Can anyone recommend an application that looks at the current processor speed/status in a laptop that changes speeds with load (Speedstep?)

Sons Dell E1705 has an intermittant condition where it slows to a crawl and the processor fan goes to high with no applications running. Appears the processor is dropping from 1800 to 800 MHz during this fault. Looking for a way to monitor what the processor *thinks* it is doing.

XP or Vista?
A couple of different ones here:
