If you’re like me you depend on your laptop a lot. Unfortunately sometimes the manufacturers of our laptops tend to do crazy things that drive you crazy!
For me, I own several Dell laptops and one of them loves to throttle its cpu down (lowers it’s clock speed) whenever I use a 65watt power adapter. To me this is just ridiculous to have a computer running at half it’s speed just because you are using a lower wattage power adapter when you NEED it to run at full capacity.
Well there is a free Windows 32bit program that I use called Notebook Hardware Control that can help you take control of your laptop’s hardware such as throttling of the cpu. Besides that it can do MANY MANY other things as well!
Notebook Hardware Control helps you to:
– control the hardware and system power management
– customize the notebook (open source ACPI Control System)
– prolong the battery lifetime
– cool down the system and reduce power consumption
– monitor the hardware to avoid system failure
– make your notebook quiet
