It should run at around 1467 Mhz. To speed up the system you might try going into the Bios and altering the Bus frequency to 133 MHz and the clock multiplier to 11.

Well. How exactly is it running slow? I was fine with a 600mhz Pentium III. 512mb of RAM is a must. Oh it is painfull trying to get by with anything less.

Try clearing out the programs that are loading in your taskbar, next to the clock. Then make sure there is no Viruses, spyware, or adware on your system.
