Sorry, seems I read your post wrong, I didn't realise you mean EIST wasn't working at all.
Anyway, RMClock does a better job, if you're concerned about heat.
It should work on most computers, and once you've got it set up it's fully automatic.
It's just a matter of spending some time adjusting the steps for it to change speeds, adjusting voltages, etc.
There are some better guides out there than I could write about how to use it, so if you're stuck there is help available.
