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. http://support.dell.com/support/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn

How to change bois setting


Hi, Welcome to FixYa!

Please follow these steps,there are different way od going to BIOS depending on the brand of the laptop.
1 Turn on your computer
2 Hold down F2, this will take you into BIOS. On some computers it might be the DEL key, or F1.
3 Change the settings in BIOS to what you desire. You will see parameters for various devices, if your BIOS allows it, you can even overclock the CPU.
4 Look at the BIOS menu. You will be able to see the make, model, and capacity of your hard drive, processor speed, time and date, among many other settings.

Hi, i have dell inspiron 8600. It is working at 600 mhz but the processor speed is 1.6 ghz. The intel speed step utility is also enabled in the setup. Kindly help


The Intel SpeedStep Technology dynamically changes processor speed to help prolong battery life. If you want it to run at 1.6GHz all the time, you will have to disable it in setup.

RECOVERING GATEWAY LAPTOP WITH RESTORE DISC WE BOUGHT BUT IT FREEZES WHEN IT GETS TO THE WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION SECTION


I grabbed this from another site. It worked fantastic, give it a try and it might fix your problem, I know it helped me tones after spending nearly 2 days playing with a similar sounding problem as yours.

Gateway Laptop Freezes during System Restore
Had the same problem, turns out it's a well known issue to Gateway and Microsoft it's due to "SpeedStep" and it must be disabled. Here's the chat log with Gateway tech support:

do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.

2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.

3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.

4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.

5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit

6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.

7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.

8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.

Myself...I am not going to turn SpeedStep back on it caused me enough time and hassle that I don't want to take a chance that it will screw something else up.
Hope that helps anybody that finds this issue too. I got here by Googling but didn't find a fix anywhere on the net until I chatted w/ Gateway. And if the Laptop was not under warranty, they wouldn't have talked to me. Sad that it's a well know issues and one cannot even search their site for "a known issue"
Good Luck!
Mike

Can Windows 7 be installed on X05? I get ACPI incompatible BIOS and have updated to last known one. Please help!


The only issue i can see is if your your ram has not been updated since leaving the factory, you will notice from the tables W7 requires a min of 1GIG and your machine leaves the factory with 256mb(dependant on country possible) so check your ram. I run windows 7 on 2GB and its great, your machine will take 2GB. The Samsung X05 was released 2004 and the NVIDIA Geforce 4 should be fine. i would point out drivers and compatability but windows 7 so far is really good but driver support is crucial
hope this helps

Need 2 install the fastest PIII processor possible on CpxJ650GT


you obviously seem to have the adequate knolledge so why dont you overclock it...
overclocking used to be a touchy subject but know its undrstood that that it creates no problems..the chips are designed to be overclocked,in fact overclocked should now not be the trerminology for it ...it was called overclocking cos then it wasnt natural and created unstable systems ..now it is merely enhancing .

I am using 1.6 m d600 proceesor.its speed gets slower to 600mhz when i run it on battery.i have checked bios but i would not find any thing please help me out


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.

Dell Latitude D800 Processor slows down


This is the SpeedStep technology feature of your processor. It will speed back up to 1.7 GHz when it is needed. Slowing down the processor saves battery life.
