Question about Dell Latitude CPX Notebook
I own a Dell Latitude CPx J650GT laptop that I deleted cookies from using microsoft updates. I defragmented. I compressed all files using microsoft updates downloaded to make more room on the puny 13Gb hard drive and now the processor ID shows that it is a 500Mhz not 650Mhz. Is there driver or software deletion that caused this. No hardware failure has occurred and the above operations are all there is that is new that have occurred. I have seen this PIII shown as a 500Mhz/650Mhz processor in certain data and need to understand how it is both. Due to mine now being set at the 500Mhz and no longer the always previous 650Mhz. Please Help !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Signed Perplexed old school techy ! Thanks
The processor is adjustable to save power , press F2 when booting & change the speed there.

THE CPU IS TEST IN BATCHS OF 1000'S THEY WILL MAYBE PICK ONE OUT OF THE THOUSAND AND TEST LOOK A THE MAXIMUIM THE CPU FUNCATION AT THAN PICK A SAFE ALTERNATE SETTING OF MHZ FOR ALL CPU IN THAT GROUP, THAT ONE CPU MAY BE ONLY DEFAULTY CPU TO RUN AT 500 MHZ, THAT ONE HAS A PROBLEM IN THE CURCUITRY OF THE CPU, I WOULD RETURN IT TO WHERE YOU PURCHASED THE CPU AND EXPLAIN THE PROBLEM, INTEL ALSO IN THE CPU SPECIFACATION GIVE A TOLERANCE OF MAYBE 8-10%
ERROR ON ISSUES WITH THE OPERATION SPEED OF THE CPU, LETS SAY THE CPU IS RARED AT 500MHZ AT 1 % OPERATION SPEED IS WILL FAILURE OF 5MHZ, THAT CHIP IS STILL OKAY AND YOU JUST GOT THE RUNT OF THE LITTER.
NOW LETS SAY ITS RATE FOR 550 TO 600 MHZ THAN YOU HAVE A GOOD CASE ON RETURN BECAUSE THE FAULURE RATE IS TO HIGH ON THE % OF FAULTY REQIUREMENT,
I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND BASICLY HOW IT WORKS OR ASK SOME ONE AT INTEL TO EXPLAIN HOW THE FAILURE RARE ON CPU WORK.
THAT PRODUCT IS NOT WORKING RIGHT, HAVE THEM RUN THE TECHNICAIN TEST PROGRAM, OR CPU TEST RATE IS, OR DRIVE PRO, OR CHECKIT SOFTWARE, OR WICHECKIT, OR DIAGNOSTIC UTILITIES SOFTWARE, QAPLUSWIN, OR THE TROUBLESHOOTER PROGRAM ON THE MACHINE.
