so, it seems i have a little problem here, not sure where it comes from but i have a suspicion.
ive applied cpu overdrive recently on my windows 7 installation and found out that in the amd overdrive section, the cpu button seems to be disabled, although it is enabled and can be modified in its particular sub menu. basically it is enabled and active via its sub menu, but in the overview section it is being shown as unavailable and disabled.
since ive applied these two patches, amd cpu overdrive becomes disabled and reset to default speed on every reboot.
anyone knows how to fix this? uninstalling the patches, reinstalling catalyst does not help. it seems the microsoft patches make some changes to the power profile and scheduler that maybe cannot be reverted. i think though it should be possible to make the control center override these.
