Q: How do I change SpeedStep settings on the Gateway M305CRV notebook?A: The purpose of Intel® SpeedStep® technology is to allow customized high-performance computing on your notebook computer. With SpeedStep, when the notebook computer is connected to the AC outlet, complex business and Internet applications run with speed virtually identical to a desktop computer. When using a battery to power the notebook computer, the processor drops to a lower frequency (by changing the bus ratios) and voltage, conserving battery life while maintaining a high level of performance.
When SpeedStep is enabled, the computer does not run at full speed until the faster speed is needed. This reduces power consumption and increases battery life.
If you are using Microsoft® Windows® XP, you can modify the Intel SpeedStep settings by the power scheme you select.
If you are using Windows 2000, you can change the SpeedStep settings using the Intel SpeedStep technology tab.
Follow these steps to change SpeedStep settings in Windows 2000.
