    Well, the other week I bought my mother a Celeron 1.7ghz. It would run fine. Then a week later, the hard drive died. So we replaced it and all, but then it started to run MUCH,MUCH, slower! In certain cases, even slower than her old computer, a P3 450!
    So I checked the BIOS, everything alright, 100mhz FSB.... and guess what? The multiplier was at 8.0!!! That's right. So I made it 17.0, and there. But now it's still a little slow... What could they have done to it? :cry:

    Could they have replaced a 7200rpm drive with a 5400rpm one?

    are you sure it's ment to be 100x17? it's probably ment to have a lower multiplyer and a higher FSB

    P4 Celeron's are 100mhz FSB (qpd 400mhz). The multiplier on a 1.7 is 17. He may or may not be sure, but he is right :)
