That's one of the things I'm wondering about.  I have a AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 
Dual Core Processor 4200+.  The other thing I'm wondering about is the 
motherboard chipset.   Do you know if your motherboard has a AMD/ATI or Nvidia 
chipset on it?  I am using a Nvidia NForce 6150 based board.

Do you know if you have the cpufreq and cpufreq-ondemand modules loaded or 
compiled in your kernel?  You should be able to do this command
  cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
to see if it is loaded and which governor is being used.
