If so, I believe that behavior is normal as a batery saving and heat reducing process.
The computer runs slower until you push the processor to 100 percent, then automatically throttles up as needed (the speedstep technology you mentioned earlier).
You would not want to disable this. Now, if you have multiple processes running and it is not throttling up (this may be difficult to gauge), then I would wonder if their is a BIOS update available for your machine.
What version BIOS are you running?

Check your motherboard model.
I THINK this is a uniwill 258ka series notebook that was rebadged by FujitsuSiemens.
It certainly sounds like it.

I wouldn't bother, though, since MANY people have expressed a problem like this.
What is unclear is if it is really a problem, or is Windows simply mis-reporting?
Setting aside the crappy performance for a moment, Microsoft acknowledges that there is a bug in XP that mis-reports your CPU speed. I am not sure what program you are monitoring your CPU speed with, but it could be getting it's information from XP, and therefore, it will be wrong no matter what.
Take a look here:
Some have reported good luck with a couple of programs
SpeedswitchXP, but I am not certain that
a) they work
b) if they work, that they are really fixing a problem that does not really exist. By this I mean, if Windows is incorrectly reporting a speed, and you use these apps to LOCK IN a speed, maybe the CPU was throttling up and you were just unaware.
There are some extensive discussions on this issue at the UNIWILL forums (you need to register).
Back to crappy performance
Crappy performance may not have anything to do with the CPU throttling. Since for many games the problem is not the CPU but the other subsystems. Who loaded your notebook? were all the drivers loaded (and loaded properly--notebooks are notoriously finicky when it comes to loading drivers and loading them in the proper order).
I wish I could be more help, but to really help I would need to have a similar machine to test hands on.

Quote If you click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Information, the correct processor speed is shown (for example, a displayed 797-MHz speed equals 800 MHz). After you start the System Information tool, the System tool in Control Panel displays the correct speed. However, when you first start your computer, the incorrect speed may be listed in the System tool in Control Panel.
In both my system properties my processor reads 800mhz

Use P-State Transitions (I have ticked the box)
minimal FID: 4.0x
Maximal FID: 9.0x
Minimal VID: 1.100v
Maximal VID: 1.100v
Profile: Automatic management
On-Demand Clock Modulation (ODCM) has been greyed out so I can't activate it.
Performance/Power Preference (For both PST and ODCM)
Set To: More Performance (NO POWERSAVING)
Hardware/Software Workarounds (Restart Required)
I Can select 2 of these features but havent selected either (Dont know what they are)
Powermanagement Settings (Per ACPI State)
ACPI State to Display/Modify: C2 (Stop Grant)
Clock Divisor Select: Divide by 512
3 selectable boxes, I have only 1 selected = CPU Low Powr Enable
Clock Power/Timing settings
Good Phase Error (us): 100
Clock Ramp Hysteresis (ns): 2000
HTT Clock PLL Lock Counter (us): 10
P-State Transitions Settings (Restart required)
FID transition Stabilization (us): 80
VID Transition Stabilization (us): 100
Max ramp Voltage Offset (mV): 50
Follow AMD P-State Transitions Rules box has been checked
Use Direct P-State transitions box has NOT been selected.
Now could ANYBODY help me set my settings up so that I dont fry my processor Please?
