Right when you boot up (although not necessarily when you restart your computer when it is already on)  one of the first things that will appear on your screen will be something like: "Pentium-MMX CPU at 233 MHz" or "Celeron MMX CPU at 300 MHz"

that is the speed of your comp.  Please note that some storebought computers do not show this screen, so you must go into your Setup utility and disable an option that is usually named "Silent Boot."

If you are unable to find this screen, please give me the make of your computer; maybe someone who has one of that type can give more specific details.

Regards,
Jeremy

LClos,

You can go here to download a diagnostic program that will ID your CPU & speed as well as test your entire system:
