    Hey guys;

    I just bought a new laptop few days ago. It is

    "Compaq Presario AMD Turion 64 ML-32 1.8GHz Laptop (V2570)"

    I got it from future shop. It has 512mb ram. Its cpu speed which supposed to be 1.8GHz, it is running right now @ 789MHz. When I just bought this laptop right after its first start I checked the speed of cpu, it was 1.7GHz, and few hrs later it was 1.5Ghz. What is going on? Why the speed of this cpu is changing?

    Now, last two days the speed is stuck at 789MHz, even when I freshly start it in the morning.

    Is this computer supposed to run like that? or Is there something wrong with? I am still able to return it to future shop, I still got 11 days to do so.

    what to do? pls help guys...

    thank you so much.

    1- how do you know that the cpu is slow
    check CPU speed with this real time clock it measures speed in two different ways. so don't worry. (sorry mods only direct download)
    No direct downloads -Ron
    2-make sure cpu heat sink is not clogged with dust (clean the cpu unit)
    3-watch cpu temperature and try to keep it below 50 Celcius by adding a case fan for ex.
