    Pentium M, 2Ghz Runs at only 598 Mhz


      I have an old but lightly used Dell Inspiron 9200 running a Pentium M, 755 Processor.  A couple of months ago I fired it up after it had been sitting idle for almost is or a year.  I noticed that it was running unusually slow.  After a couple of days of running diagnostics I found that the processor is only running at about one fourth of its rated speed.  I have tried disabling speed step, reinstalling the OS, and drivers and updating any dated drivers that I could.  It is still running at 598 Mhz instead of 2.0 Ghz.  Is there any way to fix this or do I just use it as a paperweight?
