Windows 7: Toshiba a215-s7472 clean win7 32 bit install - cpu stuck @ 800Mhz

Toshiba a215-s7472 clean win7 32 bit install - cpu stuck @ 800Mhz

i have made several clean installs of windows 7 32 bit onto my a215-s7472 but the processor gives back a speed of 800Mhz, i installed the drivers as toshiba recommends (tsi4win7.exe) after that ... flash cards dont work (dont care) but speed gets stuck @ 800mhz....
bios 2.30 according to toshiba is the latest

i did a workaround, selected amdppm.sys instead of amk8.sys in device manager / processor... speed went up to 2.19 ghz but stays there, no more Cool n Quiet

--------------------------------------------------------------------
kept working on the issue
i downgraded the bios to 2.00 (originally had 2.30) installed the preferred windows 7 driver (update driver) still gets stuck @ 800 mhz

im going to try with windows 7 64 bit ultimate, to see if it works (right now i have 32bit ultimate)

if anybody has an idea plz post it here :/

(downgraded with CD bios boot upgrade)
--------------------------------
kept on working

Windows 7 64 ultimate had the same issue..... went back to bios 2.30 and 32bit ...

----------------------------------------------------

current config:
Toshiba a215-s7472 bios 2.30
AMD Turion 64x2 TL-64 with amdppm.sys drivers temp @ load ~ 64Celcius

amdk8.sys from widnows 7 gets stuck @ 800mhz,
amdk8.sys from windows xp gets stuck @2.2Ghz and temp rises 20+celcius

i already cleaned/changed thermal paste on the cpu, cleaned vents ....

anybody knows a good workaround to get cool n quiet working with the full throttling
(800mhz to 2.2 ghz ) plz let me know

First try simply booting into your bios and setting everything back to defaults.

No overclocking, no messing around with memory settings. Put everything back to the factory settings.

I don't think this will suffice but this step is absolutely necessary.

it's a laptop....
settings in the bios are simple "enable virtualization... etc etc ... " no memory bus timings etc ...

already did that ... still stuck @ 800mhz

The main thing is that that ALL bios settings are at their defaults, no overclocking, no memory timing changes.

Have you done that?

To have a solid working system, I recommend the following:

Clean Install - Prepare a drive for
Clean Install Windows 7

Immediately after running Windows Update and doing NOTHING more, then
make a System Image backup to an external USB drive.
Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

At this point, do NOT install any drivers or other Toshiba software.

Let me know if the system is stable.

I, too, have a Toshiba laptop, a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5940.

I have used the procedures given in the links above.

Yes, you will need to fetch some, but precious few, updates from Toshiba. I'll get to that after you report back.
