It might be that the laptop is detecting to much heat and underclocking it to stabilize performance. I'd take the lap top apart and reseat the heatsink or something.

See what happens when it is put under a load. Usually, mobile processors will drop the multiplier and voltage to save energy and reduce heat.

he is right about lap tops lowering the clock frequency to conserve power and reduce heat. That might be it.
