Resuming from s3 sleep changes clock multiplier

    Here's an issue that I cannot solve.

    System description:
    Motherboard Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DS5 with 790FX northbridge and SB600
    southbridge
    Processor dual core AMD 6000+ (x15 multiplier, real processor clock = 3000
    MHz)
    4 GB DDR2 800 memory in two sticks
    Vista x64 SP1
    All Processor and memory settings in BIOS are set to auto, BIOS is the
    latest one (F6)

    Problem description:
    Every time I resume from S3 (suspend to ram) state the clock multiplier
    awakes changed to x10 instead of x15, making the processor work at 2000MHz
    (or 4000+).
    This is reported so by both CPU-Z and AMD Overdrive and no other parameter
    (memory, FSB, etc.) seems altered.
    AMD Overdrive allows me to bring back the multiplier from x10 to x15,
    restoring both the clock the smile in my face.
    The problem doesn't seem to be related to my motherboard as I found a
    similar one in www.tomshardware.com forums. No solution there, though.

    Question:
    Suggestions, ideas?

  2. What happens if you set the BIOS to it's default, and let it run like that
    for a while + suspending/resuming? What is the default multiplier if you use
    the defult settings?

    CMOS battery?

    What was the last bit of software that you added to the system? (The last
    system change?)

    I assume this is a Vista system - turn off suspend, then reboot delete
    pagefile and defragment - reboot and turn everything back on? (Reboots,
    should be 'cold'!)

    Shots into the darkness, I confess!

    Tony,
    BIOS is set to AUTO which yields x15 as default.
    I am thinking to force it to x15 (no AUTO) and see what happens.
    Last addition was AMD overdrive which, by the way, is the only tool I can
    use for restoring the multiplier to x15 from x10 without rebooting.
    CMOS battery brand new (brand new mobo)
    Right now my biggest issue are the major Internet disruptions.
    This single ISP makes me feel that I am really at an Island!
    My connection doesn't stay up for more than 30 secs.
    I have written this post in notepad and copied it to the clipboard for using
    that small connection window.
    :(

    Tony,
    I manually forced the multiplier to x15 in BIOS setup (no AUTO).
    That fixed the issue.

  5. This is a strange one, Carlos, who would believe there was a connection -
    having followed your equipment developing for quite some time, I did think
    the MB was rather new'ish, but do not forget that when you buy something
    'new', you really have no idea how much time it has spent in storage.
    Moreover, if that item is battery powered, you have no idea how much time
    the battery spent in storage before it was assembled. It may be close to a
    year old without having been agitated much!

    As you know, I have no experience from Vista, but I see enough problems
    posted here that I can say: 'Suspension issues' with Vista does seem to have
    appeared here before. Perhaps Vista IS having an issue here - perhaps it is
    one of those items that we are forced to wait for WU to take care of, all in
    good time?

    On the other hand, did you notice the references I was making to the ACPI
    and Disk related stuff? It is still a long shot, and even if that turns out
    to be the problem it remains uncertain if my prescription will have any
    effect at all - but, as you said, you are not the first one to have qualms
    about this - my experience tells me, that will not prevent you from being
    one of the early excavators to a solution.

    I really cannot see any logical connection between ACPI and the Clock
    Multiplier - perhaps, in the mean-time, you should go for a stand-by-suspend
    and skip the disk part?

  6. Ah, good! Perhaps, then, I shall go over my own setup with a lice-comb,
    because I have taken a liking to those 'auto' options wherever they seem to
    make sense - maybe they don't?
