Centrino 1.5 GHz Stuck at 600Mhz!
Hi, I read this question on itmob.com. Anybody here know how to fix it??
I tried to swap the P-M 705 for a P-M 745 (1.8GHz 2MB L2) but it would not work at any higher than 600MHz, so I thought it was just not compatible, so I returned it. But when I swapped the 1.5GHz back in, it too would no longer go higher than 600MHz.
I did a format after each time I changed processors. I downloaded the latest chipset utility from intel. I checked the BIOS if I can manually clock my processor. And I changed my power management scheme to minimal power management. But none of this helped.....
Please help with any suggestions you can offer.
Thanks guys, appreciate it.

remove the battery from the laptop and the mobo battery as well for about 8hrs. then reinsert the processor followed by the mobo battery and then the system battery and reboot. see if that helps...

It's speedstep - kicks in the 6x multiplier to save power. Find something regarding speed step in your cmos setup and disable it.

Could be a jumper on the motherboard to change clock speed

Did you read the post directly above yours? Look in the bios for SpeedStep settings.
