I have questions on laptop cooling by "undervolting the CPU"

I have Vista Home Premium on an HP Compaq laptop. The CPU is AMD Athlon dual-core QL-62, 2000Mhz, 2 cores, 2 logical processors.

Here's one "guide" to undervolting for the AMD and I'm wondering what program would be good for this? - this guide talks about using RMclock v2.35. :

Would this program work well for this with my CPU?

Also, another question : Is there any way in Vista ITSELF where I can do the task of undervolting WITHOUT any special program to download - in other words, does Vista contain this capability and if so HOW do I do it?

I have another question 2 add 2 the above post.............

Here's another question I have :

The guide at the link above I gave in my post, does that guide to undervolting look ok? Does it cover everything and is it correct in what to do?

Thanks again for replies.

Personally

Personally, I would avoid this sort of thing. If you don't know what you're doing, and even then if you're not EXTREMELY careful, you'll find yourself in a world of trouble.

What exactly is it you're hoping to achieve by this? And is it worth risking a laptop that is essentially useless?
