The 1st link suggests this:

Double-click on My Computer, then Control Panel, then System. The CPU speed should be under the brand name of your computer. Possibilities include "Pentium", "486", etc..

BUT it also DOES NOT show the processor speed. I am unable to connect to the internet (or network) with the PC in question so I can not try the 2nd suggestiom. Any other ideas? I thought there may be a DOS command...?

when you are booting up the laptop it will probably show you the speed (most of the computers do show it).. as far as i know and i've been using dos since dos ver 3.0 and there is no such command to display cpu speed..

Dell Latitude D300XT. I guess that means its a 300 speed processor?
