When first running agames it does not find the correct spec for my PC and will not let me run at a high enough speed. I have a AMD 64 3700+ and it says it is only running at 1GHz. I've checked on the microsoft games advisor page and it shows the true speed.
Can any one help as I would love to play with better looking graphics

I have been told AMD run something called Cool'n'Quiet Technology built into some AMD processors, which, underclocks the processor to save power and generate less heat so the fans can run quietly. Is there a way to disable this on mycomputer.

Thanks for any help

Check your m-boards manual, you can disable it in the bios of the m-board.

then you could run cpu-z to check if it runs the correct speed.
