HI EVERYONE. WONDER IF YOU COULD HELP ME OUT!

IVE JUST RESTORED MY COMPUTER AFTER GETTING A NASTY BUGGER OF A VIRUS, WHICH DELETED MY IP/TCT DETAILS AND REDUCED MY CLOCK SPEED (I THINK). SINCE, RESTORING MY COMPUTER TO ITS ORIGINAL SETTINGS BY WACKING IN THE GOOD OLD RECOVERY CD, THE CLOCK SPEED IS STILL LOWER THAN IT SHOULD BE. I'V GOT A TIME COMPUTER 2600 AMD, AND WHEN IT STARTS UP IT SAYS ITS ONLY 1.15MHZ???
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Is the processor in your computer an AMD Athlon?

HI,

YES I THINK IT IS. ITS A AMD ATHLON 2600, RUNNING XP HOME EDITION. I'VE GOT NO IDEA WHY ITS RUNNING AT 1.15 WHICH I SUPPOSE IS LIKE HALF ITS NORMAL SPEED? NOT SURE WHETHER I SHOULD TRY AND ALTER IT MANUALLY IN THE BIOS OR WHAT?? VERY CONFUSED INDEED.

MANY THANKS

If you can, I would go into the BIOS and manually set it. If you have an AUTO setting for the CPU speed try that first. When I first got my old Asus A7V266-E, it would do the same until a few bios updates later.

I would look in your motherboard manual for the settings. If you don't have the manual, check the motherboard manufacturers website and download it from there. You will most likely need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed to view the manual if you download it.
