Default need help with inspiron 8500 cpu speed

Bought this laptop from a co-worker. It is a 2.4 GHz machine but it always runs at 1.2 is there anyway to fix this? I can't find a FSB setting in bios. The laptop's battery is toast, so I'm wondering if this is my prob.

probably is. Also EIST is probably in effect limiting the multiplier thus slowing down the computer to save power.
