Unfortunately, the problem with C&Q wasn't that it wouldn't function, it's that the default voltages were incorrectly reported by the BIOS. Stock voltage with the stock multiplier should be 1.35v, but it boots at 1.5v and loads XP at 1.45v.
Change the FSB instead, if your BIOS allows it.
Meh, it's an HP craptop. I begged and begged for at least a fixed BIOS, but they wouldn't give me that or the unlocked one I offered to PAY for. lol
cnq needs to have both the drivers from amd and be activated in bios. it seems that cnq is the absolute best way to undervolt (other than downcore.)
Hal, C&Q is superior because it has realtime monitoring of CPU load. Using predetermined voltages and multipliers for a given amount of load, the minimum amount of energy can be used, but even they have slack in them. Say my ML-34 CPU was only stable at 1.45Vcore at my 9x multiplier. I couldn't complain about the extra heat. But, my point is that cooling solutions for laptops don't have to be limited to the applications that are provided for us. I have a very average CPU in terms of stability to get to 1.2Vcore, but the lowest voltage/multiplier combination C&Q provides is 1.40v at 4X. WOW
