Recently I bought Omnibook 6000 (600MHz 2x128MB Siemens SD-RAM, 10GB HDD, RAGE w/8MB...). Windows XP Pro SP3 installed, HP SpeedStep patch, and proper drivers.
Laptop works great but *only* when I disable SpeedStep. When SS is disabled it works at 500MHz, and I don't like it :)
When I enable SpeedStep (or set it to "Performance" in BIOS), laptop boots, i start working something (anything) and then freezes. Then I turn it off and on back again and it passes the POST screen, but it simply won't get to the screen with system information and boot. After POST I get a blank black screen.
What could be the problem? Btw it is not running on batteries as they are dead.
Thanks in advance, Alexander.

I don't get that how the inverter problem may be related to SpeedStep problem? I don't have any problems with LCD or external monitors.
Thank you anyway.
