Dell latitude D600 CPU issue

\015 I have a 1.89ghz intel pentium M 750 cpu chip in my laptop, and it will not read more than 1.40 top speed. I ran the intel ID utility and expected is 1.89ghz but it only registers 1.40ghz. The expected system bus was 533 but reported was only 400mhz. I have the latest bios for the mother board so it is not that. It is not the CPU because I pulled it out and put it in another laptop of mine and BANG it reads at 1.89ghz. Can anybody give me an idea of why the latitude is not reading the full speed? Oh and FYI, I had a 1.8ghz pentium M in the lap top before hand and it also ran at only 1.4ghz.\015

Answers :

Is Speedstep installed? This is a utility that adjust the clocking of the CPU. If it is not installed, you can download it from the Dell support site. After you install it, run it and set it to max performance when plugged in to AC power. The stepdown for battery use will slow the CPU to aboout half, but extend the battery life.

Also try running diagnostics to see if there is an error. Hold the Fn key down when you start the laptop. It will test the system and alert you to any errors.

Good luck and let me know how it turns out.
