Processor speed locked from Windows?

hi there, I have an inspiron 710m with 10.4.5

the machine seemed pretty slow under osx, and I had to boot into windows, turn on the wireless, and restart - os x would not let me start the wireless card.

however, I am now using the machine (1.7ghz, recognised on sys info as 2.0 ghz) and it is pretty fast! i did some heavey calculations in windows before restarting the mahcine.

is there any way that the processor, a pentium m that downgrades its speed to save battery, is locked in windows, so that if I reboot from a low speed in windows then mac os x will also be slow?

please let me know if there is any way of effectively measuring the speed of the processor in os x.
