHz). But due to slower chipset, it automatically downgrade from 1600MHz to 1333MHz. (similar to driving a fast car on a speed limited road). Regards.

My old CPU was 2.40GHz and I replaced it with a 2.53GHz. System information and BIOS still show it as 2.40GHz. One thread said go into BIOS and change the CPU setting but I can't do that in my BIOS, it just states what the CPU is and the speed, it doesn't give the option to change anything. Is there anything I can do, or is this enough information? I have XP SP2 and an ASUS P4G800-V motherboard. Will clearing the RTC RAM do anything for me? I'm looking at the manual for my board and it mentions that. I know just enough about computers to mess things up really bad, that's why I'm here asking for help first.

Firstly I should state that I've never overclocked before and know almost nothing about it.
I'd being having problems with my PC so I decided to update my Bios to the latest version (I'm using an MSI motherboard if thats important??). This seemed to work fine, It didn't solve my initial problem but thats solved now. I've noticed though that my AMD XP processor is now running at 1250mhz when it should be running at 2000mhz. I have no idea how to fix this and would greatly appreciate any help/advice anyone can offer.

Thanks in advance.

A:Flashed Bios now cpu is at wrong speed, Please help

Well I'm not familar with the XP BIOS settings, but you should have two things, an FSB clock setting, usually 200MHz and a CPU multiplier setting, usually X9 to X11. So that 200X10=2000MHz.
But it seems to me that you might have installed the wrong BIOS, very odd that default settings for your mobo would have changed to that degree.
Did you try setting BIOS to fail safe defaults?

Have a look in the BIOS, make sure your CPU's FSB & your Ram speed is set to 200mhz. It might have been reset to a failsafe value when it detected the Ram change.

Hey, guys!
Not sure, if this is right section.. But when ever I turn on my pc I get messige saying that I need bios update in order to use CPU at full speed. Problem is that I already have the newest version of BIOS that there is for my motherboard.
So I wanted to ask - is there a way to still use my cpu full speed without update (bypassing that error messige or what ever is it supposed to be; manualy add driver for cpu or what ever is needed to run it at full speed; or something else).

I bought new CPU cause my old one was slow. But now because of BIOS runing it on safe mode - my new cpu feels even slower..

can under or overclock the speed of the memory stick ,but not much here,to,see real change need to change the mhz make sure all ram is 133mhz if motherboard can handle it.if one stick is slower they will all clock to that one

Why is the XPS 9550 POST speed so slow. The amount of time it takes from when you press the power button to when it starts Windows is about 5-7 seconds. This slows the startup time of the laptop significantly! With an SSD a cheaper Acer computer beats this computer to POST by about 3-5 seconds. It takes the Acer about 2 seconds to start booting Windows. I am on the latest BIOS/UEFI as of 24/04/2016 which is 01.02.00. I suspect this could be something to do with fast booting!

Unfortunately it's Kingston memory. Kingston, for some strange reason, does not print the memory speed on the label. Size, yes. Speed, no.Does anyone know why the speed isn't being reported correctly in the BIOS, and how to verify whether it's a BIOS error or we just didn't get what we paid for? I'm looking into CPU-Z and Memtest86. Thanks in advance....

Bus frequency is 333 MHz.
Because the processor uses Quad Data Rate bus the effective bus speed is 1333 MHz
CPU-Z rarely gives the correct answer now.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology EIST and C1E allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage
and core frequency CPU-Z does not handle this well if at all and gives bad numbers.

If select "edit bios", bios start but I can't find any resource management.


(sorry for my english, I am from Spain)

A:Satellite Pro M30 Bios error Resource conflict - Edit bios setting or boot


I think the error ?edit bios setting? means that you should access the BIOS and should set the BIOS back to the default settings.

Please do this, save the settings and try to boot up!

When will Dell enable Intel Speed Shift via a BIOS update? All the BIOS update requires is requires is writing 1 to MSR 0x770!
Speed Shift was fully supported by Intel and Microsoft in 2015 (1 year ago!). It makes the CPU much more responsive (particularly in gaming and real-time tasks) and costs nothing.
In the meantime, anyone can run software manually to enable Speed Shift but you need to relaunch the software every time your computer sleeps or turns off, so that is inconvenient. But the boost in performance is worth the effort.
I have manually enabled SpeedShift via software such as ThrottleStop or just writing 1 to MSR 0x770.
Dell - can you get Speed Shift into the next BIOS revision?!?!

PC running XP. Sometimes when it boots up I get only a dark screen. Turn it off and reboot and then it boots up in safe mode in the Bios Setup Utility with this message under the Advanced Tab:
"At Bootup System Hung for An Imporper CPU Speed". This used to happen veery infrequently, but is happening more now.

