I've got a Sempron 3100+ on a Asus K8V SE Deluxe with BIOS rev 1004 (latest currently).
I'd like to use the Cool'n'Quiet feature, but the Asus software for Cool'n'Quiet fails under Windows 2000 SP4 on my setup. I think it has problems parsing some files upon initialization. A lot of error dialogs appear endlessly with the same useless message...

So have you got any hints regarding this problem ?

Thank you,

Make sure Cool'n'Quiet is enabled in BIOS and also make sure you set your power-scheme to 'Minimal Power Management' in Control Panel->Power Options.

Uninstall the Asus-software and download and install the appropriate Cool'n'Quiet Software from AMD - you can get it here' ">

If you like, you can download and run AMD's Cool'n'Quiet/PowerNOW! Dashboard' "> - it's a small program that will allow you to see Cool'n'Quiet 'at work'.

Just launch the dashboard-utility and then run something CPU-intensive like a Prime95 'Torture test' for example to watch your processor switch to full speed and voltage
