computer processor speed is changing

  LAPTOPBABE 20:25 20 Sep 2007

Hi whilst trying to figure out if my second laptop will take more ram i have been going to 'my computer' quite a lot to check for info. I noticed today that sometimes it says it has a speed of 896, and sometimes 696 and sometimes 496. At the moment it is saying 896, but only ten minutes ago it said 496. Does anyone know why this is? I presume this is why it appears very slow sometimes Cheers.

To keep the temperature down laptop processors can adjust their speed to match the workload. It's normal behaviour.

hi so how do I know what is the official speed of my processor. Sorry to be dum, some things i know about but this i don't. Its just that the web sites for memory seem to be quoting more than 1 compaq M700 with different processor speeds.

As I said in your other thread, order the Crucial memory, send it back if it doesn't work. I've done it myself.