The shown speed in the Bios is 2266 MHZ. The box for the Pentium 4 processor says on it 2.26Ghz which I figure is the same. The 1.525V is the same on both. I did not make changes in the Bios.

This computer has been acting slow at times lately and I had it run through the security forum and it was clean. It acts as through not enough memory when it bogs down, but has 1.5 GB Ram and 64GB free on a 80 GB hard drive..

Any thoughts?

A:XPS 15 9550 CPU speed is as low as 0.75ghz after mannually install windows 10 with all drivers installed and BIOS updated

I've got my problem solved. Please do the following:
1. download intel power gadget, you can search online for it.
2. Check the power rate for your CPU (package pw...) and open videos and applications that will constantly consume CPU power. See if the power is always low. 
3. If the power is always low, try update your BIOS (download from dell drivers and the newest version currently should be 1.1.20), and see whether things are getting better.
4. If the power is still low, you should contact dell technical service to replace your hardware (my computer has replaced the northbridge or southbridge, I forgot, but after replacing, the CPU works fine)
Note: If you are running games using your discrete graphic card, for example starcraft II and you found it's extremely slow, it's possible your cpu is capped.

Windows XP, Pentium processor, somewhere around 800 MHZ. Was browsing on the internet, and all of a sudden, it shut down and tried to reboot. It will almost boot up all the way, but gives an error saying that the CPU speed should be set for the optimial speed, then shuts down and tries to reboot. This cycle just keeps on repeating, and will not quite start up all the way. Any ideas where to start looking? Thanks, Ron.

update...managed to run the Norton virus remover, using a bootable disk to get the computer to start up. The CPU error seems to be cleared up, but it still boots up to the desktop screen, and then just turns off and tries to reboot. This cycle still goes on and on. Norton found, and eliminated, several virus infections, and a rerun of it showed no infections, so they seem to be cleared all out of the machine. I'm quite sure there is still a virus infection of some sort however. Any ideas from you experts out there? Thanks, Ron.

Hey again! I'm back on the forums with a question.

I have 2x Kingston 4GB DDR3 Memory Sticks in my computer, They are both the same models: KVR1333D3N9/4G

Kingston Spec Sheet:

On the Kingston Site and obviously on the KVR1333D3N9/4G it shows that the speed is 1333MHz, but when I plug them in for the first time the default speed is 1066MHz. My board supports 1333MHz+..

Is it a labelling error? I can overclock to 1333MHz fine and 1666Mhz I would just like to know why the default is 1066MHz

Thanks, Alex

Has anyone else received this error using Norton Systemworks 2002 Utility Speed Disk?

I have followed instructions from Symantec's site for how to resolve this issue but had no success. I also am e-mailing tech support for Symantec but that is becoming futile. Anyone else have this and know of something I can try. I have done everything that Symantec says to do.
A side note that might be significant is that in Windows 2000, I cannot run Disk Defragmenter (Windows Defragmenter). Disk Defrag says that it has detected that chkdsk is scheduled to run and run chkdsk /f on restart. I did not schedule it to run so why would it say that it is.

When comparing speeds, remember to divide your speedtest result by 8. 0.89 mbps is around 101KBps.

Download speeds depend on many factors, inclduing the modem/router, traffic through your ISP at the time, and the type of download, just to name a couple.

What type of download is it? Are they torrents? These can often be slow.

Are downloads slow from everywhere?

You mentioned video buffering; Do you have downloads going at the same time that you are trying to view a video? Are there other people sharing your connection (eg other family members)?

You didn't say if you had tried rebooting the router/modem, or if you had been in contact with your ISP. These would be among the first things to try.

As you haven't stated what you have tried, I'm going to assume none of the following have been tried. Apologies if you have tried/tested the following.

If you plug a phone into the same wall socket at your modem do hear any noise/static or is is sound quality very poor or low volume? These might indicate physical line problems, which your Telco would need to address.

It's also possible the equipment at your local exchange is in need of a reboot. This is often referred to as a "Port reset". Your ISP can do this for you.

Other things you can try is replacing the phone and ethernet cable (if you are connected by cable), or replacing the line filter if you have one. If you have multiple devices on your phone line remove everything except your modem/router.

If you have a DSL connection you know that the speeds will vary dramatically from one hour to the next. But 2KBps is poor in any situation.

Have you tried doing ping and tracert to various sites? You ISP may want this information to place a fault report with your telco.

copy and paste results into an email to your ISP

ping -t (Stop it after a minute or so).
ping -t (Stop it after a minute or so).


See how you go with the above. Get back to us if you get no joy from your ISP/Telco.

Should this be in the gaming section?

The game loads up and after the EA logo animation it will stop working and Vista will try to solve the problem but can't, so I have to click Close Program.

Anyone else had this problem?

