The new BIOS (Phoenix-Award and possibly others) they only incorporate an option that will not be very useful to increase the yield, if we are going to use our PC with applications Windows, since the trick can give problems us if we executed programs based on MSDOS. In the same way that Windows XP allows us to define the compatible emulation with the clock of the hardware for applications MSDOS (right button of the mouse in direct access, properties, program, outposts). To activate the compatible emulation what does is to reduce the speed with which the clock of the equipment sends timing signals when communicating with the hardware. Since the programs based on MSDOS were not designed thinking about so fast speeds of processor.
The present BIOS come formed to the minimum speed indeed by subjects of compatibility, the faster is the processor the faster are the signals between the hardware and software, which allows that the programs based on Windows work with greater effectiveness. Soon what we must do is to increase in the BIOS the speed of the clock of the CPU that by defect comes so formed to the minimum by compatibility questions and as we have explained and that we can increase to obtain but yield. Like doing it? (Example Phoenix-Award Bios) When starting the computer we will accede to the BIOS pressing (Supr., Del.) or another key according to manufacturer.
Once it appears the first screen of the BIOS we will accede to the option: – Frequency/Voltage Control (to see if a day they make a BIOS Castilian that already touches …..), we pressed Intro and we will accede a: – CPU Clock we must here be able to select I number that it will depend on our version of BIOS but that will oscillate between 200 – approximately 300 so to greater number greater yield. In this example by defect it put 200 and the admitted maximum was of 233, so we put 233 (using sign + of the numeric keypad we increased the value) and to fly. All the BIOS are different but yours it has this option and SINGLE you use programs based on Windows these of luck your PC will go to the 100% after activating this trick, like not of the factory Ethek & Friends.
