Not long after I installed SP2 I noticed that my clock speed had dropped off from 1.53 Ghz to 1.16 Ghz. This can definitely be a problem because Rome Total War no longer functions to its full glory and I am not happy. I went into the BIOS and fixed it somehow about 2 months ago, but then it came back a couple days later and I can't fix it again and I don't really remember how I did it the first time.

Here are the specs:
AMD Athlon 1.53 Ghz
512 RAM
XP Home (currently SP1)
Maxtor 80 GB HDD
and from what I can make out from the manual, the motherboard looks like a, and I quote, "7DX®+/7DXE AMD Socket A Processor Motherboard"
(sry, i'm not really an expert on motherboards)

anyone else having any such problems with SP2?

Strange...sp2 has no way of accessing the bios. Did you install any bios tools in windows?

I didn't install anything BIOS related that I know of. Idk if the problem is even BIOS related, or even SP2 related. I only know that these two things are involved in the solving of a problem that I had. I just know that I somehow fixed it once after I uninstalled SP2 and then messed around in the BIOS.

I think the two are unrelated. You may want to check with your compute rmanufacturer and see if there is a newer bios available that you can use.
