I had a windows problem so I decided to repair it using the windows xp disc. After reparation, everything was normal, yet when i right click properties on my computer, my AMD Athlon™ II X3 435 processor shows that it is at 735 MHz. It's supposed to show that it is 2.9GHz. When I go do dxdiag, it shows that the processor is at 2.9Ghz. So, i don't really know whats going on. I don't know which one i'm running at. But, if anyone know whats the problem please help me.

EDIT:

Whenever i right click properties "my computer" the pop up box keeps showing that it's at 735 MHz and then when I close it and right click properties "my computer" again, it shows that it's at 1.68 GHz and it will show that it is at 2.90 GHz too. It keeps switching everytime i do the same process. And btw, my gameplay in games has been slowing down alot.. Could this be the cause of it? I'm sure nothing is wrong with my graphic card and the drivers.

This is the effect of Cool & Quiet. The fluctuating processor speed figure is normal behaviour for AMD processors. Do something intensive with the machine and the speed will return.

Okay, can you give me examples?

Convert video, audio, play games or anything strenuous like that.

Well, i was experimenting with this and I decided I should probably uninstall my prcoessor. So i got my motherboard disc and chose the processor driver. It told me if I wanted to uninstall it, and I clicked yes. After a reboot, i checked the speed of my cpu and it said it was at 2.90Ghz. So, I don't know what the problem was but I'm glad that my speed is back. Also, my game plays returned to normal. No frame lags whatsoever. :D
