I have a hp G60-244dx, which features the nVidia GeForce 8200M G graphics chip, and nVidia nForce chipset.
It runs Windows Vista Home Basic.
I don't use this for anything beyond web browsing, email, reading news, etc. No heavy graphics use, no gaming.
Is there a reliable way to underclock the GPU, so as to reduce the overall heat generated by the laptop?
EDIT: I tried nVidia's System Tools, but I could only see how to overclock with that tool. I want to underclock.
Right now I have an idle PC, doing nothing. The nVidia GPU reads 72C (161F), which is extremely hot for doing NOTHING. As a result the laptop's fan is constantly whirring at an audible level. I don't need high performance graphics. I especially don't need the whirring sound. How can I turn it DOWN?!?!!?
I would also consider modifying the DSDT for the ACPI BIOS, but I can't figure out how to do that either.
