    Core 2 Duo E7500 running slow

    Jesstaa

      G'day

      The other day I woke up and noticed my computer was on the startup screen, telling me it couldn't detect a CPU fan (You'd think if it was unable to detect a CPU fan it'd shut it's self off to avoid over heating =/).

      The concerning part of this, was the processor field which should've said "Core 2 Duo 2.93ghz" was reporting only 1.6ghz.

      I rebooted, no further issues with CPU fan (Even checked bios and all the settings were correct and fan was reporting a speed) but it still only reported 1.6ghz.

       

      Anybody know of a fix for this?

       

      Edit: The computer rebooted to install windows updates.
