Default Another question about my laptop

This laptop is a POS.
I reformatted it, and reset the BIOS to see if that would fix my USB ports that dont work. And to see if it would cool it down and reset the fan speeds.

But now, One of the cores run at 1.6, and the other runs at 1.2. They both use to be 1.6. Why is this?
I dont really to fix the problem, unless I can. This laptop is headed for the trash soon anyways. But I just curious why this happened.

Thanks!

Can you post some screenshots with CPU-Z? This seems quite impossible and a screenshot would help us possibly fix the problem.

Hahahaha, the first frequency is the CPU rated frequency and the second is the CPU actual frequency.

Due to the fact you have a computer with "power saver" features, it won't run at full speed unless you are stressing the computer. It does this to save massive amounts of battery power.

It's not at all broken.

It is broken.
1. all but 1 USB port works.
2. The CD drive has issues.
3. Its runs hot as hell, and the fans are always on high. Didnt use to do that.
4. the wireless is acting up. Im almost postive its not the router.

But thanks for clarifying that for me. I should of thought of that. But, Im sure it use to say 1.6, both of them.

Yeah sell it on eBay. As far as price maybe $100? They're expensive to replace.