When I bought my AMD R GB I firstly installed Windows The first game that I installed was NFS Porsche I launched it and when I went to maximize the settings I saw that there were no resolutions available in the quot Screen Size quot list I went furhter maximized everything and when I launched a race before the Loading screen to appear it gave me an DX error The same applies to Vista XP is a bit different here it has the x resolution but it s the only one available I was able to play this game on GeForce MX Intel Chipset Graphics Intel HD Graphics from Pentium B but it wasn t able to display correctly the Speedometers in the car and the available for 5 Porsche 2000 resolutions no Need error and Unleashed: Dx7 Speed Number Board on the back of the car and the front Intel HD Graphics from Intel Pentium G i-don t-remember-the-number GHz but having the same problem as the B one and GeForce GT but having the same problem as the Pentiums repedeatly pressing the horn when horning and repedeatly animating the quot changing gears quot when changing gears This is the first graphics card that can t play the game only on XP

A:Need for Speed 5 Porsche 2000 Unleashed: no resolutions available and Dx7 error

Need for Speed Porsche Unleashed is designed for Windows 98. It also has some limited compatibility with newer hardware. In particular, like some of the other EA Racing games from around that time, It is necessary to run "3dSetup" in order for it to effectively save some information into the registry, such that you can select your hardware device. Otherwise, it defaults to the Software Renderer.It's harder to get running than Need For Speed:High Stakes, but  like NFS:HS there are patches that can be installed. You can find the "Essentials Pack" here. Which patches most issues running the game on modern systems.I've got it running on this system- Core i7 4770K @ 3.5Ghz and a GTX 770, at 1920x1080 resolution without any major problems, Using an X-Input controller.Only issues are that it seems to eventually crash (I think I got 4-5 races in or thereabouts) but the progress is saved- and I have to use 1920x1080, even though it does provide the option for my full resolution of 2560x1440.,153660.0.html

i always crash whenever i play need for speed world. it would start for a few minutes or a few seconds. im not sure if its driver related, overheating GPU, or worst, a dead GPU. i attached the minidumps here. hopefully someone can help me out. thanks!

A:BSOD playing Need For Speed World, error 0x0000001e


Both your dumps point toward hardware BUT

Usual causes: Device driver, hardware, System service, compatibility, Remote control programs, memory, BIOS

Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel

Lets enable driver verifier to rule out buggy drivers
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier runs in the background, "testing" drivers for bugs. If it finds one, a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will result; the corresponding dump file will hopefully show the faulty driver.

Quote: Originally Posted by Capt.Jack Sparrow

Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation.

I have an Optiplex 9010 AIO. This morning I was trying to update the BIOS of my system, from A10 to A13. During the update process it showed an error: "ME FW Update Failed: Internal error: FWU_Buffer " - please see the photo below. Although the update failed on the Management Engine part, it still boots up and running OK. I tried couple of times to update the BIOS, and each time I got the same error. I tried to flash the A12 and A11 BIOS as well, A12 gives same error, and A11 has the same Management Engine version hence no use.
Any help on this is very much appreciated!

I moved into a city that has 1gbps fiber and I got it. I set my computer up to run Ubuntu or Windows 7 in the Ubuntu OS I have full speed, like 980mbps but in Windows I can only get around 370mbps, they informed me that it was a know issue which is why they carry around laptops with Ubuntu instead of windows to troubleshoot there system. Anyone have any clue on this, I cant even imagine where to start looking for the setting or fix. Thanks

1gbps is fantastic. I suspect the Windows problem is a driver problem. Did you check the Windows 10TP. Maybe they fixed it. But then, the really big chunks you can always download with Ubuntu. I envy you, LOL.

Only had this new pc a few weeks and it is so slow now after 3 blue screen of death crashes that caused this I think, I believe firefox caused. I am not sure how to read dump files to show you details of the BSOD. I am including details of my PC along with the hijack this log, my system is clean though according to antispyware and virus scans.


I installed 64bit before this 32bit one on another partition of this HDD but cannot boot into it anymore at startup because this PC won't let me select it because it does not detect my keyboard in DOS mode for some weird reason.

I found this helpful information on possible solutions, very familiar with errors on previous Microsoft operating systems.,enI uninstalled one of the suggested updates and so far it is fine, the update was only optional so no security threats. I think it has helped, not certain if it will be like a fresh install because windows is slower than it was two weeks ago. If 3 weeks is best windows can handle for being ready for a new install I may have to go back to Linux. I hope this thread can stay on this forum somewhere to help others follow the link I posted above for possible solutions to this problem, it will save them time and effort trying numerous things.

