I wonder if someone could help. My Amilo A1650g with ML-32 processor (thats a 1.8Ghz) is only reaching speeds of 800mhz max. I've tried altering the power settings in the control panel to "Always On" but it still reads 800mhz. Also with this particular model there are no options in the bios for "power". Annoying! My real pain with all this is that photoshop cs2 does'nt work - processor maxs out! Is this related or is this another issue with this processor?

You need to have proper processor driver installed in windows which would allow power states transitions.
Check driver provider for your cpu in device manager - if it is Microsoft made than install AMD one which you can find on download page for your cpu:

http://www.amd.com/us-en/Proce...chni...1_13349,00.html

Your processor should allow next power states:

low (800MHz) 4x200Mhz 0.9V
mid (1600MHz) 8x200MHz 1.25V
max (1800MHz) 9x200MHz 1.35V

I also recommend to you to download AMD power monitor from download page so you could see how your cpu is changes states.

good luck!

Read your speeds with cpu-z, www.cpuid.com/cpuz and google for speedswitchXP to switch in speed easily during testing.

Same problem with Mitac 8355 (using InSyde 1.09 "Mobile" BIOS) and release version of Vista Ultimate (IA-32). My workaround solution was to use a 3rd-party RMClock CPU tool. Athlon 64 @1.8Ghz should have a Vista CPU score around ~3.7 (I used secondary reference from a working MSI 635 Turion 64 @1.8Ghz laptop).
You may have to set the multipliers and voltages manually.

For bypassing Vista start-up blocker nag, use "Task Scheduler" (in "Accessories"->"System Tools") to start RMClock.

In "General" tab, select Administrators group (used as an example) and tick "Run with highest privileges".
Set triggers "At log on".
Set Action "Start a program" e.g. C:\Program Files\RMClock\RMClock.exe -profile 3
In Conditions tab, make sure that the tick boxes for Power group are unticked.

I prefer AMD to provide a CPU driver for Vista i.e. for deployment.

PS; Mitac already gave up supporting Vista for Mitac 8355.
