Question: A few years ago I had a Pentium II which said (under system info) that it was 400 MHz. However, after reformating it it said 350. ??? I had it reformated at a store which installed XP in the process (it was around October 2004) and they upgraded RAM. I do not know if they actually fooled me by replacing my processor with a slower one (which was still Pentium II), although that would have made no sense considering how old Pentium II computers were already, but I was wondering if it is possible for a computer processor to actually decrease in speed or if Windows system info page can mislabel a computer's hardware?

Maybe an underclock or something. I overclocked mine to over 450 MHz once.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

I wonder why would it self-underclock permanently, though, or why a store clerk would decide to underclock a customer's processor without permission, unless it was overclocked in the first place and the guy thought it would be damaging in long term?

It is possible it was slightly over clocked from the factory within operating specs. When they reset it, it's possible that  they didn't know what they were doing and set it to it's base speed(or whatever software they had did it automatically).

Oh wait it's possible to over/underclock certain processors even without hardware changes? But again the Nspire allows it though.

Indeed it is. Most processor have a certain range within which they can operate fine. AMD even allow you to change the settings yourself often times and has for quite a while. :)

Yeah, I am necroposting, but I have three reasons for that:
-that discussion is interesting
-it's been a year (hence the necropost) so people's computer may have changed so they might want to update their specs
-I got my laptop so I can post something here while I couldn't before (well I could have posted the specs from the desktop, but I have absolutely no idea what's in there)

So, my laptop:
GPU: Geforce GTX 780M 4Go
Screen: 15.6" FullHD 1920x1080 LED
CPU: Intel® i7-4700MQ 4x2 cores 2.4 to 3.4GHz, 6Mo cache, Video GT2 HD4600 VT-x 47Watts (Haswell)
RAM: DDR3 Sodimm 8Go (can be extended to 32Go but I don't need those for now)
HardDrive1: Samsung SSD 840 Pro Series 128Go
HardDrive2: unknown brand, but 1To and 7200rpm

(also, excuse me if I made any mistake on the name of something, or any other English mistake).

I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.
