laptop cpu multiplier set to x6, should be x10

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I own a Acer Aspire 5738ZG. The processor speed is supposed to be 2GHz, but now it is 1200MHz, ***? It's not possible to change in BIOS so how do I change it?

Thanks.

Probably speedstepping.

Download LinX and monitor the cpu speed when doing a linpack.

Exactly, just Windows which puts the multiplier lower to consume less power when the processor is idle.
