I keep getting throttle problems
Where an app goes slow and then speeds up to double and then goes slow again.
I noticed it mostly happens when Anti-Virus and MS-Defrag are running, but it also happens at other times when no background stuff is running.
In my animated programs i had to put timing / loop-counters in to control the pulsing, like below.
( program stuff here )
'get fastest loop time the computer does.
if time_min = 0 then time_min = time2-time1
if time2-time1 < time_min then time_min = time2-time1
if time2-time1 > time_max then time_max = time2-time1
time_avg = (time_min+time_max)/2
time3 += time_avg
'get number of loops in quater second.
if time3>=.25 then
for a as integer = 1 to number_of_balls
balls(a).speed = ( (balls(a).radius*2) / (loop_count) ) ' change radius*?? to adjust speed
Loop Until Inkey <> ""
I use FreeBasic for doing my programs.
I've got my power options set to "max power usage" when plugged in, and still i'm getting throttle pulsing problems.
I've got a Compaq Presario CQ60-210 US Notebook PC
AMD Athlon X2 64 , Running Windows 7 64 bit with 4 Gig of Ram.
Is there a know problem with other people reporting throttle pulsing ??
