    How do I set the "powersetting" in RC2 to let my AMD 4800+ X2 make use of
    Cool'n'quiet?
    In WindowsXP it should be set at "Minimal Power Management", but there is no
    such setting in Vista (or at least I can't find it). Will I have to get a
    seperate driver for Vista from AMD to get it to work?
    It did not work in RC2, and I can't get it to work now in a full Vista.
    Can someone guide me through this point by point? TIA

    Regards

    Power settings, select the advanced options, form there you can select all
    needed options.

  3. There is one caveat: For c'n'q to work, the Bios needs to supply more
    ACPI-information than was required in Windows XP. I.e. my MSI K9N Neo
    requires at least Bios 1.6b3 (betaversion, the stable one will be 1.6)
    for these settings to appear, although c'n'q worked in XP previously.

    if your mother board/bios supports it and it is turned on.
    then power saver mode makes best use.
    balanced is good to.

    lots of people are finding that their bios/motherboard does not support C & Q in vista.

    open up the advanced settings in one of the power options and see if you have a COMPUTER POWER section. if not then yours is not supported.

    Indeed for Vista you need always the latest (stable would be my suggestion)
    BIOS version.
