    Default New CPU installation Help!!

    I've just brought a new CPU for my computer. It's a Pentium 4 660 3.6ghz (you can check http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...px?id=62580215 for more info). Well, after finally getting it installed which was a mission in itself, it seems to make the computer runs slower. What am I doing wrong?
    The Original CPU and M/B can be found here http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...px?id=36216194. None of the BIOS settings have been touched and are still on default. Please Please help me!!!

    check jumpers/bios settings for any front bus speeds or multiplier settings.
    Is the total speed okay (check bios) ? Maybe your CPU is overheating and is automatically dropping its speed (i,e, heatsink, heatsink compound applied correctly, fan working okay ?)

    Is the processor correctly identified by the computer? Right click My Computer > Properties, CPU properties are displayed on the front page.

    If not correctly displayed it is a front bus / multiplier issue. If it is, maybe a heat problem as above.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche
