Bought a brand new Compaq Presario AMD Sempron 3500+. Has an ATI Radeon Express card integrated. I am updating the card, but when I go to scan my computer with processor tests, it fails. It states that I am running a 995. ghz I have had the processor tested at Nvidia, microsoft and PC tools, they all say I am running a laptop or unknown external. I have 1 gig ram, and just want to run the latest games, (mostly oblivion). I own a Compaq Presario 1720NX. I had to send back a Nvidia 6500, because it caused my brand new computer to fail. SO my question is. are those tests reliable? Is my processor bad? can I run new games on my computer?. Please use simple language. I'm a grandma and need things simple. Thanks so much.

Welcome to G2G wintermoon

I have to be absolutely honest, I am slightly confused as to exactly what the problem is, so can you do this for me please....

Click on the link below & download SIW :

This is a system information tool. Once downloaded, can you install it & run it. When it opens to the main screen, click on the File menu, then on Create Log File.

This will create an HTML log. Please email it to me as an attachment, but do not post it on the forum. This log will give me a better idea of exactly what is going on in terms of the hardware in your system.
