Default Compaq Laptop question

I have a friend who has a compaq laptop, it has a amd 3000+. The problem is its only running at 797 MHZ. It seems a lot slower, I did a virus scan, adware, spybot, and microsoft? Is there a way to fix it? or should I try to contact compaq? Thanks for the help By the way I d/l cpu info to get my info, and it also says that under system properties.

I am guessing this is AMD Cool and Quiet working

See if your CPU speed goes up doing a memory intensive thing with CPU-Z from cpuid.com

What key do you press to get into the bios, I've tried del, f12,f1,f10? Also none of the temp programs work, they freeze up and don't do anything.
