    Cool'n'Quiet is not O.S. dependent. It is a
    combination of settings in your BIOS and the
    appropriate CPU driver.

    If you want to find out how it works, read you
    owners manual.

    Maybe the question should have been....Are there any Vista capable AMD
    drivers out there ...the ones on the AMD website will not install give the
    message they are for XP/2000 only??
    The reason I am asking is because I have a device that has no drivers and
    each time Vista starts it looks for drivers....its labelled as an unknown
    device nd I have no idea what it is.

    If you look in the Device Manager for Processors
    your CPU should be listed there. If it is, look
    at the Properties, then Driver Details. If
    there is a files named AmdK8.sys then you have
    the AMD driver that support the Cool'n'Quiet
    feature. It's in both my x86 and x64
    installations of Vista and the Cool'n'Quiet is
    functioning in both versions.

  6. Check the device's properties/details tab in Device Manager for info about
    the device and post back. Start with the device ID. Don't be surprised if
    it turns out to be the game port on an audio card. Some beta drivers for
    Vista do not enable all functions of the devices they support.
