I have a computer purchased from home shopping network about 4 years ago. It has a 2/300 mhz processor. For some reason the processor is running at half speed..only 300 mhz. I have upgraded the memory to 354 mb. The ram is sd100. the processor is 2.4volts. How big of a processor can I just plug in? Should I get a motherboard/processor combo? Thanks......Russ
Your CPU is NOT running at half speed. A K6-2 300MHz runs at 300MHz. It depends on your specific mobo and chipset, what's the fastest CPU you could use...if you post your mobo's manufacturer and model, i might be able to tell you what's the fastest CPU you could run.
If you can spare a bit of extra cash, tho, i would recommend you get a whole new mobo, CPU and RAM. For example: Athlon XP 2500+ Retail(with HSF) - 90$ Abit NF7-S - 100$ 2x Kingston HyperX 256MB PC3200 - 116$ (58$ per stick) Total: 306$(all prices from newegg.com)
