What are the CPU settings in your BIOS? Do you have it underclocked for minimun noise and fan speed? The athlon 64 3500+ is supposed to clock in at 2.2 Ghz.

is this a laptop or desktop? if its laptop, open the bios, more than likely its on power saver mode. runs the cpu slower and screen darker to save the battery

nice one mr. rae dont explain it in detail. Basically hes got a Compaq desktop PC and it has Cool and Quiet enabled and there is no option for disabling it in the BIOS. I reckon he should get a new motherboard because there is no BIOS for that motherboard to disable it (well only a really bad BIOS with no options for the CPU).

Cool & Quiet slows down the speed of the processor when it's not doing anything intensive. Therefore if you was to do something heavy with the computer, such as a game or something that requires a lot of processor power, your Athlon 64 3500 will speed itself up automatically. This is a feature of this type of processor. There is nothing wrong, its supposed to do that.
