    you can use CPU-Z.
    unzip the downloaded file into a folder on your desktop. and just execute it.
    http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpu-z-139.zip
  4. Go to www.cpuid.com and download CPU-Z. Unzip it and run the .exe. Tell us what it says it is.

    sorry :P
  6. ok ran it it says T5500 @1.66 MHZ hmm just when u click device manager does it sayd T7200 2.0 mhz AND WHEN U CLICK ON PROCESSOR DOES IT SAY T7200 twice i was wondering if sony maybe gave me a T7200 and its running at T5500 SPEED so maybe i could maybe unlock it to run at that speed but that programu sent me does say T5500
  7. You could OC it, but why? What do you plan to do with this laptop?

    You can't unlock it to a t7200.
  8. i was going to be using to play everquest 2 and stuff .. i really dont need to overclock it,just if it was somthin easy to do i would unlock it but if it somthin complicated i wouldnt mess w it at all just wanted to have faster cpu if its was simple settings
