I am trying to help a friend determine if an old IBM Thinkpad 560 is worth upgrading for use. One important piece of info I need is to find the clock speed of the Pentium processor. When I go into the Control Panel and look at the system info, all it shows is "Pentium processor".

Can someone please tell me how to find the specific clock speed of the processor in Windows 95?

Thanks!

Sometimes you can get that info from the DirectX Diagnostic Tool.

Go to Start/Run and type in:

dxdiag

There is no dxdiag file on my hard drive. Have searched everywhere. Any other suggestions?

To find out how fast the processor is, while in Win95/98,

Go to Accessories / System Tools / System Information
Click on Tools
Select Windows Report Tool
Click on the blue Change System File Selections towards the bottom of the window

I believe the processor speed for that model is 200 MHz or 233 MHz.
