|Thanks for your input guys.|
"You also have to change the Power Scheme settings."
I already set mine to ALWAYS ON.
" you should check for spyware/malware/viral infection. You
should also use CCleaner to clear out all the accumulated
garbage files & you should disable all unnecessary programs
from loading at startup."
My mistake, I didn't tell you guys that I fully reformatted my
hard drive(which I did btw).
"You don't have the correct chipset drivers installed and
windows is not seeing the speed of the CPU correctly."
I've tried this, I took all the drivers designated for my laptop
through Dell's download site.
One angle I'm currently looking at is that my laptop's
Speedstep is tuned backwards. When it doesn't need
processing power, it goes fast and when it needs more juice,
It slows down.
Anyways, It all started when my laptop was returned to me by
my cousin. Who told me he lend the laptop to another guy.
Which by the way made most of the parts of my laptop
defective .Some keys don't work (they ate infront of the laptop
leaving foodbits on the keyboard which ants chewed into), fan
doesnt turn on (reason why I changed the fan supply to Usb),
and battery lost its capacity (for I don't know why).
I checked all the parts and none of it was swapped since I
already opened my laptop a few weeks back to clean away
dust from the heatsink.
So far, the keyboard and fan problems were solved. The
battery low battery life can be tolerated since it was 2 years
old. But what bothers me is that it slows down.
