If you have an Intel CPU, it's SpeedStep doing it's job. If you have an AMD CPU, it's Cool'n'Quiet doing it's job. In other words, nothing is wrong. If you want the CPU to run at full speed, all the time, disable the power saving feature.

i have amd sempron
I tried - control panel >>> power options>>>> always on
and still it shows that its 799mhz
when i go to canyourunit.com to see if my computer can run some games then its showing that i cant because i have 799mhz .. so i think that shouldnt be like that ..

It is not a Gaming Laptop the Graphics are crap, hence why there are no power options, it is designed for general SOHO use...

I never bothered to google the model number, but why didn't you state it was a laptop from the very beginning? If you disable Cool'n'Quiet, your battery life will be reduced to about 30-60 min between charges. Not to mention they'll be a greater chance of the CPU overheating. Cool'n'Quiet is enabled for a reason. Like I said in my 1st response, there is nothing wrong, your system is working as it should. Try putting it under load, THEN look at the CPU speed.

There is nothing wrong! Cool'n'Quiet is doing it's job, just like it's supposed to do! If you put the system under load, the CPU will run at 2.0GHz. When it's doing little or nothing, it will run at 800MHz. If it's under medium load, it might run at 1.4GHz. That's how it works! Why do you need a new laptop? For gaming? Decent gaming laptops cost $1000 or more.

Get a desktop for gaming, use the laptop for portability when you need it for work. Desktops are more suitable for gaming, have more options when you purchase it, and are much more upgradable (depending on what you purchase) in the future. For best gaming, build or have someone knowledgeable build one for you based on the level of gaming you plan to get into in the next 3-5+ years.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

DUDE!! this is getting weird we already told u wut u need to know abt cool n quiet why on earth would u still want to disable it thats just stupid and reduces cpu life and labtop life its not a gaming labtop it never will be. but its VERY NORMAL for ur cpu to do this hence it wont cool.
disabling cool n quiet will result in cpu overheat and killing of system by ur own hands we explained if ur still stubborn then do it we are not responsible for consequences
