Intel Speedstep is throttling the processor to save power. You likely have to adjust the power management settings to ALWAYS ON to keep the processor from throttling down.

Hi,I have a Dell Latitude D600 which the temp are always at 85.5C(mobmeter,ig8kfan). The fan was running high all the time n the speed is just 600mhz instead of 1400mhz whatever i do.(Prime95,Dell Xp...

don't worry most laptops nowadays run hot. your CPU will shut itself down long before damage occurs. try elevating your laptop to promote air circulation or place it on a cooling mat.

Be careful if you set it on your lap, some people have had minor burns from laptops setting on their laps for prolonged periods.

I have Hp Compaq nc6220 it works on battery with good speed but when i plug in adapter it works very slow

The only thing I can think of that would do that is if the power setting are messed up. There are different levels of power settings you can choose. Normally on the battery it runs the CPU slower, the screen less bright and so on to save power and make the battery last. It almost sounds like the full power mode or the adaptor mode is using the battery or extended power settings.

What you can do is look under control panel for the power settings icon or right click on the battery or the power plug by the clock and then adjust properties. Look for the tab or pull down that says A/C power or Full power or something like that. Then you need to go to the settings section for the cpu and cooling. Those are the two that have to be adjusted together. Depending on the software controlling you will either see a min/max setting or something that says cpu speed. Just adjust the max to 100% or set the cpu to variable. You can set it to max but that runs fast all the time and is noisier than it needs to be as the fans will always be running harder. And double check that the cooling settings are set to variable as well. Once you save or apply the settings your laptop should be much faster. There is a chance there is a setting in the system bios that is set to slow cpu but that is supposed to be over ridden by the windows software.

Anyway thats about the only thing that I can think of that would do this.Once you get the speed sorted out you can use the same panel to tweak the battery portion to run slower and not use as much power. If the cpu is allowed to speed up and down it only uses more power when you run more so it can slow down when its not needed. Think of this just like a car going up and down a hill. Power to go up then coasts down.

I do not know which model of compaq deskpro I have, But I have used a couple ram cards from another compaq... it increased the ram but the video(from youtube for example) freezes... what can I do to fix it...

If you added more ram to the computer that is a slower speed, the memory will run at a lower speed overall. Even if one stick is faster, they will run at the speed of the slower memory. I would check that. Sometimes it slows your computer down to increase the ram if you decrease the speed.
If its the same speed, you can usually increase your video dedicated memory in the BIOS settings.
Good Luck!

Processor speed

There is a SpeedStep hot key that you can toggle and a speed step utility if you have not installed it. Dell support has the utility and instructions as well as a manual to explain when the default is active.

Dell d600 power issues

The problem is in either the power lead from your powerpack or in the connector on the motherboard itself.
In this case I would say it's in the powerpack.

Dell use a smart power supply system that talks to the laptop to say if it is a genuine part or not.

If you look at the plug you will notice something strange about it.
There are actually 3 layers in there (well sort of)
You have the outer layer, then inside you will see a pin. There is another layer that is wrapping around the inside of the plug that is a mirror of the outer layer.

The wire that connects to the centre pin is not power, but the smart pin. The wire can easily break off that pin and just sit inside the cable.

Try it with a known good adaptor, or just get another one.
