Alright weird: I needed to make a laptop "faster" for someone, because they thought it was slow. Yesterday evening, I took it home, and started a windows update process, which took about 12 hours to complete. Using it, the laptop was super slow, and in addition, it also said it had a wrong power adapter. After a day of work, I found out that the thing runs at 0.49ghz when the charger plug isn't all the way in. It charges, but won't go over 0.49ghz. pushing it .5mm more, it hit 2ghz. What the -.-
