hi there folks,

could someone please shed light on this
confusing issue.

i have this system which on bootup,
displays the text: intel celeron 667MHz.

now, when i check my computer
properties, i then see: genuine intel X86
family 6 model 8 stepping 6.

in sys information, it reads intel(R)
celeron (TM) at 667MHz,
under the direct X diagnostic menu,
system information reads processor: intel
pentium lll 666MHz.

folks, enlighten me.

what brand of processor do i have

You have an Intel Celeron 667MHz
BIOS (bootup) and Sys Info are accurate.

This is a intel celoron running at 666.6 Mghz. The procecor it's self may be over or under clocked. with out opening the computer you have found all the ways to Identify your CPU. If you wish to go a step further if you have a socket 370 celloronyou can remove it and look at the bottom side. The speed will be writen on it mixed into the numbers.

No doubt you have an Intel Celeron 667. The problem your encountering is just an Operating System problem. In Windows 98 first edition; in fact you will see Pentium II instead of Celeron. But in Windows 98 SE this has been corrected. The troubleis that the hardware development is faster than the software. In using new OS be sure to use the latest Service Pack and the chipset's drivers must be properly loaded.
