GREAT NEWS, GANG. INSTALLING WINDOWS SP2 WORKS!!!! Mobilemeter and all of the other aforementioned third party applications used to detect cpu speed work like a charm. Idling at 600mhz on DC power until opening programs, then -- BAM -- jumps up briefly to reflect increased cpu speed/usage. Same goes for Doom3. CPU speed increases to meet the demands of the game without any changes to BIOS, no choppy framerates while playing, then, once again, cpu speed throttles-down when I'm done playing.Computiac, I hope this means you are keeping your 3790.
Thanks, again, Luke, for working through this with us.
