So i just updated to the new catalyst-dkms 13.1 drivers from the community repo. I rebooted my machine after it was all done, and i was greeted with a lovely message.
My computer then powered it self off, then back on. My PC then told me it experienced an Overclocking Issue.
I don't overclock, this system is powerful enough as-is. I tripple checked my bios, all overclocking was set to off, Turbo Boost was set to off too.
The only thing that i can think of is a setting that said "Allow real-time changes in OS" was set to disabled. Should i turn this on? I do see my cpu scale its self down from time to time when the system is idle.
I never installed any cpu freq controll software. I believe the default kernel does have some time of scaling/governer built-in. is there a way to set this to off? like a full performance mode, instead of "on demand" ?
This looked to be a 1 time error, but it did make me a little nervous. I rebooted the computer and everything passed on start-up. i hope it was just a hiccup. Has anyone experienced a similar situation?
i put arch on everything.
Devices on arch: Desktop (self built), Dell XT Laptop, RaspberryPi, HTPC, PogoPlug, and my Web Server
I ran into that, too, but I was overclocking then. Probably just a hiccup as you said, if you worry very much you can clear CMOS. In case you missed any option, that is. No idea how it could have accidentally changed itself, or whatever.
AFAIK, the CPU does scale depending on load if you haven't specified it otherwise, but I'm not too sure here.
I had the same problem; it seems to occur if I have my usb to PS2 controller adapter plugged in; when unplugged it boots fine.
Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !
