Question about Dell Latitude CPX Notebook

Processor id recognized as 498mhz instead of previous 648Mhz

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My computer right click on properties shows a 498Mhz processor now and it showed a 648Mhz processor always before doing microsoft updates. This was a corporation IT serviced laptop since new before I recieved it and they may have loaded or adjusted settings to allow it to be a 650Mhz not 500Mhz capable system. Nothing bad happened but I would assume that now since it shows that is is 23% slower for the processor isnt it going to operate 23% slower. I dont understand what got changed and need to change it back so it shows 650Mhz

    Does anyone know how a processor in a Pentium III laptop which shows in some data I've seen can be a 500Mhz/650Mhz in the same unit. I have seen some other data that shows 700Mhz/1.13Ghz for the same processor as well. Is there a set up procedure that allows one to select either or in this scenario. There must be due to mine changed from 648Mhz to 498Mhz after file alterations. Does anyone know how to set this or apply it ?

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.

PS

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.

My dell latitude cpx j650gt does not have recovery partition working and I neeed to restore it to factory settings. I do not have original OS discs as I bought it used.


You do know only certain models have an os image on their harddrive and it is this that is enabled with F9 whilst booting (or other key)Failing this you will just have to install from external Dvd/Cd rom etc-this is the fact.

Windows NT and WiFi????


You can put xp on with no problems - i'm writing this on a cpx with just 128mb RAM and XP. But when you try to use any anti virus you may find it runs very slowly. I'd recommend getting xp and maybe trying a processor friendly anti virus like AVG if you're planning to go online a lot. 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 .

External Toshiba 400GB HDD not recognized on my Dell CPx J650GT


New hard drives need to be formatted! So go into the control panel switch to classic view, ( if you are still using category view for the control panel ) open administrative tools, then open computer management. Next open disk management. In disk management your new drive will show as raw, you will be give the option of formatting the drive, select primary partition and format in NTFS.
This will then format the drive, when this has finished your new drive will appear in my computer.

Dell Latitude CPx H500GT fails when using 2x256 Mb memory in bay


If the laptop is in warranty, then dell will take care of it. Also, are the two ram sticks the same speed? mixing ram can be bad. also, goldmemory software is excellent for ram testing.
lastly, if there is a bios version that allows you to use both ram slots, use that bios. a newer bios is not always better.
