    CPU Frequency Test Failed!!! Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6700 @ 2.66GHz.


      Hello all. I have an old pc with specs....


      Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

      4.00GB Dual-Channel DDR2

      Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. 945GZM-S2 (Socket 775)

      512MB ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series


      Until yesterday i had intel core 2 duo 4400 cpu but a friend of mine gave the 6700 because he doesn't need it. From gigabyte site i saw that 6700 is supported for my motherboard. So i removed 4400 and carefully cleaned my heatsink, intalled 6700, after that thermal paste - connected the cables and turned on the pc. At first i didn't realize any difference but after a while i noticed that it takes longer for the programs to open or surfing online. I used heaven benchmark and my score was way less that before so i said something wrong and i started to read forums. Anyway i installed Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool (64bit) and started the test. No matter how much times i tested it it keeps failing at CPU Frequency Test.


      Ps I already disabled EIST (speedstep) but no difference. And i set minimum and maximum power option to 100% but still no luck.


      I now that this is an old pc but can't afford to buy new at this point. i will appreciate if you could help me and sorry for my English.
