Ubuntu :: CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor Doesn't Work?

Jun 1, 2011

I have recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my PC with these configuration:CPU: AMD Athlon 7750 Black EditionRAM: 2GB 1066 MHzVGA: ATI Radeon HD 3200 (on AMD 780G)After I installed Natty Narwhal I felt that my CPU runs at the highest clock all the time (2.7GHz), even if I don't have any program run. I tried all settings for AMD Cool'n'Quiet from mainboard BIOS, but nothing's changed. I installed "CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor" to manually change CPU clock. It recognizes two clock for my CPU, 2.7GHz and 1.35Ghz plus 4 other options; Conservative, Ondemand, Performance and Powersave but the CPU indicator doesn't change on every option!

I am new to ubuntu. I have just one question, everytime I reboot my laptop the CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor goes back to "On Demand." Why is that and can I also set it so it stays on Performance.

Ubuntu :: CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor & Hyperthreading?

Sep 2, 2010

I recently installed 10.04 and really like it so far, however I was wondering if it is possible to scale all hypertheading cores at once, currently I am using an applet for each and have to use several clicks to get into the desired powerstate.

I have read that with dual cores you will not have the option to go into different powerstates because it scales all cores at once, however the logical cores that show up with hyperthreading allow each to have a different power state, and will show up as different states if I use cpufreq-info in the terminal, so it seems like it is allowing it.

Ubuntu :: CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor Won't Stay At 800mhz After Reboot Or A Certain Period Of Time

Oct 26, 2010

The CPU frequency scaling monitor won't stay at 800mhz after reboot or a certain period of time. My goal is to always have my dual core CPU locked at 800mhz to have it run cooler. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on my toshiba u300 laptop.

Server :: Frequency Scaling Not Working - Out Of 11 Steps Can Change To Only 2 Frequencies And Rest Fail To Work

Apr 23, 2011

I am using Intel Xeon X 3440 processor. The processor has 11 frequency steps to chose from. I have used cpufreq-selector for choosing a frequency and it worked fine. But, all of a sudden it stops working out of the 11 steps i can change to only 2 frequencies and rest fail to work. I am clueless as to why it stopped working suddenly.

Ubuntu :: CPU Frequency Scaling Not Working

Jan 17, 2010

I have the CPU frequency scaling applet in the panel and it worked fine when I had 8.10 but now that I'm using Karmic, I cant get it to work correctly!

It won't change the speed to what I tell it to. I click on a different speed and it does nothing.

The CPU spins too slowly and videos lag or it spins at full speed and overheats even though I have nothing open! I really need to be able to adjust it.

Fedora :: 13 - CPU Not Scaling Frequency?

Jun 16, 2010

I am not entirely convinced that my CPU is actually changing frequency as it is meant to. It sometimes changes frequency, but most of the time it is stuck on 800MHz even when doing cpu intensive tasks. Here is information that may or may not be of help:

cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor: 0
vendor_id: GenuineIntel


I notice here that it says between 800 and 800, but does that mean it is currently at 800, or can only be 800.

Ubuntu :: CPU Frequency Scaling Always Enabled - How To Disable

Nov 19, 2010

When I boot my machine (using a dual core 2ghz CPU) I always find myself out of "performance" mode (which I need), using only 1ghz per core.While this is easily fixable with "sudo cpufreq-set -g performance", I don't seem to be able to do it before having control of the machine. I would like to be able to boot with my CPU at full power.I would prefer to disable whatever is scaling down my CPUs to having to inject cpufreq-set to change governor. Anyone has any hint?I use default Ubuntu but I boot into a KDE4 desktop. But the same issue happens booting into the Gnome desktop.

Slackware :: Activating Cpu Frequency Scaling ?

May 15, 2011

Slackware64 13.37 multilib, generic kernel (full install)

BIOS: EIST and C3/C6/C7 State support are enabled.

I'm trying to activate cpu frequency scaling following the tutorial on slackwiki: [url]

I can't load any module.


I've tried all of them but the error is the same. I also rebooted to the huge kernel, however, it gave me the same error.

Ubuntu :: Set Cpu To Powersave Using CPU Frequency Scaling Applet - Set Permanently?

Oct 13, 2010

Trying to set my cpu to Powersave using the CPU Frequency Scaling applet. When I set it to powersave, it goes back to ondemand on its own. On the earlier versions of Ubuntu, I used to be able to set it from the main menu: system>powermanagement, but with 10.10, I don't get that option. Is there any way that I can set it to powersave permanently? I was also able to set it with Ubuntu Tweak, but it does not have that option either.

Slackware :: 13.37 Isn't Loading The Modules - CPU Frequency Scaling ?

Jun 10, 2011

For some reason, it seems that 13.37 isn't loading the modules I need for cpu frequency scaling. I've edited /etc/rc.d/rc.modules so that CPUFREQ is set to on. On 13.1, this would mean the powernow-k8 module would be loaded for my AMD cpu, and the subsequent "ondemand" governor would be loaded. However, for some reason this isn't being done during the boot process. I've tried it using both the generic kernel and the huge kernel (I'd been using huge for a long time before without realizing it.) Has anything changed in 13.37 with regards to CPU frequency scaling?

