I have a HP Pavilion laptop (with AMD Athlon 64 processor) that is about 5 years old. About a year ago, the computer started running half speed (797 MHz vs. 1.8 GHz). If I go into the "Power Options" and apply the "Alway On" setting, I can get the computer to run full speed. I must do this each time that I boot up. There is no indication that it is loosing it's settings. However, to get this to work I must click on another setting (i.e. "Home/Office Desk") and apply it. I then click on the "Always On" setting and apply it. Upon rebooting, the computer runs full speed. The computer retains this setting if I go to standby. However, if I turn off the computer I must go through the aforementioned procedure. This is a real pain. Any ideas on what might be causing this would be much appreciated.

Regards, ericjimdor

Dear Eric,

The problem might be coming from your RAM memory. Please check whether you need to get it upgraded in order to get the problem solved.

Thank you.
