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.
There's a very nice guide over here where they discuss undervolting different laptops.

jay129,
would just like to share my experience. i have an old pentium m centrino laptop that used to heat up like crazy and shutdown every hour or so. This was obviously unbearable, so I undervolted it using RMclock. it was most effective.
recently, i switched to win7 and discovered a beautiful seting called "Processor power state" in the Power options. here i set the max processor state to 75% (simple point and click). that resolved my overheating problem.
I have another machine, an HP core2 duo and i have experimented with those settings there also. it really helps if you have a heating problem.
regarding hit in performance because of reducing processor speed, i never felt anything. But i am not a gamer.

Sounds like a good clean out wouldn't go amiss either with that.
