    How to decrease p4 speed to a 486 level?

    In my Win3.1 vm, screen savers run extremely fast.
    Is there a way to reduce its speed to match an old 486 machine?
    Thanks

    Um, why are you even running screen savers in any virtual machine?
    Obviously they aren't going to save the "screen" from burning in an
    image. They don't save power. And the screen saver you are using for
    your host OS is what gives you the lockout security for your host.

    If you are, say, allowing remote access to the VMs and are somehow
    thinking that a screen saver provides security, why are you wasting CPU
    cycles running a screen saver that has to compute an ever-changing
    screen? Just use the black screen saver. It runs at the same speed all
    the time: just a black screen all the time.

    During the VM's bootup and hitting Del to go into its BIOS, you will see
    there are no settings for changing the clock or multiplier on the CPU.
