Thread: Laptop question..




  1. #1

    Default

    I have a HP laptop (AMD1800+) and theoretically it should be running about 1.5Ghz or so? According to the system properties its only going 670mhz. Is this normal with laptops? Is there a way to speed it up a bit?

    check the bios, the fsb may have been reset at 100 mhz instead of 133
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    OK the bios that I can access doesnt have the FSB choices on it. Its a HP ze4315us if that helps. The HP/Compac site is no help whatsoever.

    I think it only goes full-speed if you use a CPU-intensive programs. It's called "speed-step" technology, but I thought it was only for Intel?

    Yes AMD have a similar technology also (though I can't think of it off hand though atm) plus whether bein' on mains or battery power makes a difference too.
