Dell Dimension 4400 recognizing a 2.4GHZ processor as 1.8GHz
Posted on 2007-08-12
I have a Dell Dimension 4400 with a P4 1.6 GHz processor. I had a spare 2.4 GHz P4 processor that I installed and it worked except that it detected the processor as 1.8GHz. Dell's technical specifications for this computer say that it is capable of recognizing P4 processors up to 2.4GHz, but I could not find any documentation on how to manually set clock speeds or even a diagram of the system board. Does anyone know how to get this computer to run at the full 2.4GHz that it should be?
