hi i have just got a new laptop, hp9010 p4 3.06 ghz, xp pro, when i look in system propertys it says that the cpu is 1.5 ghz and when i look again it says cpu is 849mhz, i asked in the shop and they said it was because it is a laptop and the software reads it that way, when i look in aida32, it says that it is a 3.06ghz cpu which is clocked to 1.5 ghz, how can i change this or is the man in the shop right i live in spain and tried hp but got no joy can anyone help.

thanks

Is it a mobile CPU chip? Mobile chips cut down on the speed that they run at so as to preserve battery life and extend it.

As far a software reading it that way I have a laptop with a 3ghz chip and my software reads it fine.

You could check out your BIOS settings and see if you can see if anything is awry.
