a MSI K8N Neo motherboard, with a Gig of RAM.
If I log in with the first user account I created in Windows XP the CPU
speed is correctly reported (by "My Computer"/Properties. MSI's Core
application and CPU-Z as 2200 MHz). However, if I login as the second user
account they all report that the speed is halved - by reporting a multiplier
of 5.0 instead of 11.0. Both accounts have full administrator rights at
present - the second account has been run as a limited user for a few
sessions, but has been switched back to administrator mode at present.
Sisoft Sandra reports the correct speed, and Benchmarks are identical so I
know that processor isn't really slowed down, but wonder if this is a
symptom of something more seriously wrong in my Windows installation.
Has anyone ever come across this before, and if so what can I do about it?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
