My laptop: (HP Pavilion touchsmart tx2-1020us tablet pc) So far I've tried every program I could find to underclock/volt/turn off fans (RM Clock, Crystal CPUID, Power Now!, Cool'n'quiet, speedfan, AMD power control, and many others...) and none of these work because I have vista 64 or because they don't recognize my processor (AMD Turion x2 dual-core mobile zm-82). It made no difference when I turned testsigning mode off either. My bios has no options except to make the fan not on 100% of the time so now it's on 95% of the time and it's annoying as fuck. Thermal paste isn't something I'm considering because I heard it's not that great and I don't want to spend the money to get it done and I couldn't figure out how to access the CPU myself. I'm waiting on the Zalman cooling pad but it won't be here for a while. Basically I need my computer to shut the fuck up when I'm in class. Are there any other programs I haven't tried that will work for my processor and vista? Also, I was wondering if I did a dual boot with xp if I could use one of the programs compatible with xp to change some CPU settings and then have these changes still active in vista. I can't just use XP because my tablet appications will not work the same if at all. Please someone help me out! And by the way, speedfan tells me only the temperature of my computer (won't let me change anything) and so my HD is around 43 C, Core 62C (pretty steady), and Temp 1 (? Maybe my CPU?) is fluctuating between 53 and 63 C.
