What are MTRR's?
Is energy saving an MTRR?
And what are the APIs for Energy-saving (they don?t appear in my old Borland 10 Mb doc)
If you have them, can you cut&paste and post thme here, or point me to where i can download them (please, not the platform SDK! I have an old RS232, it would take almost a week to download!)

You can browse the Platform SDK online, without downloading anything :

I wouldn't rely on these outdated and annoying to use hlp files...

Hola sloppy,
MTRR = Memory Type Range Registers, they're used to change expecially caching attributes of memory ranges. They can be changed only in ring0, thus no Win32 user mode.

I'm aafraid energy saving has nothing to do with MTRR, for Energy Saving you should look at BIOS extensions.

Thanks Maverick,
then Energy Saving is also ring0?

Okay, I am re-reading your messagenow:

Yes, thinkingof it, maybe that?s why i write so many bugs? I can say: I?m not sloppy any more, it?s the docs I use ;)


And Maverick, va bene, so MTRRs are Intel register to 'play' with the cache, right?
But then i dont know why I saw somewhere a prog using them for Energu saving stuff?
