Don't ask how to hack password. (BIOS Passwords)

I replaced the old Celeron 1.13GHz with a Pentium III-M 1.2GHz in my hp omnibook xe4100. It works but only at 800MHz (133x6). So I searched for a while and it seems to be a speedstep problem. Is there anything I can do to make it use the higher multiplier?

I have tried to find software to do this but nothing seems to work. I think the chipset is VIA ProSavage PN133T (TwisterT) and it should support speedstep. I have the latest bios and while booting it shows the correct CPU name. The bios setup doesn't have anything about speedstep...

So I think the speedstep feature is somehow disabled in bios but could it be still possible to enable the higher multiplier or is there a way to modify the bios? I tried phoenix bios editor and found some read-only speed switching options but don't know what to do. So somebody (sharedoc? :D ) please help me...
