I just bought a Zepto 6224W T8300 8600M laptop and I'm probable experiencing CPU or GPU thottling :(

GPU default clocks:
GPU 475
VRAM 400

First I had the gpu a bit clocked GPU 500 and VRAM 500:

On first run 3Dmark06 under Vista x64 gave me:

3800 marks (1280x800)
right after I run it second time and then got:
3400 marks
then:
3000 marks
and final
2700 marks :(

Then I was thinking that maybe it is Vista 64bit acting weird and installed XP and didn't overclock the gpu or vram one bit:

First run (1280x800):
3422 marks
second:
3346 marks
third:
3164
fourth:
3159
fifth:
3158

Is there a reliable way to test CPU or GPU thottling? I bought this machine second hand on friday, so I would like to see a solution as fast as possible.
