I recently brought a laptop from a UK manufacturer. The processor inside is an AMD Athlon 64 3400+ (agreed on by Windows XP Home Edition) however, all checks that I run on it (not the unreliable properties of 'My Computer'
including System Information (MS) and CPU Speed (third-party) and the Linux Kernel report that it's running at 800 Mhz instead of 2.2 Ghz.
Is this a problem with the laptop itself, a configuration problem, or a reporting error from /all/ involved systems?
Thanks in advance,
-- Edit --
By the way, the Windows Ive just discovered I can force to be faster by turning the power management off with a downloaded tool. However does anyone know of a method of turning off the power management for Linux?
