Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9300 PC Notebook ?

2 ghz processor running at 220 mhz

\015 My three-year-old Inspiron 9300 (running XP) has a 2 ghz processor, as shown in the setup screen and in the Control Panel/System Properties/Hardware/Device Manager/Processor listing. Running Belarc Advisor on it on Dec. 26, 2008, showed the processor running at full speed.When the fans started running continuously and loudly, I opened the machine and cleaned out all the lint that had collected around the fans. After putting the machine back together, I decided to run the utility to restore the computer to factory settings.In reinstalling software, I found the machine took over an hour to reinstall MS Word 2007 and 45 minutes to install a printer. So I ran Belarc again. Even though the setup screen and the device manager still list the processor as 2 ghz, Belarc now shows it running at 220 mhz.So since the machine wasn't getting warm on the bottom, I ordered new fans and replaced them, thinking that the cpu fan not running at full speed might make the cpu slow down to protect it from heat buildup. Nothing has changed - still running at 220 mhz and the cpu is 100 percent being used most of the time. Nothing that needs much processor speed will install.\015

Answers :

Hi,

Have you tried right clicking on the desktop (opening Display Properties), clicking on Screen Saver tab, Clicking the Power button, and setting the power schemes to Home/Office Desk? If its set on laptop it will reduce the processor speed when running on battery. I have noticed that even with it plugged in that some times it will run at half processor speed. Try that out.

Have a great day,
