CPU clock speed-- Pavilion Slimline Mod#: s5123w

My system uses an AMD Sempron 1250 CPU that has a maximum speed rating of 2.2GHz. However it never runs any faster than 1 GHz under any load or test conditions that I have tried. The Windows "Hardware Diagnostic Tools" test and the Norton diagnostic CPU tests produce the same results--always "current clock speed" of 1 GHz.


If my CPU is capable of running 2 times that speed I would certainly like to make it happen.


Some of the suggestions I have found on the internet recommend changing my clock speed in my BIOS.

I am running Phoenix BIOS Rev. 5.38  03/20/2009. I haven't seen any options to change the clock speed with this BIOS version.


Any help is greatly appreciated
