Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I have a 1.89ghz intel pentium M 750 cpu chip in my laptop, and it will not read more than 1.40 top speed. I ran the intel ID utility and expected is 1.89ghz but it only registers 1.40ghz. The expected system bus was 533 but reported was only 400mhz. I have the latest bios for the mother board so it is not that. It is not the CPU because I pulled it out and put it in another laptop of mine and BANG it reads at 1.89ghz. Can anybody give me an idea of why the latitude is not reading the full speed? Oh and FYI, I had a 1.8ghz pentium M in the lap top before hand and it also ran at only 1.4ghz.
Is Speedstep installed? This is a utility that adjust the clocking of the CPU. If it is not installed, you can download it from the Dell support site. After you install it, run it and set it to max performance when plugged in to AC power. The stepdown for battery use will slow the CPU to aboout half, but extend the battery life.
Also try running diagnostics to see if there is an error. Hold the Fn key down when you start the laptop. It will test the system and alert you to any errors.
Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

Choose "System and Maintenance," typically located near the top left-hand corner of the Control Panel
Click to select "System" from the new list of options
Look for the CPU's stock speed as indicated under the "Processor" heading. This is a ballpark, relatively close estimate of your computer's CPU speed, as provided by the manufacturer.

Click the "Start Menu.
Right-click on "My Computer."
Select "Properties." By default the Properties window will usually be set to the "General" tab, but if the window is set to a different tab you'll need to click on the "General" tab located near the top of the window.
Check the CPU rating as listed underneath the "Computer" heading.
Determining Real-Time CPU Speed
Go to CPU Speed Professional's website (see Resources) and download "CPU Speed Professional."
While other free CPU clocks exist, many are beta programs with glitches and unwanted bugs. CPU Speed Professional is well-known and reputable, receiving the "Vista 5 Star Software Award" according to its website.
Install the recently downloaded

Open CPU Speed Professional.
Click "Test Your Speed" on the main program interface.

hope this helps
