Some processor performance power management features have been disabled due to a known firmware problem. Check with the computer manufacturer for updated firmware
The computer is fine, the hardware is fine. While it might be old, its still works great. I have done alot of optimizations in windows 7 and overall, im impressed with the speed of win 7 on the machine. I ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor that you can find on google and it passed with good marks. In system properties it gets a 3.0 rating, so its seems pretty valid for that it does support the new OSHDD and CD rom drive is all good, since i installed those new devices last year and i have plenty of fans laying around so replacing that is easy. A new agp card was installed year due to a stuck pin in the motherboard vga port. I am going to try to disabling onboard audio and onboard lan and see if that works. Other then, i guess i have to go back to Win XP and try to make it more compatible with my network I have power mangement set to never sleep, never standby so im pretty sure thats off
Some people report that windows 7 is more fussy about memory controllers, so older processors might also be a problem.
