    Hi, I have an Hp Pavilion ze5570us (to be very specific) It's a notebook, but I don't think that matters.
    I have a 'Genuine Intel(R) CPU 2.66Ghz' processor.
    On the 'General' tab of the 'System Properties' window is says it there, and then underneath that it says something like 1.60Ghz or 956Mhz, which I believe is the speed that it is really running at... that number changes all the time...
    My question is, why does my computer run a whole Gh Slower than it says it is supposed to? Is there an option or setting somewhere that I can change to get it to pick up the pace?
    I would appreciate any help on this, cause I have no idea where to even start (besides here)...
    OK, thank is advance


    PS: I attached a picture of my system properties and the dxdiag window.
