bad cpu preformace on my laptop
I installed Mandrake 10.1 for a month ago on my Aopen notebook, and i'm quite pleased with the result. apart from the fact that the cpu-preformance is way less than it should be. in the system configuration it detects 598 Mhz, allthough i have a 1,7 Ghz (intel cel.) prossessor. I'm suspecting that the ACPI is causing this, as it seems my laptop is running in battery mode even when it's pluged in.
if i force the computer to run on maximum cpu even when it is in battery mode (in the BIOS setup), it weighs in at 1695 Mhz in the cpu detection, but i don't know if this is advisable in the long run. could this be harmful for the computer? does anyone know a better alternative to achieve the proper cpu performace?
