Ssystem information tool

As of March 24, 2004 we have decided to discontinue the development project that we all know as AIDA32. Development of AIDA32 has been started years ago, and the project went first public in April 2001. AIDA32 has become the de facto standard for both home and corporate system diagnosis and network audit, winning several awards including "Freeware Product of the Year" by Support Alert newsletter in December 2002.

You still download it from here

directx did not word in all cases, sometimes it would display all information except the clock speed. I would like the clock speed. Does anybody have any idea how to ensure that the clock speed is included. Is this a Windows setting?

The 'My Computer' properties have the same restriction (no clock speed). I have tried to check it out when the computer starts up but if it has a fast processor, this screen goes by too fast. Anyway to stop execution on that screen?

Go to the BIOS and disable all IDE devices from booting.  The screen will stick and either tell you that no boot devices were found or it will just stay.

Any one of those utilities I posted will show the clock speed.

BTW I have yet seen dxdiag fail to list the clock speed under the general tab.
