    Mr.Systematic

    Hello ...
    I have this processor AMD Turion X2 RM-72 on a HP dv7 1110eg

    The tool PumaStateCtrl "http://sourceforge.net/projects/pumastatectrl", never worked for me. Error at startup. Like you comment "bug causing the service to crash at startup (confirmed by Mihai M.)"

    With your update of May, 20 "http://amd.goexchange.de/".. everything perfect on Vista Ultimate 64bit

    I changed to Windows Seven RC 7100 64bit

    Now on W7, I can not restart the computer, the PC does not startup ... the same problem with PumaStateCtrl...

    I can only turn off and turn on

    Uninstall the GriffinControlService was the only possible solution

    Please, could do something

    I appreciate you infinitely and monetarily

    Thanks for your time
    Greetings!
    Lec

    Thank you,
    the problem persists

    I am communicating with the developer of the tool
    maybe he can do something ...

    This is only with Windows 7, in Vista always worked well

    The problem only occurs when i restart the computer

    if i turn off and on, the tool works well

    greetings
    Lec

    Thanks, I had already gone to this url
    but I get the same problem with Windows 7

    Besides this tool for some reason gives a peak voltage and not understand why it does that

    someone wrote in that blog and tells me that is normal, but I am not convinced

    saludos!

    I'm using 'startup delayer', this freeware tool gives you the possibility to control the timing and sequence of all scripts/programs which run during the boot-process. It's easy to add another program to be executed automatically.
    Works perfect.

    But, which tool you use for undervolt?
    You have Windows 7 installed?

    please give me much detail as possible

    saludos!

    I have Vista 64 bit OS installed on a tx2500z with RM70 (4GB) installed.
    Currently do I use the PumaCtrl tool but will try to switch to the successor.

    Hmmmm I have a question...

    How come for me, the undervolting only works when I have a transition from one p-state to another?

    My tx2500 uses the QL-60 processor, and the undervolting only works when I jump from p-state 0 (@1.9 GHz) to p-state 1/2 (both @950 MHz). After waking up from sleep, the undervolting stops working, too, and I have to jump from p-state 0 to p-state 1/2 in order to have undervolting working again. The service is still there though. I have tried with both PumaStateCtrl (coupled with exe to service) and GriffinCtrl (which has the service feature built in), but both of them require a change in p-state after resuming windows in order for the undervolting to work.

    After the p-state transition though, the undervolting works perfectly... that is, until I sleep the computer again or restart it.


    I am currently running Windows 7 RC 32-bit on my tx2508ca, which has a QL-60 (1.9 GHz).

    Firstly thanks alot for all your efforts in making this application. I am a newbie and know only the basics when it comes to computers. I own a hptx2500 and am experiencing a very VERY high temperature, even went upto 100 degrees :( I have been doing my research and found out that undervolting is the best option for me, i therefore read this thread throughly and after that even read the usage.html file to make things clear. I did what you said, but didnt understand what pstates should i set for my processor(if they need to be changed)?

    What i did:
    I made a config.xml file and since i own a ZM-80 processor i just copied and pasted this:

    - <pumastatectrl use_p_state_0_as_max_freq="true">
    - <p_states>
    <pstate number="0" Vid='40' />
    <pstate number="1" Vid='57' />
    <pstate number="2" Vid='64' />
    </p_states>
    - <CPU processor_name="AMD Turion(tm) X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile ZM-80">
    <freq_and_max_voltage frequency_in_MHz="2100" max_voltage_in_Volt="1.075" />
    <freq_and_max_voltage frequency_in_MHz="1050" max_voltage_in_Volt="0.95" />
    <freq_and_max_voltage frequency_in_MHz="525" max_voltage_in_Volt="0.8" />
    </CPU>
    </pumastatectrl>



    I actually just copied and pasted the entire thing from your usage.html(for zm-80) file because thats my processor specs but pumastate failed to run completely and made a word document folder saying:

    ::CommandLineToArgvW succeeded
    PumaStateCtrl::GetCPUID--Got function for CPUID
    PumaStateCtrl::GetCPUID--Calling CPUID succeeded:dwEDX:1478502765
    CPUID address:2147483650
    PumaStateCtrl::GetCPUID--Got function for CPUID
    PumaStateCtrl::GetCPUID--Calling CPUID succeeded:dwEDX:1919894317
    CPUID address:2147483651
    PumaStateCtrl::GetCPUID--Got function for CPUID
    PumaStateCtrl::GetCPUID--Calling CPUID succeeded:dwEDX:12344
    CPUID address:2147483652
    processor name of this CPU is: AMD Turion(tm) X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile ZM-80

    My question:

    Do i have to change anything? for eg: the pstates? if yes then what are the pstates for my processor?

    If pstates dont need to be changed then why doesnt it work? :(
    Please help me before my laptop burns itself!!
