when post screen appears you will have an option to enter set up, usually by pressing delete or F1, do this and look for your CPU speed in the setup screen, different for every BIOS but usually under 'CPU configuration' or similar. If you are not used to navigating the BIOS just make sure you change anything, or if you do accidently then dont save what you did, choose 'exit without saving' to get out of that set up screen If it is not listed, it isnt always, then you can get a diagnostic program like Sisoft Sandra, this will be available from different sites, for free, depending on where you live but do a google search for 'Sisoft sandra download' and you will find it. In some operating systems with some chips you can also just right click on 'My Computer' and go to properties and it will give you a brief system summary there, including chip speed, hope this helps, Mr C
