What is the Windows 7 GPS driver trick?

I just started getting blue screen memory dumps in Windows 7 last night on my 1010. Not sure what is up yet.

Default It was speedstep - 09-28-2009, 07:31 PM

I was having freezing all the time with my mini 1010. It was constantly freezing on every OS I tried, it got the worst with Windows 7, as to where it would lockup sometimes right after login.

I did some searches, and saw some eluding to the Smart Battery Device driver being the problem. I had updated this from Windows update on Win 7 and checked it with the driver on intel's site and they matched. I still had the problem.

I ran all the diag tests, and everything passed, so I started looking in the bios and thought I try disabling speedstep. That worked! Havent had a lockup in 3 days.
