I don't know if this is the right place. But i'm playing a bit whit some older thin clients for some retro stuff. Among my thin clients is an HP GT7720, featuring an AMD X2 Turion ZM-84. Installed is windows XP and on another hard disk i tired Windows 7. And than i noticed the higher power consumption on Windows XP. The thing is to use less power, so i monitor the hardware and noticed an Idle Consumption on Windows 7 from about 27 Watt and on XP of 44 Watt. So i wondered and found the reason. Monitoring the Hardware whit HWinfo on W7 i noticed the CPU speed jumping up an down. From 575 Mhz to 2300 Mhz. And on Windows XP it stays at 2300 Mhz.
And after some untalented Google Skills i found out i need the Cool'n'Quiet driver. But I'm unable to find it. Only found Linux drivers, but not for XP.
