So i'm fixing my neighbors computer cause it's acting slow. I look at the specs and it's an Athlon 64 x2 4800+ (2.5GHz) with 2gb RAM and integrated graphics...it shouldn't be as slow as it is...I open CPUZ and it's running at 1GHz...even when it's scanning for viruses and goes up to 100% usage, it stays at 1GHz...200 FSB with x5 multipler...I know it's supposed to be at x12.5. It looks to be a custom built computer, could they have messed with the BIOS? Thanks

Can you go into CMOS and take a look at the BIOS settings?

Run prime95 and check it, you'll see it jump I should think.

Run prime95 for the last time, then watch it jump. Doing a scan like that won't max out your CPU like prime will.
