i7 Q840 in HP Envy 14

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Having some strange problems, that only creeped up in the last few days. During game play of a heavy load game such as Mass Effect 2 whatever, the CPU lowers it's multiplier to such low levels that the game is practically un-playable.

Example, it will run @ a multiplier of 23, 5 mins into the game the multiplier will drop to 4 or five. So I would go from 3Ghz to 500-700Mhz. The temps never really go any higher that 70-75 Celsius.

I have not found a way to adjust SpeedStep to prevent this, nor can I figure out what is causing this.
