The answer has already be given, but I've seen this question before and the simplest explanation is that the wheels are irrelevent - an airplane's wheels just spin (imagine wearing roller skates on a treadmill while holding on to the bar - you won't go anywhere, but the wheels will spin faster as yo...

Tristan, try "RM Clock Utility" instead. It's a little harder to use, but it can still change the cpu vcore (voltage) and multiplier (speed) You can get it here http://cpu.rightmark.org/download.shtml Ken Well... That one runs anyway - the problem now is figuring out how to use it. The documentatio...

Someone has already mentioned a text/code editor, but here's one I use - SciTE - Scintilla Text Editor Cost - I've been using it for free. More or less the same features as Notepad+ that was mentioned already (tabs etc.) Downside - If you are using it as a .txt editor, when you go to open the file a...

Unfortunately the fundage does not alllow for indiscriminate electronics purchasing. This stupid €700 laptop means I have to budget hard for the rest of the month...

Don't know how much a welcome off me is worth since I'm a relative n00b myself, but welcome to the forums.

There was an article recently benchmarking 24 ATI Radeon PCIe graphic cards that might be of interest - http://www.legitreviews.com/article/474/1/

Well... if you figure out how to use it, let me know. I've downloaded and installed, Vista crashed. Got past that and then i got told I have no admin rights. Got past that and now its looking for a file that apparently didn't install or was never there in the first place.

Thanks - I've actually done all of those. This was something Ken suggested while we were at work, but I forgot what he said the program is. It's something like what I've seen the OCers using to fiddle with voltages, but for laptops/mobile pc's. With all the things you mentioned done I squeeze about ...

Battery life...

So Ken was telling me a couple of ways to try to extend the life of my laptop's battery (at the moment I get about 2 hours) but he referred to a bit of software I could download to adjust the power being used to it's minimum but I don't recall what it was called. Anyone have any thoughts/information...
