I have this processor in my HP laptop and I am having a problem. IT works fine when it is plugged into the AC for power, but when I am running on batery power it is very slow. I was told by HP that this is how the processor works. Is there anyway that I can fix this. I hate it when I am trying to watch a video, but the video and audio willnot sync up.

Usualy on your Laptops Power Settings...you can change how the processor will work at diferent power states.
For example...when your Laptop gets a signal the the battery is low...it automaticaly set your CPU at lower speed (underclock it) to save you power and give you more battery time...How much it will underclock and when...you can set it your self on your power options...
I own a TOSHIBA so I dont know about how HP calls its Power Settings program...or how to use it...but you can find those on your manual

Get into the Bios and you can shut off Speed Step
