What is the make and model of your computer? Desktop or Laptop? How exactly did you change the frequency?

It is a Sony VAIO laptop. The Internet wasn't working so I was trying different things and it asked me if I wanted 2.5 or 5 ghz and I tried the 5. I have tried to find that screen for hours and I have no idea where I did it!!

Have you tried using System Restore to roll back to a date/time before you "changed the frequency"?

  • Click Start, type system restore in the Start Search box or Search programs and files, and then click System Restore under the Programs section.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

  • On the System Restore page, click Next.

  • Select a restore point that you know was before you made the frequency change, and then click Next.

  • If you are prompted to specify the disk to restore, select the hard disk on which the operating system is installed, and then click Next.

  • On the Confirm your restore point page, click Finish.

  • When the restoration process is complete, click Restart.
