min cpu frequency problem

Well, one day after getting my usual cup of green tea after class ... I decided to fiddle around with the system (again) and broke something (again). This time, I somehow ended up changing the minimun cpu frequency from ~400 megahertz to 1200 megaherts:

Rei:/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq# cat cpuinfo_min_freq 
For some general info, I have about a year old dell Inspiron 8500 laptop. I used to have powernowD installed, then I installed cpufreqd (this is how I screwed things up in an attemp to make my laptop run cooler and quiter :-/)

I hope any of you have any idea on who to get it back to 400mghz.

Thank you for any information/help that you can give me ,
Peter K.
