Processor speed

By beth ·
Easy question-
Where do I go on my system to locate the speed of the processor? I know I have a Pentium III but don't know the size of the hard drive or the processor speed on this particular machine. Please advise.

If you are using WIN98 use the Delete key to enter the CMOS Control,you will find the processor and size of the hard drive in the configuration list.It will note the processor speed and the hard drive size

The Delete key does not take me into the CMOS. Esc, F2,F8 or F10 does not take me into CMOS or BIOS.

There isn't a good, (or any) way in Windows 9.x to find out the processor speed. The easist way I can think of is to shut your PC down, then restart it. When the PC starts to reboot, the BIOS screen (AMI, AWARD, whatever)will display the hardware specs for the box. It goes by fast, but you should see the speed displayed in there, (try pressing the PAUSE key when the screen comes up). For the hard drive, double-click on my computer, right click on the c drive, click on properties, and you'll getall the info on the drive. Good Luck....

Im not sure about on the local machine, but you can go to Intel, and download a small application called Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility. This will give you all the info of your processor: cache size, reported speed, expected, etc. To find it do a search
and in the field type

processor id

This will take you right to it. Hope this helps.

There are several ways to check your processor speed. Check out this web page, it tells you how to do it at boot, cmos, hardware (by looking at it) and via software you can download.

There are numerous programs out that tell you pretty much everything you would ever need to know about a computer. I like the Belarc Advisor (www.belarc.com) or SysID (www.sysid.subnet.dk) Hope this tells you what you need to know, JAKE
