    Thanks but i know this.. the problem is that once it slows down it does not get back up again and stays at 600 MHz no matter what i try.
    Have already set the min and max value of Processor Power Management to 100% in the Power Options.

    I HAVE A DELL D800 WITH A 2.0GHZ AND IT WON'T HARDLY DO ANYTHING. WHEN I GO TO WINDWS TASK MANAGER AND CLICK THE "PERFORMANCE"TAB IT SHOWS MY CPU USAGE AT 100%. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO FIX THIS? IT IS SOOO SLOW THAT I CAN'T HARDLY RUN A ANTI-VIRUS SCAN. ANY HELP WOULD BE GOLD.

    THANKS JIMMY

    I have changed the power settings to home/office, my processor throttle is set to none and my bios setting is still set 2ghz not compatiable and still my cpu is reporting at only 600mhz rather 2ghz on my d800 latitude? I do not know why it would change, no new motherboard, ran the diag tests and the fan is working normally. Help

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.

    There may be a processor speed setting in your BIOS setup. Make sure that it is NOT set to 'Compatible'.

What type of dual core processor can I use for my dc7600?


The motherboard for the dc7600 has an Intel LGA775 processor socket. However, not all LGA775 processors are compatible with the motherboard. For the small form factor, the following CPUs are supported: Intel Celeron D Processors:
Intel Celeron D 331 Processor (2.66-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 336 Processor (2.80-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 346 Processor (3.06-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB)
Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have a mainboard of model D845GVAD2------------------------AAC18931-104. It has already intall the Intel celeron processor of 1.8GHz. Now I want to upgrade my processor. So what high frequency processor...


Hello,
The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4 processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.

So you can install upto 3.06 GHz 533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz.
Dont install Prescott processor.
Hope it will help you.

Dell Latitude 1.6 GHz/512/40GB-processor speed seems to be stuck at 221 mhz regardless of what app I am running. Is there a way to adjust the speed of the processor? Or is the processor bad?


The processor is throttled by a process called speed step. This slows the CPU to save power. The same process is used when the processor overheats, and the system throttles to manage the heat production.
So the heatsink and cooling fan should be replaced as the first step in trying to resolve the process.

Pentium M 2.0 ghz if you update the bios. You would need Dell 600 Bios & that should be available on the Dell website under the support section. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Processor upgrade


Hi ryonsdad,

I checked out the Latitude D610 laptop, and you'll be glad to know that you have the following processor upgrade options:

1.) Pentium M 780 Processor - 2.26 GHz, 2MB, 780, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (fastest upgrade)
2.) Pentium M 770 Processor - 2.13 GHz, 2MB, 770, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
3.) Pentium M 760 Processor - 2.0 GHz, 2MB, 760, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
4.) Pentium M 750 Processor - 1.86 GHz, 2MB, 750, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
5.) Pentium M 740 Processor - 1.73 GHz, 2MB, 740, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (slowest upgrade)

You can buy these processors from Dell Spareparts or otherwise from a 3rd party store.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

New processor needed


Hi, For Dimension 3000 system here are your options. Pentium IV 3.2 GHz 533 / 800 MHz FSB Pentium IV 3.0 GHZ 533 / 800 MHz FSB Pentium IV 2.8 GHz 533 / 800 MHz FSB but what i'm worried about is the socket where the process goes into. for thermal issues it is expected for the socket to CHIP CREEP. Chip creep refers to the problem of chips that, over time, would work their way out of the socket. Chip creep occurred due to thermal expansion; the contracting and expanding during system heat up and cool down. you might end up replacing the mobo as well.

I have put a sempron 3.4 processor in but the system only recognises it as 2ghz ?


Your processor speed is actually correct AMD calculate the clock speeds differently from Pentium type processors, a 3400+ is a 2.0 GHZ processor, see the list below for speeds Sempron 2500+ 1.40 GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 2600+ 1.60 GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 2800+ 1.60 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3000+ 1.80GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 3100+ 1.80 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3300+ 2 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3400+ 2 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Don't worry too much about the proceesor not being recognised as long as you know it is running at the correct speed.
