Acer Aspire 7552G-6061 Throttling Problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a laptop so that I did not have to bring my desktop to and from college anymore. I searched for a laptop in my budget that could still run all the games I play and came upon the Acer Aspire 7552G-6061. It runs everything well, but recently I have noticed a random stuttering occuring. Whether it be in game or just browsing the web or typing up a paper, a random freeze or stutter occurs. I talked to a friend about this and he said its either the CPU or GPU throttling down. He also said there are some programs that can help fix this throttling problem, but I have been unable to find one for this particular laptop. If anyone knows a fix for this or could provide further insight it would be greatly appreciated because this stuttering is so annoying.

Thanks

How often does this happen? Is it on battery power or AC, or both?

Have you tried setting windows power option to maximum performance to see if the problem goes away?

You may want to verify that the hard drive is not going into a power saving mode. I heard about a program called QuietHDD that has helped the HDD from activating the APM features causing stuttering in laptops.

Umm, well, it varies. Sometimes it will be frequent, other times it will be fine for longer periods of time. 99% of the time it is running on AC. Since I am getting ready to go to bed for class in the morning, Ill go ahead and turn on High Performance in Windows Power Option and test it out after class tomorrow. I went ahead and looked at that link and all I saw for its purpose was it fixing a clicking sound unless it does more and Im just missing that part.

ThrottleStop. But my guess is its the harddrive stopping and not the cpu/gpu..

Turn on the high performance power option in Windows and tweak it so the minimum CPU state is 100% and the HDD never turns off.

And download ThrottleStop to lock the multi: http://forum.notebookreview.com/hardware-components-aftermarket-upgrades/531329-throttlestop-guide.html

Well, ThrottleStop most likely would have fixed the problem, but it only works with Intel CPU's Im guessing considering it told mine was not compatible with it. Any other ideas?

Hey RLeMuix I also got the same laptop with the exact same problem.

But I thought it was the HHD, because when I bought the laptop I also bought a SSD (Solid State Drive), so I got 1 SSD (C:\) and 1 HHD (D:\).

When I play a game or type in Word, when the program is on the SSD, I don't get random freezes, but when the software is on the HHD I have ( I thought).


As soon I get my SSD back (it was broken) I will test it again, so then you have your answer.
