Windows 7: Windows kernal driver stopped responding and has now recovered?

20 Jul 2012   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Overclocking is increasing the processor clock frequency so that the processor will run faster (and with more problems).

Overclocking should only be performed on a unit rated for such and with an oversized cooling unit to dissipate the additional heat. If you want troubles, then be sure to overclock. If the manufacturer had meant for the unit to run at a higher frequency, then the unit would come from the factory running at a higher frequency.

I'm not familiar with your laptop. Hopefully, there is simply a bios setting that must be restored to its default value.

You might want to ask your brother what he did.

You might want to go the manufacturer's website and fetch the manual for your laptop. The manual will probably give you info on overclocking.

Is the fact that your System specs do not reflect the installation of SP1 (service pack 1) and oversight or reflect the actual state of your laptop?

A simple rule to remember for all lap top users. Overclocking creates extra heat. Laptop don't have a way of dissipating/removing the extra heat. Extra heating will cause problems or destroy your computer.
Have who ever overclocked your computer to set it back to default. They should know how to do that if they new how to overclock it in the first place.
