HP Pavilion TouchSmart 20-f214d
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am using ddr3L 1600mhz but when i check my ram speed at windows 10 task manager it says I am just using 1333mhz. It all started when I cleaned my computer this morning and found out that my cmos is dying and replaced new battery. 

Please help. Thank you

You're very welcome.

 

As I posted yesterday, the DDR3-1600 memory runs at 1333 MHz because that is the fastest speed your notebook can run the memory at.

 

This is taken right from your PC's specs page...There is nothing wrong with your PC.

Hi:

 

According to the specs for the processor your PC has, the processor only runs the memory at 1333 MHz, so cleaning the PC did not cause the memory to run slower.  It has always run at 1333 MHz.
