If you look a little closer you will see that the FSB speed is the same but your multiplier has dropped to x4 in Windows 7, which is most likely to to save power and prolong the life of your components, if you start doing something that is more intensive and requires more power you should see the multiplier rise to the default again.

Here you go this is what mine looks like when the multiplier drops, this happens in Vista as well for me.

Have you actually set your power settings to Performance mode?

As mentioned, check your power settings. There's a section in there about min/max cpu usage.

Does your latop have built in power modes(acpi)?

Maybe that is setting they cpu to underclock.
