I bought a HP DV5-1003NR recently.

It has a Turion X2 RM-70 (2 GHz), and it's running Vista SP1.

Does anyone know of a way outside of the BIOS to disable AMD's CPU throttling?

Chat with HP was no help.

Looking around the web I haven't been able to find a solution.

I like the laptop except for one or two issues, I just want to be able to kill the throttling.

I want to disable it when I'm running off AC.

As of right now, it still runs while on AC.

No suggestions at all?

BTW: I want this to be free.

...is your laptop too slow?

its probably in your BIOS, or maybe..maybe.. the software installed on your laptop by HP. besides, your CPU should speed up when you're doing something

Not in the BIOS.

Things HP has had me try:

Change to "High Performance" in the Power Options. Did nothing.

Turn it off in the BIOS. Not there.

Remove an application. Application not installed.

Create a registry key and flash the BIOS. Still throttling!

BTW: Who should I believe? An independent company or the company that made unreliable CPU throttling?
