Manually Controlling Mobile Pentium Speed



I have a 700Mhz Pentium III Laptop. Windows XP has informed me that it has taken control of it's speed, which will be adjusted according to current needs and power supply. That just wonderful, except that unless I'm doing something incredibly strenuous, the darn thing never gets above 550Mhz. Maybe I'm just being whiney :D , but I don't enjoy waiting eight seconds to open a menu :( ...So I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to adjust the clock speed back up to full-throttle... Thanks in advance

there should be an icon in the lower right corner, it might be hidden, but it should have the option to turn off intel speedstep.

If that doesn't work you can goto and download the speedstep manager so that it will turn off speedstep if you want. You might consider leaving it on if you use your notebook alot not plugged in because running full speed full time drains the battery ALOT quicker
