Cannot control processor clock via NHC. What is wrong?

#1 Post by formslash » Tue Apr 17, 2018 8:12 am

Hello,

first thank you for a great site.

I have just upgraded my old T60 14 inches XGA with T7600 to T61 14 inches XGA with T7700 processor. Both Windows 7 32bit. I was used to control the processor clock with Notebook Hardware Control application on the T60. Therefore I was getting either longer battery life or higher performance.

BUT it doesnt work on my present T61. I cannot change the multiplier (FID). Sometimes it changes itself, but I dont see any logical pattern in it. I have also tried other programs, such as RMclock, but with no result.

May I ask, what should I do now to control processor clock?

Thank you very much

Try and install Middleton's BIOS, then upgrade the CPU to T8100/T8300/T9300/T9500 or even X9000.
Those CPUs may give you better control.


Question: since when is Hanoi located in United States?
Your proper Location would be appreciated.

Have you tried IBM_ECW? It works perfectly fine on my R61i with a X7800.
