Having problems with your Intel (P42000400512SK478) Pentium 4, 2 GHz Processor ?

My Pentium 4 2.4 GHz processor is running at only 1.9 GHz. The bus, supposed to be running at 800MHz, is running at 398. The motherboard is Dell Optiplex GX260. Can someone please help me speed up my processor?


Answers :

In the BIOS-setup, normally you can adapt the bus speed. as it's running at about 400mhz, i suppose it's set to auto. within the advanced system settings, you should be able to set the bus config to manual and then you can choose the appropriate bus speed below.

How do i change the memory bus speed on my dell optiplex 170l? The CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.4GHz. The mother board processor speed is 400MHz and the Bios indicates a memory bus speed of 266MHz and does not seem to have an adjustable option. If the CPU can run at 400MHz then why can't I get the memory bus to run at 400MHz? Origanuly this system was shipped with 2 X 128MB 333MHz DDR CL2.5 Non-ECC DIMM modules and yet the bios indicates memory speed at 266MHz.
