Okay I was following this guide to help overclock my computer so when I was in what I think was the BIOS, I was screwing around with things while looking for something. I think when I set things to optimal settings, I lowered my cpu speed. Now instead of its normal 1.67Ghz, its now 1.25Ghz. What the hell man? BTW this guide was in the magazine uuhhh I think it was Maximum PC

The reason for me screwing with things was that I didn't have as many menus as I think I was supposed to have so I thought setting things to optimal settings would be a good idea and restore the menus or something...damn i suck

i think putting it to optimal made ur FSB lowered w/c wen multiplied to ur multiplier equal to ur cpu speed. find FSB in bios and adjust it to 133mhz or higher depending on ur motherboard. r u using AMD? ur CPU speed is d same as my other PC

If this was a factory set processor. Putting the motherboard battery for a couple of minutes should reset the processor to the original speed. Other than that I will recommend caution when you adjust you CPU clock speed. You could very well damage you processor if you over clock it too much. Once damaged there will be no repairing it.

yes that ur FSB. u can find it in the BIOS, in (CPU voltage / FSB). look for CPU FSB and adjust it to 133 mhz by pressing + sign. this is also the part wer u can overclock ur system by adjusting it to a higher value. then wallah save and exit. Optimal settings is like minimum of a safe value but u cannot utililies the full capability of ur CPU and MB.

Unless you know exactly what you're doing overclocking can result in your needing a new processor, a new motherboard or both.
