Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Acer 5100 / AMD Turion 64 MK36 clock speed at 797 Mhz.

\015 Our Acer 5100 has the AMD Turion 64 MK36 processor. The problem we are having is VERY poor response times. For instance, when playing a DVD the CPU utilization on TASK MANAGER for the DVD process is sitting at 85-95% CPU. I checked the properties of My Computer the processor clock speed shows to be 797 MHz!!! According to the doc for the PC it should be at 2 Ghz.\015

My wife has an Aspire, and it also runs at 797 (1.8ghz). I was told by Acer that it was in power-save mode, so I reset to no power-save.
This worked until the laptop was re-started, at which point it returned to 797....
I have not yet been able to completely solve the problem.
