Athlon X2 64 3800+ running slow

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a computer with an Athlon X2 64 3800+ and it runs very slow. When I checked the clock speed it was only running at 994 mhz even though the clock speed should be at 2.0 Ghz. Is this a software issue with windows (runnin XP 32bit) or is it a motherboard/processor issue?

I think that that means you have "cool 'n' quiet" on. Turining it off may solve this problem
