Hi. I have had my new laptop for a week now. It has an Intel pentium 4 3.06 HT CPU. Both Balarc and Aida32 state that it is 1.60 Ghz. Any ideas please. Ta, Dennis

when you turn on the computer what does the bios post screen say you have?

Hi It says 3.06. When I check the properties in My Computer it says 3.06 but has 1.60 on the next line, Ta Dennis

I assume yours is a mobile Pentium 4 3.06GHz. When running on battery, it runs at 1.6GHz according to Intel, so-called Intel Enhanced SpeedStep technology.

Also, I know that with desktop HT processors, if HT is enabled, BIOS and utilities like WCPUID should report 2 processors (but both with the same speed). I don't know how it should be reported with a mobile version.

I don't think there's anything wrong with your CPU. You could check whether HT has been enabled in BIOS.
