    I've searched the AMD site to see if Cool 'n quiet will run with
    Windows XP Pro 64bit and can find nothing. Can anyone help, please?

    It's an All-In-One utility for single and dual core CPUs

    What I sent before is for the CPU driver. Cool'n'Quiet will
    not work without it. You must also enable Cool'n'Quiet in
    the BIOS and set the Power Management to "Minimal Power
    Management." Some of the older utilities from the mb
    manufacturers will not run on Win x64, but I think all the
    recent ones will.

    What motherboard are you using?

    The reason I asked is monitoring software for Cool'n'Quiet
    is supplied by the individual board manufacturer. For MSI
    it's called CoreCenter and ASUS actually calls their's "Cool
    & Quiet". I don't know what GigaByte's is, but I think it
    might be their EasyTune utility.

    The problem may possibly be caused by memory. I am playing
    with one MSI K8T800Pro Neo2 system that crashes when I try
    to change the power management to 'minimal power management'
    for the Cool'n'Quiet management. I know it's memory related
    because when I have 2 Elixir sticks in there is no problem,
    but with 2 sticks of Kingston I have a problem. I am
    raising the memory voltage 0.05 volts at a time to see if
    raising the voltage will alleviate the problem, but no luck
    so far.
