Not to offend anyone who posted responses, but please read the *entire* question before responding. There have been too many posts lately which completely negate the original question...

i do not wish to use the bios.
when i go to the properties of my computer i only get the type of processor and not the exact speed.
also, i do not wish to use any 3rd party programs.
In response to your question: I would recommend either Microsoft Diagnostics (msd) or System Info (sysinfo), as some others have recommended. You may also want to try DirectX Diagnostics (dxdiag), but I woud personally just go with sysinfo.

To those who gave those suggestions, thanks for reading his entire post.
