Hi,

 

I used a program to 'Unpark' my CPU in Windows 7 and after that I noticed my CPU is not working properly. All programs I use go to 100% CPU almost, and make it overheat. I don't know what I did wrong with this program, but after I tried it, I parked my CPU again but I guess that didn't really park as it was parked by default.

 

How can I fix this problem? It is really annoying to hear the fan of my laptop all the time on my CPU.. I want to park my CPU again and fix this.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

I did unpark my cores with the help of a software, but that is my problem. That caused my CPU problems and I want to go back and park them again.

 

Thanks in advance.

I would try removing the CMOS battery for about a minute that will reset the BIOS it may be a quick fix.

Maybe I asked what exactly is a CMOS battery? Do you mean the power battery for the laptop?

Hmmm laptop!  CMOS battery removal on a LT is chore, instead try removing the main battery then press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. 

 

that "may" work.

No removing the LT's battery cannot cause harm it is a way to reset some LT's,  You are not removing the CMOS battery which is a pain to get at, even that would not cause harm.
