It's not going to go to max clock at idle

it's fine. It doesn't need to be running full speed at 10% usage.

Of course...pee!!

what are we looking at?

the fucking cpu is stuck in 0.39

is it on battery or is it plugged in? Maybe check the power option.

The device does not recognize the battery, only a direct connection

Really like this

Just set power to high performance and make sure you use the correct AC adapter

Try at full load.

Check temps.

That's normal. The clock speed will go up once you start putting more strain on the system.

no, there's an issue where it doesn't allow the computer to run any faster than that. I've run cad software and had it still throttled down to under a gHz

Its possible that the number task manager is showing you isn't accurate. Is the computer actually running worse than normal?

I thought our standard answer was install Linux.... Just kidding

I have a fix for that. You're currently experiencing throttling issues. You can fix that using Throttlestop.

what is theottlestop

If you put some sort of computational load on the machine, does the clock speed go up? Something like can peg your CPU usage pretty quickly, which should cause the speed to go up. It's not useful to measure that when the machine isn't doing much, since this is an intentional power-saving technology.

The performance is stable in all cases

The problem might have come from
Intel management driver, you could check for more info online

You could check more info about the problem here

This problem was initially on Windows 11, now I am on 10 and the same problem

When mine does that, I unplug it and plug it back in, and it resets the power settings back to "plugged in" and allows it to run faster again.

The battery is dead, I can't try this

maybe try manually adjusting the power settings then? If not through windows, maybe in the bios?

Make sure that's not the thermal throttling trying to cool cpu down by dropping speeds

What you mean

when processors get hot, they slow down to try not to burn themselves, usually when the cooling system is not working properly

The laptop does not heat up at all, even the fan does not work because the device is stable on this performance, but I tested the fan and it is fine by the way

Faulty battery?

happened to me with x270 CPU throttled, just replace battery

same with me, a dead battery causes the laptop to throttle down to save power.

It's power limit throttling. As far as I can tell... this range of ThinkPads do this for absolutely no fucking reason at all.

My "fix" was to disable the Nvidia GPU, and to prevent the CPU from going above like 1.8 GHz. Then, it would never get into territory where it thought it needed to Throttle.

The real fix for me was to ditch the whole platform and go to a new AMD-based ThinkPad.

Maybe has more specific tips, if you want to pursue actually fixing the issue on your laptop. Something about flashing an alternative firmware to allow you to unlock the throttling settings.

I think that the problem with using a non-original charger for a period not exceeding a week is not a problem with the graphics card

You need the right ac adapter. Wart and ampere. Maybe there are two types. For example 65 watt and 95 watt. Make bios default. Make bios update. Maybe the ac plug in den notebook is the problem
