I think it may be a Stepping CPU, so it only uses full power when its under full load. That may be why it does not see it for what it is. This CPU is a proper Laptop though its about 5 to 6 years old I can use it on my Lap Without getting burned. at the moment it only just warm, if it was water you would say its aired
It enables you to set the cpu to run at a variety of levels (e.g. maximum speed, maximum battery time, auto switching depending on load etc.). I've had it on my XP laptop for some years.
BTW, I ran the Win8 Upgrade Assistant on my XP lappie and it crapped out without running all the way thru 'cos the lappie has less than 1GB and Win8 requires at least 1GB. I can't see why the Assistant doesn't run all the way through regardless and report ALL the issues with a system rather than stopping at each hurdle (that then has to be fixed before trying again). On another XP PC it wouldn't run fully 'cos it though the HDD was <20GB as the XP partition was only 10GB (so I had to restructure the partitions just to get it to run).
