Windows 8. Not showing CPU freq in System Summary


New Member
Im attaching a screenshot below. With windows 7 this always showed up fine. It would idle around 797 mHz and always show the bar graph in real time. Now it just shows the Ratio working fine, but the bar to the left stays white except for small flashes of the correct speed for a milisecond or so. I just updated to the latest v4.10-1820 and it still does the same. Is this a known problem with windows 8?

Beta Version does the same.

Okay, I was testing some options in the configure menu which I have never done before. I went to the safety tab, CPU clock measurement and unchecked the "from BUS clock" option. This seems to have fixed the problem, and it's showing in real time again. Maybe this will help anyone out who's having this problem.
Thanks for the report. I'm not aware of such a problem and it should work with the "From BUS clock" option enabled as well ("From BUS clock" option is the preferred operating mode which provides more accurate real-time clock results). So please enable this mode back + Debug Mode and attach the HWiNFO Debug File so that I can analyze why it doesn't work.
