    Windows 10 power options/ processor power management settings gone.


    Hi,

    Im new here to the forum because i have an odd issue and i can't find anything on the net so i thought i ask here.

    I am on Windows 10 - 64 version 1607 build 14393.1358

    The problem is that i don't have the options for processor power management anymore in power options. I don't know if this is necessary but its kinda odd.

    The other thing is that i tried to install my AMD X370 chipset drivers and it worked only in device manager it keeps saying that i am using an driver from 2015 under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.

    Any advice?

    Thnx in advanced.

    Hi, same build.. can you please post a screenshot similar to this to confirm what you're seeing?

    To post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon to the left of the video icon above your post

    Normally Win 10 takes care of all basic drivers- I'm wondering why you need to install any manually? This is normally only necessary if MS gets it wrong.

    There might be a clue here:

    And you could refer this to the ASUS forum.

    Thank you for the link but this also didn't work for me.

    What do you mean by refering this to the Asus forum? What does Asus has to do with this?

    Could this have anything to do with it?
    I installed the latest AMD X370 chipset drivers but MS keeps reporting this driver.

    ASUS:

    - from your specs. Or is the PC you are concerned with actually different?

    Not sure what you mean about MS reporting a driver... Win 10 may replace a driver you've installed with its own unless you protect it.

    Seems AMD is doing sthg clever: is this relevant?

    No i am on the CH6 motherboard.

    If you can see in the picture above, MS is reporting a driver from 2006 instead of the new AMD SATA driver.. I installed all drivers but in device manager MS is still revering to 2015 SATA controller driver.

    The RYZEN power plan does nothing for me.

    Hide or Show Windows Updates in Windows 10 Windows 10 Windows Update Activation Tutorials
    Updates are installed automatically, with no need to select which updates are needed or not needed. In rare cases, a specific driver or update might temporarily cause issues with your device, and in this case you will need a way to prevent the problematic driver or update from reinstalling automatically the next time Windows Updates are installed.

    They are not necessary. Any options you get are the result of decisions by the processor designers.

    My advice is to forget the subject.

    Alternatively, you might wish to try to track down a copy of the MS document Processor Power Management in Windows 7 [its original link no longer works - it was published in 2010]. I have never seen any updates let alone a Windows 10 version.
