My PC Processor is an AMD Athlon 2400+. But since Chkdisc repaired some corrupted files it now says AMD Athlon 1800+. I had this problem before after my son reformatted my harddrive and the solution was to go into bios and change the default 100hz to I think it was 133hz. Can someone confirm this for me. Thanks again in advance.

Yeah, you should just overclock it to 133 and it'll be fine.
if u dont wanna go into the BIOS, i think there are online overclockers for Athlons.
(I remember having one on my 3000+)

Uhh I don't remember where to get one. But I think I downloaded mine on the drivers cd for my old Gigabyte NForce3 motherboard.

These are programs that will "soft" overclock your processor - by elevating the FSB outside of the BIOS screens. Search for CPU-Z on google -they've got a free one.

If you can tell us your brand and model of motherboard we maybe able to tell you the exact bios setting to get your AMD clocked correctly.

I bought this PC from MultiVision computers after it was voted best buy in PC magazine 3yrs ago. It originally came with a 5yr guarantee of which the first 3 were in house but approx 18mth after purchase MV went bust. It says on the purchase receipt it is a MSI KT4 V-L motherboard(KT400) 4x USB 2, LAN.

On the first page of the KT4V series users guide it says.
KT4V MS-6712 (v1.X)ATX Mainboard and under that it says Version 1.0 G52-M6712X1. hope this helps.

The day before yesterday I plucked up the courage and went into the BIOS and changed the setting from 100hz to 133hz saved changes and exited. It has now reverted to showing 2400+ as it did before the chkdisc scan. My PC is faster and doesn't seem to hang so much anymore. This seems to have solved the problem but appreciate your help/advice.

If it occurs again you may need a new battery for the motherboard. A weak or dead battery can revert your Bios settings to default.
