Ok so i recently put together one of my older computers and it has a Pentium 4 2.8ghz processor but it only shows at 1.4ghz during start up and when u look at the general system properties. Any ideas how i can fix it?
i did a bios update on my motherboard as well and it still is showing half the speed it should.

Motherboard is an ECS Elitegroup L4VXA2 if that helps at all...

Download CPU-Z. What does it say about the processor, the FSB and the multiplier?
