i hava toshiba a65 laptop running xp pro
my cpu is 2.8 ghz, however, in computer system properties it reads 1.85!
i'm missing 1000 mhz!
in cpuid (hopefully you're familiar) it reads 2.8 real quick-for half a second then goes to 1866mhz!
it also quickly gives me a high multiplier-something like 20x or so then comes down to 14x (fsb 133.3 and bus 533.3)
what's up?
