Windows 7: Undervolting my HP laptop

Undervolting my HP laptop

Hi there. i have a HP Pavilion dv5-1002nr notebook. I've been trying to undervolt it for quite some time now but haven't been able to. i'm no computer programmer but i'm not dumb either.
okay first things first.
I tried using RmClock. but it didnt recognize my cpu,which i read,means that i can't undervolt my cpu. many forums asked to me to do a whole bunch of stuff in the "advanced settings" page...the thing is my version of Rm Clock doesnt have an advanced settings page. is that normal?
i then tried Notebook hardware control.
but it doesn't allow me to do anything to the voltage control. i can see the tab and everything but i can't seem to type in any digits for the multipliers etc. And the acpi control tab says that it's not "configurated" for my system.
so after reading and pouring over thousands of forums,i give in.
help!
please let me know if you need me to upload any other data on my side.

Thanks Pebbly. I would feel more comfortable to get rep from this if you also rep DarkDavil, he's the member who wrote the post I linked and brought this to my attention.

hey Kari,
Now you see,ive read more than a hundred different threads about "how to undervolt"...if you'll go back and read my post again...you shall see that the problem is with the software that's supposed to help me undervolt. which leads me to ask the question- is my laptop not supported? or is there something wrong with the software? or with my system.
and to Pebbly- hope you get why i want to undervolt. it not only cools your notebook but also lengthens the life of your notebook and its battery.
Anyway...Still seeking help.

Jay, the link I gave was the best I could do. I do not know this subject too well, but remebering how I managed to cool my laptop using this method made me post that link.
