As you can see below I have a Intel Pentium 1600. If you look at the
actual cpu MHZ, its only performing around 600 mhz. Can someone explain
this or lead me to a possible solution?

OS = Suse 9.2
Comp: Dell Latitude D600 (laptop)

try "powersave -f" and check again, if it's at full speed, then powersave is kicking in and you can safely set it back with "powersave-A". When the workload demands it, it'll dynamically switch back to full speed and back to powersave when the load falls off.
