Some days ago I installed DSL3.2 on my old notebook Toshiba Satellite 4030CDT and noticed one odd thing -
every boot my CPU is shown as a Celeron Mendocino 151MHz or 150MHz instead of real 300MHz!
Is it normal or not? Any ideas to fix this?
And one more question - which version of DSL would be the most stable for this notebook?
There's nothing wrong with your laptop or with DSL. In your power options, you probably have it set for "always on." Intel's speedstep reduces CPU speed by half when the CPU is being underused to reduce battery consumption. That's not a bad thing, imo. You can change that if you want but you're not running at half-speed all the time and changing the setting wouldn't "fix" anything -- just drain your battery faster.
Use the most current version of DSL.
