I'm a student who's trying to implement the DVS on a intel based prossors from a System level i,e from OS. Is there any Win32 API's to do it or C++?

Can anyone suggest where to start as i'm completely new to programming?

This is a certain answer, my 5. I have to agree with Dave.
There is no API calls in Windows to do this. You cannot accomplish this as the O/S level. This is chipset and process level stuff.

If you're really completely new to programming, scrap this project and learn programming first. You're like a guy who just discovered fire then walked into a nuclear power plant saying "I want to play with these knobs and switches!".

Modifying voltage levels without any knowledge of what you're doing will most likely destroy your processor (at worst) or constantly hang the machine (at best).

Ugly truth, my 5.
