speedsted - unable to raise max speed

By alainch ·
Oh well ths for any help!!
Bought an Amildo D7400 (fujitsu-siemens) I used it from the beginning on AC

At first it booted-up quite normally. I also got my top speed 1600Mhz with no problem.

Few months after I started to get locked at 600Mhz after booting.

Bonging my head on the wall and doing few thousand different test I discovered that I can:

Boot with my USB mouse plugged in ...
wait till the windows is full started ...
unplug the mouse and replug it after 5-10 secs
(one or more time) and normally the system goes up to 1600 mhz again

So well till 2 months ago:
did something (I am not able to pinpoint it :-( Windows updates or some software or some new usb hdw)
And now I'm stuck with a 600mhz laptop.
the mouse trick is not working anymore

1) power setting on AC was, and still is, "maxperformance"
2) I used speedswitchxp to monitor and to "try" to force EIST (no way)
3) no Bios option to modify EIST behaviour
4) at last I used PcWizard
