Re: core 2 duo only running at 997mhz at full load

Do you have a charged genuine battery installed and is the cpu operating at normal temps?

Your cpu will not operate at full speed without a charged battery installed this assures there are no voltage drops that can cause unstability and/or damage. A generic battery may work if it's properly designed.

Re: core 2 duo only running at 997mhz at full load

ps. your T2400 is a 32bit core duo cpu, not a 64bit core2 duo. You can upgrade to the core2 duo as long as you have a recent bios update installed.

I have a few of these chips and may have a T5600 if you're interested. I also have the top of the line T7600 and the popular T7200 if you want to add some performance. A T5xxx chip would be cheap, probably less then the postage, but if it was my laptop I'd want a T7xxx chip in it, they offer far better performance but either will give you ability to run 64bit windows versions.

Actually small lightweight items aren't that bad to ship, but I agree you're better to buy local if the part is available. 

 

Be sure to share your experience in the upgrade with the forum.