Slackware :: CPU Frequency Scaling Will Not Load At Boot

Nov 16, 2010

I'm curious as to why some things are not happening at boot time (i end up having to manually load them).

In /etc/rc.d/rc.modules (near the bottom) i have set "CPUFREQ=on" and commented out any modules not specific to my hardware.

I have left this one uncommented:


And below the "### CPU frequency scaling policies:" i have;


uncommented. My scaling governor is set to:


Now whenever i reboot my machine `lsmod` is not showing any of either powernow-k8 or cpufreq* related modules.

I know i could use /etc/rc.d/rc.local with these:


But seems to defeat the purpose of rc.modules, any idea why they are not being loaded at boot... ?

Debian Configuration :: Disable CPU Frequency Scaling In Most Fundamental Way

Jan 18, 2016

I want to turn off frequency scaling permanently and totally in the lowest-level way possible. Is there a kernel command line that can be used or is recompiling the kernel without the governor stuff the only way?

Solved. Just modprobe -r and blacklist the acpi_cpufreq kernel module.

Ubuntu :: Overclocked CPU And Ubuntu Frequency Scaling

Aug 5, 2010

I have a 2.9ghz AMD Athlon II X4, which I have overclocked to 3.65ghz. I know that Ubuntu automatically changes the frequency of the processor to save power, which I like, but it does not show my overclocked frequency. The highest that the frequency scaling will go is the stock clock, at 2.9ghz. Is my processor actually reaching my overclocked speed?

Ubuntu :: Monitor Frequency Out Of Range - 10.04

Oct 16, 2010

I've recently reinstalled a computer with 10.04 for my parents to use, and it worked fine at mine, but after transporting it to theirs and hooking it up to their existing monitor it doesn't seem to work anymore!Well, it boots and I hear it login but I don't get a splash screen and at some point between the bios and the login sound it comes up with Frequency out of Range. On the warning message it displays a frequency of "72.9 kHz / 90.2 Hz" but in the monitor settings its reporting that its operating at horizontal 64,0 kHz and vertical 60.0 Hz. I also don't get any splash screen when starting up, just a flashing _ before the monitor stops things

What I can do however is drop into a the tty console (alt+ctrl+1) and login to the shell but don't really know what things to change from there.Having googled things a bit I've found references to xorg.conf but there's no such thing on my system so I can't edit that to fix this. Likewise I also have found references to fiddling with grub to get into the recovery, but grub doesn't even appear when I boot and I don't know what to press to get it to drop into its menu...

This is really urgent as I need to go home tomorrow at the latest and I want to get my parents system working before then. I also have no spare monitors here and I didn't think to bring with me a liveCD to fiddle with things (only a UNR netbook which I'm posting this from), so the console is the only access I have to the machine.Some specs: Ubuntu 10.04. ATi Radeon 9100 IGP, no proprietary drivers are installed. The monitor is an old CRT that still works beautifully and whose replacement is not an option.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VGA Monitor Doesn't Work With Dongle

Feb 18, 2010

I am experiencing a strange problem. I have two vga monitors and a ATI Radeon HD 3300 embedded on my motherboard. My embedded graphics card has a vga and dvi output. When I plug my monitors in (one uses a dvi to vga dongle) only the one with out the dongle gets a signal. I can swap which monitor uses the dongle and still only the one that does not use the dongle gets a signal (both monitors work, only if they are not using a dongle). Both Ubuntu and Windows are having trouble displaying video, but no trouble detecting the monitors (display settings show both monitors but do not tell me good resolutions for them). My friend has a different dvi to vga dongle, his only has about half of the dvi pins while mine has all the pins. Could the problem be that my dongle has all the dvi pins

Ubuntu Servers :: Vnc Doesn't Work Unless Monitor Is Connected

Feb 17, 2011

Last night I was able to set up my server so that I can just connect vnc. I even was able to be connected at the log on screen so I could select which user I wanted to log in at. For some reason today, I have to have the monitor plugged in all the until the logon screen comes up before vnc will connect. Once the logon screen is up, I then can connect via vnc & select which user I want to logon as. It's odd because it worked last nigh, but today - Nope nada, it doesn't work & I can't explain why. I did clean up - Removing some applications I don't need on my server. (I'm hoping that isn't the problem) It's odd as well because I don't have to be logged on as a user to connect via vnc, I just have to wait until the logon screen is available...Then I can unplugged the monitor & logon.

Ubuntu :: CPU Frequency Monitor In Netbook Edition 10,04

Ubuntu Installation :: Updated To 10.04 And Now Monitor Frequency Is Out Of Range

May 1, 2010

I just updated my Wubi install of 9.10 to 10.04 last night. Everything went well until it required me to reboot the computer. I rebooted, loaded Ubuntu from the startup list, and then the screen went blank and I got "H.V. frequency over range" on the monitor.

I can load the GRUB options, but recovery mode using the most recent kernel does not work. I am entirely unexperienced with using the terminal and command prompt options.

Here's what I have attempted so far:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg this did not do anything, the command was not recognized

$sudo nano xorg.config I don't even know what to do when I get to this screen

and I am about to try $ sudo displayconfig-gtk

I have an ATI Radeon 9100 IGP card