I recently upgraded my internet service and found that speed test results from and were giving me download results that were ~ half of what I was supposed to be getting ( 9Mbs vs 16Mbs). I called the ISP and they suggested I restart in safe mode w/ networking and run the tests again. I did and the results of the test were surprising. I was getting the 16Mbs download speed that I signed up for. The tech suggested that I may be infected with something. I run several free programs (Mbam, avg, avast, ect.) to try to aviod these things, but it seems as though something may have gotten through. Any help that you guys may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Btw, no error messages and I am running Windows XP. Thanks in advance.

My computer was running just fine til about a week ago. I am on a secure network that was before yielding 1/mb/sec download speeds on wireless router. I have tested the network on my laptop and it still runs just fine, however my desktop has become sluggish, the download speeds are down to 30kb/sec and the search function has been taken over by "" that Malware Bytes has failed to find. Today the internet would simply die and not reconnect, or my browser would redirect to dead sites. The CPU on any processes doesn't seem high, but my computer is screaming like it's running several programs at once. I am using Vista, all updates installed that are available and needed.

Bootsector write
Virus : Y/N

When I press Y or N nothing happened and all I can see is only black screen. I tried to boot it from window XP installation CD but my guess is boot priority is not set for CD ROM. I cant even change boot priority now because there is no way I can go to set up screen.

Could anybody please suggest me what can I do now in this situation

Welcome to TSG.

You will have to get the model and make of your motherboard and check online to see how to reset the BIOS (there is usually a dip switch). Once that is done, then you can reset the BIOS settings for your boot order, HD and date/time, etc. Some MBs reset the BIOS automatically when the battery is removed, some don't reset it fully.

The Rosewill card's transfer rate is "up to 1.5GB/s." The WD hard drive's is 3.0Gb/s. Perhaps if you set the jumper on the 5-6 pins to activate the 1.5GB/s rate per this instruction: Western Digital.

Hello, I just got this x360 Spectre i7 15.6" laptop and I love it, except for the speed at which things load on the browsers. I have high speed internet and ran a speed test and the speed is as it should. I've tried multiple browsers, and even though I have a very strong connection to my high speed internet, it takes forever to open up even a single website. I regularly wait anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes for the site to load. I just got this computer so haven't even saved any files or installed any programs onto it besides anti virus software. How can I resolve this very slow loading time? I'd hate to have to return this computer, but cannot stand to have to deal with these frustrations with a computer I paid $1300 for!! Please help! Katy

Through the windows experience im at 7.8's / 7.4's... with my hdd at 5.9. looking at getting a ssd to level everything up.... but what i dont know is... how does the read/write speeds translate into processing.

what read speed is equal to the rest of my rig? I just dont know how it translates iops/1GB's read/write to GHz proccessing.
The giving data speed to proccessing speed

Phenom x6 @ 2.8
6GB RAM @ 1600
HD 6870 GPU.

good video showing new revodrives coming.

A:Computer Bottleneck- HDD - SSD. giving data speed to proccessing speed

Here is an As SSD for my WD1002FAEX 1TB sata 6GB/s mechanical hard drive

Here is the same test on my Intel 80GB X25 M

For an OS drive the advertised speeds really mean nothing to the average user unless you are going to be transferring large files all day. The most important thing is access time- how long it takes from the time you push the button until the application actually opens. No spinning circles with a good SSD.

Hi; I have a Dynalink router and on plan which I get really nice speeds for me (downloads a few megabytes a second), using Windows XP via ethernet.
However as soon as a laptop is also plugged in also via ethernet and streams videos, the internet on my Windows XP computer is so slow, web pages can barely open.
Is there anyone to somehow make both of them at least able to both use the internet? What's the problem? Thanks in advance for any help

A:Internet Speed; Fast but as soon as shared, drops down to unusable speed

However as soon as a laptop is also plugged in also via ethernet and streams videos,Click to expand...

sounds like the laptop is hogging all the bandwidth

what speed do you actually have - via ?

what happens if the laptop is connected and not streaming videos - it may also have a number of downloads - updates running in the background

I was told by somebody here with VIP badges that I should not post here how to make Firefox run more smoothly in a Virtual Machine in Linux. It should be in a Linux forum. So I moved it there.

Hi all,
I want to connect my VCR to the computer to transfer old home movies to DVD.
The Analog to DV device requires a 1 GHz processor. Mine is 498 MHz.

Regarding the speed, will the device work only slowly or not at all?


A:Solved: Video capture device speed vs. processor speed

It is not a matter of slow or not at all. It is most likely a matter of dropped frames. If you have a cheaper video capture card [one without hardware decoding] it will probably work however you will not like the result.

Video editing / encoding is cpu intensive. I would hate to think how long it would take to encode the video file after you capture it [with that cpu]

To give you some idea, it takes me about 15 min to encode approx 1hr of video with an intel dual core cpu. With yours it will be hours.
