Dmesg output from Evo n115 laptop

Afraid it's not that informative.  /proc/cpuinfo reports:

When I try powernow-k6, I get the following:

michaelrlt$ sudo modprobe powernow-k6
FATAL: Error inserting powernow_k6
No such device
michaelrlt$ sudo modprobe powernow-k7
FATAL: Error inserting powernow_k7
No such device

I also get a repeat of the message:

[17259392.920000] powernow: PowerNOW! Technology present. Can scale: frequency
and voltage.

when I probe powernow-k7, but not for powernow-k6.
