Recently, my laptop has been running at 799 mhz - nowhere near its 1.6 ghz processing speed. In addition, it no longer plays DVD's correctly. However, after I restart it works for short amount of time. I recently wiped my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP. The problem disappeared only temporarily. I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software issue. Please review my log file for any possible software issues.
Thank you. Any help is greatly appreciated.
