Problems with PA1510 and Vista 64bit

Postby sqrd » Fri Apr 04, 2008 10:55 pm

My English is very bad but I have hope that you will understand something. So...
I have notebook Siemens-Fujitsu Amilo PA1510(AMD turion 64 x2 1.6GHz) and Vista Business 64bit SP1. I have two problems:
1)I set always 50% maximum frequency processors (800MHz on one core). "high performance" is set in Power plan. And I don't know why? Of course I check when processor is busy(using)
2)Next problems this is drivers to Reader Card. Where I can find drivers to systems Vista 64bit? I installed many drivers but don't work.

Windows Vista is smart enough work on half speed to conserve energy and to reduce heat. If you use any demanding applications such as games and what not the processor smacks up to full speed. The same function is available in Linux dists too. Saves you the work of hitting the button manually. On your second question I have no answer, sorry. :(

I guess you would have to install a chipset driver to make the card reader work. But I have no idea where you can find one for Vista 64bit.
The CPU problem seems to be due to a missing chipset driver too. What does it mean, that the processor is "busy"? Does it just do "something" or is it on high load?

To maximize the load of your CPU, open two instances of the calculator in scientific mode and let each of them compute the factorial (n!) of a big number (e.g. 999999999). If you then check your CPU speed you should see the actual maximum frequency.

Why do you use a 64bit OS? Is there some application that requires this? If not you should return to a 32bit OS again.
