Got a really weird problem with my emachines computer. i've got winxp
installed on my primary hd, and mint installed on my second hd.
My processor is a amd sempron 3100+ 1.8 ghz. After installing mint,when i boot up winxp, it shows the processor clock speed at only 1.0 ghz.
The clock speed in bios cannot be adjusted manually in emachines computers (don't know why). The only way to reset the clock speed is to do
a complete format and reinstall of the emachines/winxp system with the recovery cd. And when I reinstall mint, it promptly takes it back to 1.0 ghz again
What to do????????????????? Thanks for any input!
OK, I found that if I turn the computer off and then turn it back on and boot
into windows directly, it will keep the clock speed at 1.8 ghz. But if I'm in Mint
and restart, then boot into windows, it goes back to 1.0 ghz.
