Power Management Issues (Underclocked Processor)
A few months ago, I installed Windows Vista on my Uniwill P50CA Notebook.
Ever since installation I've had an issue with Vista's power management
system. My CPU will only clock at 800 Mhz no matter which power scheme I've
selected. I've even created a custom scheme in which the processor throttling
is set to 100%. I've also noticed that the memory is not clocking as fast as
it should. To check for a possible hardware problem, I installed Windows XP
x64 on a second partition. In XP, the CPU and memory behave just fine. The
PowerNow! functionality of the CPU also works fine. I've been having this
problem for months now, and have been hoping for a driver release or some
patch from Microsoft to fix this problem. I've been all over the internet and
I simply cannot figure out what my problem is. I've also run the Windows
Vista Upgrade Advisor from Microsoft's site, and it told me I was fine to
upgrade. Their hardware compatibility website also says nothing about this
computer. Please someone help me! I'm at my wits end.

Your wits should end at the likely realization you can't run
Vista on that machine, I'd stick with XP.

Re: Power Management Issues (Underclocked Processor)

Sorry but I cannot agree with you.I have only got a Turion 2800+ CPU and
Vista Utimate is running smoothly on my machine. CPUis not the only thing to
concentrate...If you've got 2G mem then there's nothing to worry about.

And to 06:
If you want you CPU running under its full speed you can try using rightmark
CPU utility to adjust the Clock mannually.
