G73SW - Slow on battery mode

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

So as the title suggests, my G73SW runs really slow while on battery mode rather than AC mode. (particularly graphic related things).

I did a fresh install of windows on this machine and installed the power 4 gear thing, and have it set to performance mode.

Anyone know of a fix to this? It's like the GPU or CPU or something is not getting enough power from the battery.. and if that's the case is their no feasible fix, batteries just can't push that much energy into it?

Thanks

Battery mode is meant to save battery, therefore it holds back the CPU and GPU from using too much power. Since the both CPU and GPU is not getting the power needed, both would slow down.

The only way around that is to put it in Performance Mode, and won't have any throttle or hold back, unless the CPU/GPU is overheating.

Power saver mode downclocks the CPU primarily, dims the screen, and pretty much turns off all extra features that would help save power. Trying to play anything aside from minecraft is not really that advised. tongue.gif
