Inspiron5150 speedstep


Recommended Posts

Hello Guys!

I know its nothing with graphic problems but maybe someone can help me.

im searching for an intel speedstep driver for my Inspiron5150.

The Dell support site is down so i cant search there :/

Someone got a driver for me? Would be great.

thx a lot!

Attached below. It's more recent than Dell's, but you'll have to extract it to an empty folder and use the "Have Disk" method of installation.

- Use the Device Manager to update the processor driver, but don't let it "install from a list or specificied location." Instead use the "Let me choose the driver" option.

- Select the "Have Disk..." option

- Click the "Don't search. I will choose..." button.

- Click the "Have Disk" button and browse for the folder with the new update.

Got another problem and dont want to create a new thread:

can i turn off the speedstep eg if i dont use my battery?

Got often the problem that he turns my cpu to 1,59ghz but i would need 2,8ghz :/

Just use the "Desktop" or the "Always On" power profile in the Control Panel. Both of those will keep your CPU running at full speed all the time.

hehe, im bad as hell :)

some days ago ive written to you a pm which gives me the answer :)

thanks for helping my brain to remember.

I should give everyone here a beer for my dumbness :(

EDIT: ahhhh, it doesnt work :/ desktop and "allways on" set the speed to 1,59ghz :/

got your cpu driver lsudlow. any other idea? :P (btw: i restarted, so that cant be the problem.) speedstep is turned of @bios.

EDIT2: got new informations: i installed speedswitch. Set it to max performance. If i tell speedswitch to ask windows for cpu speed he sais 1594. if i leave him calculate the cpu speed realtime he sais 2790mhz (which is max speed). thats strange :/ seems like windows tells me the wrong speed?
