Hi, I'm having a little trouble with my Mobile AMD Sempron processor 2800+ /mad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='mad.gif' /> . In my user manual my CPU should be running at 1.6 GHz.. In my system properties it says 800MHz - sometimes 1.6GHz Physical Address Extension, /huh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='huh.gif' /> . How can this be?
The CPU powers down to save battery when you arent running it to the full potential. Its normal. When you run a game or something that needs more CPU power, the speed will jump up to the full potential. But if you are just doing simple tasks such as web surfing, the CPU throttles down.
