Black Gateway screen Help


I had a problem starting up from the black screen. I went the route of restoring the laptop not know of a possible "common" problem. The following is what I used for my system restore to get my laptop running, perhaps by following the steps to change the bios it might also fix your problem. If anything it doesn't hurt to try at this point.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Cubase 4


During your computer's boot sequence, watch for a notice telling you which key to strike to ENTER SETUP. This will take you to your BIOS management. Find and disable Intel SpeedStep, C1E, or EIST, or related PowerNow! settings on AMD processors. These power saving settings are designed to slow down or shut down one or more cores of multi-core processors during times when the operating system thinks that the processing power is unnecessary, but running advanced DAW software such as Cubase draws power at very near the full system capacity, and it takes a long time to reboot the temporarily suspended processor cores. During this core reboot lagtime, Cubase is often deprived of the processing power needed to route audio signals through its complex internal bussing system (Steinberg's patented VST system link), and this power loss causes it to crash. If you disable the SpeedStep settings in your BIOS, you may notice a very gentle rise in your electric bill, as your computer's processor will be running at full capacity all the time, but you can always re-enable SpeedStep when you're not planning on recording anything.

My pentium d 925 3.0 4m/800 processor decrease its core speed


It is absolutely normal if the processors speed and multiplier fluctuates. It doesn't mean that the processor is damaged. This technology is called Intel Speedstep. When your processor is not used on 100% it reduces its speed, so the power consumption decreases. When you need more power, the processor will automatically clock itself to higher speed.

for more information check here.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpeedStep

If you want to turn off this feature, you have to do it in your motherboards bios. You can find it in advanced ---> cpu settings ---> Intel Speedstep, you have to choose Disabled.

Thats all
