Clock speed slowed down

Hey guys,

My computer is as follows:
Latitude D630
Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz
4GB DDR2 RAM

I installed OpenSuse on it, and after a few months the computer began to become painfully slow. I was sick of OpenSuse anyway, so I thought I might as well install W7 to rule out a software issue. After my first boot-up of a clean install of W7, the CPU usage was pegged at a constant 100% with core temps around 70 celsius. I looked in the BIOS and found that the CPU had been underclocked to 400mhz (the range stated was 1.2ghz to 2.0ghz). I am pretty certain it's the fan, as I don't hear it at all, and I'm assuming it should come on long before it starts slowing itself down.

I just wanted to get a second opinion before I buy a new fan.

Typically your fan should turn on full blast the second you turn your computer on so if it isn't then I would definitely look into it.

Sounds like it's underclocking itself because it is overheating. I have a D630 and I don't think the fan ever completely shuts off.

Yeah just took it apart, whoever "refurbished" it forgot to plug the fan cable back in.
