Default Processor Speed

When I go to System, in Control Panel, it says my processor speed is 351 MHz, sometimes 791 MHz. It shows up at those speeds even though it is a 1.8 Gig. Why is this?

It happened to my old pc a 1,1 Ghz duron, it when from 1.1 to 1.33 to 500Mhz I could no tstop it, but as long as it runs at 1.8 Ghz you should be fine, Does it, or is it slower, Also it could be cool and quiet maybe, It going lower if you dint need it that high like on my bros it can go down to 1.0 Ghz on his 3500+ AMD, But it should nopt effect your Control panel, Have you been messing around in the Bios???

No, and in my old Duron it did the same thing now to think of it. Although it runs a lot faster than it says in control panel.
