alright, i have some guests over, they want me to fix up the comp, etc. etc. and the problem is, the 90nm S479 (2.0 stock) pentium M dothan core runs at ~798 mhz and its usually always at full load due to its SLOW speed. the multiplier is 6x and the bus speed is 133, the rated fsb being 532. it has a stupid dell bios which has NO OCING OPTIONS WHATSOEVER. like the most i can do is disable speedstep, which is disabled btw. i'll have another look at the bios, is there any like hidden key combo to unlock the options or anything? clockgen wont let me do anything..
