\015 Hi! I have a sony vaio pcg frv25 with 2.66 processor... sometimes works in that speed and suddenly works at 700 or 366...is a processor problem?? do I need to change it?? or is a heating problem??\015

Answers :

2.66 ghz. is much to hot a chip for any Laptop.
\015\012The reason, I,m sure you know is the cooing factor.
\015\012With a unit that high in speed and temp., you will need a support base with a cooling fan to keep the unit at a stable temp.
\015\012I have a HP that came with a AMD Turion 1.8 ghz dual core processor and changed mine to a 2.2 ghz.
\015\012Unit runs very fast but over heating is always a problem.
\015\012The support base I picked up was about $30.00USD
\015\012and I still have to keep my eye on the temp.
\015\012Hope this has helped.
\015\012P.S. You may want to stop at your local Radio Shack and get a can of compressed air and blow out the fan a grill section. all in one word VENTELATION
Usually laptop motherboards have an instruction built in to regulate processor speed to save power. If you have all the original sony software installed, there is power feature to disable this, however, it will drain the battery when operating unplugged. This feature can be found in the lower right hand corner next to the clock on the taskbar. It be labled Sony Power Management or something similar. Open it and find the option to set processor to maximum performance.
