Oh yes that happens, also notice your clocks are lower...
Guys, my notebook started to freeze again, and it's the new replacement one, I opened a new topic explaining my whole case: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Display-and-

As in previous posting HP 7690 is NOT a 7000 series GPU (false advertising - we should sue) is only a 6770 gpu with it's memory oc by 100 which we could all have done. I dot my hands Ina friends dv6 with 6770m gpu, I oc it to match the 7690m with default drivers and the 6770m had a 1.2% increase in 3dmark11 and 2.1% increase with 3dmark06. Once again I believe this is because the7690m is ot a real gpu and no time was spent developing drivers for it to try and make it shine more then the 6770m.
I don't mind the decrease in clock speed with 12.2 because I theory lower speeds means cooler temps and laptops always burn out fast. Maybe in the future when a new game comes out that needs more kick, oc up a bit.

@CJacksonLASD What do you mean? I have the dv6t 6c00 (same as your computer but with a smaller screen). Are you saying the drivers on the HP website (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html) aren't the correct ones? What version of the driver do you have? Did the crashing stop after you installed the correct ones? Can you still play SWTOR?

The drivers that were no listed were the USB 3.0 and the network drivers were not listed. For example my computer has the Realtek LAN and wireless card installed but it's not listed under my laptop model drivers. The 3.0 were also wrong limiting them to 2.0 speeds. But with those wrong who knows what else might be wrong. But with everything I have now my laptop works better with swtor and bf3. I'm running 12.2 preview drivers for gpu that was the last thing I installed. Only minor hangs and crashes.
