Sony tech support, refused 2 show me how 2 reset the multiplier.apparently their firmware has a multiplier of 6x locked in.nowhere in the bios/cmos can it be changed.intel says its suppose to be a 9x multiplier 2 achieve the 1500mhz.why would sony throttle down a 1.5ghz rig to 997mhz?they cpu must be defective & to stop it from blowing up on people they set the multiplier @ 6x.ok fine but don’t advertise it as a 1500mhz rig & make consumers think that’s the speed they’ll b getting.how many other u.s.citizens r unaware that they’ve been swindled/cheated/misled?what about a recall? What about some legal action against them?i’ve spent hours & hours e-mailing them & making phonecalls & they’re intent on acting as if they’ve done nothing wrong.

The CPU is irrelevant. You need to find an audio driver for your make and model of motherboard, not the CPU.

CPU's don't need drivers, if you're looking for chipset drivers then you need to find the model number and name of your motherboard.

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz


Hello,
The processor you are talking about is a single core processor capable of Hyper Threading. (HT).
When you allow hyperthreading in the BIOS, Windows will show 2 ghost processors in the device manager.

If you are authorized to acces the BIOS setup,,enter the setup and look for HT or hyperthreading. If you disable hyperthtreading in BIOS, you will only see one processor in device manager.
Besides, if it is a dual core the BIOS must know.

Look on the case of the computwr where the Windows logo apperas, you may find mentioned :With HT technology. It used to be a boasting/selling mantra.

Hope it helps.

MULTIPLIER SET @ 6X INSTEAD OF 9X?


Ok first of all can I have the model of the unit? secondly usually when you first boot up the computer you can hit delete to enter the bios setup. Now unfortunately you have to hope that the multiplier is in the bios. Sometimes it is a jumper located on the actual motherboard. Once I get your model number I can assist you further. Try that first once in the bios look around to see what you can find. Also you can change it in power management in control panel. But they are probably correct most laptops do bump up the speed automatically. This helps to conserve power. Which you would want with your laptop.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Lee
