    Turbo Boost Monitor Problem

    Wayward

      Situation: Turbo Boost Monitor is open and runnning normally. Put computer to sleep and then wake from sleep. Turbo Boost Monitor is still running but is non-reponsive, i.e., shows no activity.

       

      Closing and reopening Turbo Boost Monitor (SignalIslandUI.exe in task manager) does not fix the problem.

       

      To fix the problem, TurboBoost.exe must be killed with taskkill via an elevated command prompt, e.g., taskkill /PID /f

       

      Reopen Turbo Boost Monitor after taskkill and it works normally again.

       

      My system:

      Windows 7 x64

      Intel 2600k not overclocked

      Asus P8P67 Deluxe

      Intel Turbo Boost Monitor v2

          So what is your problem now?

            If Turbo Boost Monitor is open before the computer is put to sleep, Turbo Boost Monitor no longer works after waking from sleep.

              Why do you have to open TurboBoost monitor? Is it runned manually?

               

              Is'nt it suppose to run automatically at windows startup? There should be a gadget on your desktop to indicate when the processor is changing its speed.

                I start it manually. You can right click on it and have it start with Windows or not.

                 

                That, however, is not the problem. The problem is that the desktop gadget shows no activity after the computer wakes from sleep.

                  Ok I see what you mean. If you go to the services under administrative tools in the control panel and look for Intel TurboBoost right-click and choose properties. Select Startup type as automatic. Reboot and check if it now monitors after sleep. (See to it that the gadget is not run at startup - so you won't see the gadget after startup but you have the desktop icon).

                    To run Turbo Boost Monitior, all I have to do is Start > All Programs > Intel > Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology Monitor.

                     

                    Once it is running on the Desktop, right click and check or uncheck "Run at Startup."

                     

                    I'll set it to run at start up and see if it still works after waking from sleep.

                      See to it that at the Services under Administrative Tools in the Control Panel you set TurboBoost Startup Type as Automatic. That is click Start, then Control Panel, System and Security, Administrative Tools, Services, locate Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor 2.0, right click and choose properties. Under Startup type select Automatic then click OK. Reboot your computer and check.

                        The service installs as Manual and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology Monitor is added to the Startup folder of the individual user (on Admin account, yes). Just tested, Automatic start seems to do it. :$

                         

                        What happened to the Desktop Gadget of version 1?!? I hope this post isn't another negative that we're having with this version. The thread's here, if anyone's got some info.

                          I don't have problem with Turbo Boost Monitor but with Turbo Boost. When I play a game Turbo Boost turns off by itself. I don't know why.

                            I think I should see Turbo Boost technology in BIOS, shouln't I? but I can't see it in BIOS.
