i am new to this forum and after reading lots of threds on here, I am hoping that you clever people can help me!!!
I have a laptop that has just come back from repair and i have noticed that the speed of my processer has dropped from 2.2GHz to 800MHz???
this has happend before when it came back from repair, so i sent it back and they sorted it.
I phone the company today and they have told me that they have shut down and cant help me anymore, even though i still have a years warrenty left!
The machine i have is a rebranded MITAC 8317.
it has a amd mobile athlon 64 3400+
and the bios is made by INSYDE SOFTWARE
the trouble is i have gone into the bios and it only allows me to change the system time, hard drive etc. and it does not allow me to change the processor speed
and i can not find anything anywhere online to allow me to update the bios
please please can someone shed some light in this as i am pulling out the little amount of hair i have left !!!
Someone has possibley sujested that the bios could be locked? could this be right, and if so, how can i unlock it. Or is it something simple that i am over looking!
thanks in advance
