Help! How do I find out the speed of a PC?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Boy, does windows suck.

I'm currently auctioning of some PC from my old firm. So I need to know the mhz of the processors. But I just can't seem to find it anywhere.

Anyone know?

    If there are any microsoft office apps installed (Word etc) or Outlook etc, you can normally select the about option from the apps help menu and then click on the system info button.

    Alternatively, if you're really quick, you may be able to see the speed flash up on screen at the beginning of the boot sequence.

    When you boot up and it shows you the memory test and some gobblie-gook from the BIOS, it should also show the processor speed. If you press the "pause" button the computer will stop booting to let you read the screen. (Press return to continue)

    The Microsoft way will also work.

    EDIT: Sorry about that. I didn't read your full post. <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    In XP I right click My Computer, click Properties, and it's there under the General tab.

    AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+

    1.53 GHz

    512 MB of RAM

    MHz in sys profile only came out in XP... if you look around on like you can find some profiling utilities if you're pre XP.
