Significantly Low FSB Speed Than Whats Rated...
I have just reinstalled Windows XP on a little netbook of mine. The Toshiba NB205-N311/W. It runs nice all-in-all, but I noticed it lags like crazy every now and again, and the cursor will slowly drag itself across the screen, programs take a while to execute and so-on. I was thinking about upgrading the hard drive to a solid state drive like I did with my other laptop. However I noticed the HDD activity light isn't all that busy when I execute programs and play music and video files, so a solid state drive would be a total waste of money. That lead me to believe it must be deep enough that it gets into the FSB of the system board, CPU, and RAM. Well I used a little program called CPU-Z and for some reason I found that my FSB is only at about 200MHz when it's rated for 667MHz. I thought it might be the CPU multiplier but there are no jumper settings on the system board. No settings in BIOS ether. I looked briefly through some software programs online that could quite possibly change this core setting but I found nothing. Any suggestions?
