Hello everyone, name's Joshua Nickerson. Since I'm more of a straightforward person, I'll get straight into the problem I have. My computer runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.66 GHz. However, I've noticed that my games, alongside other processes have become, well, rather terrible. Things that used to run quite well no longer do so, and so I've come to seek help for this situation. Currently, my processor clocks at 1.6GHz, which is definitely not right in association with my processor's speed. I've ran games that should have easily pushed the potential speeds of the processor, but alas, no dice. The current motherboard I am using is a: MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL CO.,LTD and the system model is G31 TM-P21(MS-7529). CPU-Z states the socket of the processor is 775 LGA. I have defragmented my hard drive, cleaned things that would have taken up processor space, and have even gone through registry cleaning. Yet my processor still clocks at 1.6GHz. Trying to adjust core multipliers does not work for me as far as I can tell in BIOS. The minimum I can choose is 6, maximum being 8. I can over clock the amount of MHz from 200x8 to 210x8, and that's the least I can do. Anymore and overclocking fails for my processor. So I'm wondering if any one of you could help get my computer back up to speed so my games actually work optimally. Any help is appreciated and I thank you in advance. (If anyone needs my DxDiag, I can post that). *Edit* Few mistakes fixed.
