Processor speed

2008-05-28, 15:28 PM
Processor Pentium 1.7GHz in my ThinkPad R32 is many time working only on 1.19GHz - notebook is conected on AC adapter. Changes in BIOS or in Control panel/System/Power options do not take effect. Could me somebody help, please?
Thanks Omniwriter

Welcome to the forum!
 
Your CPU has SpeedStep technology, enabling it to run at different speeds depending on power settings and actual needs of the machine. It is quite likely that you're not running any tasks that would require the CPU to run at full speed.
 
If you want to monitor this and adjust it even more than you already have, and are running XP, Google for a utility called "Speedswitch XP" and download it, it works very well on most machines that I've tested it on.
 
Hope this helps.
Cheers,

George
