Dell 6000

Dear Forum
After reading the reviews on Dell I took the plunge and purchased an Inspiron 6000 (1.73 Ghz 2MB L2 cache 533 Mhz FSB) with ATi Radeon mobility X300 graphics. I am very happy with it apart from two old (Ghost Recon)games which state it is below minimum spec ( 800Mhz). I cannot understand this as it isn't. Is the notebook defaulted at a lower spec or is the game wrong?

Your help is much appreciated.

Right click My computer select properties, look on the General tab, what speed does it show there?

It shows only 795 Mhz. How it that?

I have connected to the internet for the first time and the processor now displays the expected 1.73 Ghz which is nice. Thanks though I am a bit scared how it has done it....
