I'm trying to slow down my CPU to play an old game (Windows 98). I've installed
indicator-cpufreqand after using this help I managed to get it to work.
However, I'm only able to select certain speeds; from 2.30 GHz to 1.20 Ghz. For the game to run even better I want to slow down a bit more. How can I do this?
So I used
cpufreq-set to manually change the CPU speed and it seems that I can't go below 1.2GHz. Is this a build-in limit? Can I change it? I looked into my BIOS but couldn't find any 'CPU Frequency' settings. I can't use DOSBox because the game is not a DOS game.
I'm using a HP EliteBook8570w: Intel Core i7-3610QM @2.30GHz x 8, 64-bit
