    i have a tx2520ej (3 gigs mem, 2.1Ghz cpu).

    has anyone been successful in undervolting it?
    i'm experiancing high temps even in idle (around 65-70C), noisy fan and a relativly short battery life for an 8 cell (bit over 3 hours at balanced mode and while not doing anything different from surfing the net and hearing music). i realize those are problems generally associated with the tx25xx series but undervolting should make it better, no?

    Any chance of developing a x64 version?

    What info would be needed?

    Are you running 32bit Vista? It's only for 32 bit.

    If so, are you running it as administrator?

    No support for Turion Ultras yet.

    "sorta" found a workaround. Extract it onto ur desktop NOT in a folder and run it as a admin. works, but its GUI is very..."basic"

    Vista can turn down the processor natively. It's in the advanced power options.

    But that should not be the same as undervolting. It just limits the CPU core frequency and sets the DEFAULT voltage for this frequency.
    DEFAULT voltages because they are regarded as safe for the variations of the copies of same CPU models. But you can often lower the voltages for lower power consumption.

    Sorry for the minimalistic features/user interface. It took me around 4 weeks to research and develop these basic functions until it fits now MY needs.

    When I have time, I can develop it further and maybe build x64 version(but I can not test as I have no 64 bit Vista) .

    The .exe should generate a "PumaStateCtrl_debug.txt" file within the working dir. Maybe post parts of it here if you encouter problems running the program. So I maybe find the cause for the problem.
