HELP!!! Laptop CPU slow

  neo1337 16:53 04 Jul 2006

I have a laptop with an AMD Athlon XP-M CPU. It should run at 2.2GHz, but i recently fromatted the HDD and reinstalled the OS, and since then its been showing up as a pretty shocking 463 MHz. I looked in the BIOS settings and the CPU clock speed ais already at its maximum. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance

it's ok - laptop cpus change speed according to the load on the pc at the time - it saves battery power and reduces heat
