NegativeSpace Posted April 2, 2012 Share Posted April 2, 2012 (edited) I've got this older machine that has been much slower than normal in the past 6 or so months. I opened it up and found that 2 or 3 capacitors are bulged and slightly leaking liquid. Is there any evidence or reason to believe that this can definitely cause a processors clock speed to be lower than its intended speed, and also to be reported as such in Windows? The processor is factory rated at 2.0GHz, and sometimes it is reported correctly in Windows but sometimes it is reported to have a clock speed of 1.8GHz.
