Problem with A6-3420M - When i gaming the clock goes to 200mhz

Hi Everyone;


I Just bought a notebook with a6-3420m and 7690m from HP, DV6- series.

When i going to play games, the game lags sometimes. So, to check what happening, i opened cpu-z and the game windowed, and for my surprise the clock is very unstable 200-2000mhz. I Tried to overclock with k10stat but happened the same.

I'm using catalys 12.11B4, and i noticed, when i get the driver from HP, the clock is more stable, if i set in k10stat 2200, the minimum clock i noticed with the original driver was 2000mhz. But those drivers are so outdated and get poor perfomance, inlusive on battlefield 3.

Is there anyone here with any idea to solve this? :(

Is everything set to use Max Perfomance.
Using SEVEN x64 SP1 with CCC 12.11BETA4.
Already tried with Windows 8, but still the same!

Sorry for my bad english! :hello:

Best regards.

  1. could be a temperature issue.
  2. i have the same cpu and find 12.8 is the best driver for it so far. besides that i would use amd over drive for over clocking, if you want to oc.
