Hi @usimike,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community.  


Thank you for posting your query, I will be glad to help you.

 

It is normal for a CPU's clock speed to change over time as it adjusts to the demands of the system and the workload being performed. This is known as dynamic frequency scaling or CPU throttling, and it is a feature designed to optimize performance while minimizing power consumption and heat generation.

 

However, if you are experiencing significant fluctuations in clock speed or notice that your CPU is consistently running at lower speeds than it should, it could be a sign of an issue. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the problem.

 

  • Check your power settings: Make sure your power settings are not set to power-saving mode, which can limit the maximum clock speed of your CPU. You can check this in the Windows Control Panel or in your computer's BIOS.
  • Check your cooling system: Overheating can cause a CPU to throttle its clock speed to prevent damage. Check that your cooling system is working properly and that your CPU is not overheating.
  • Update your BIOS: A BIOS update can sometimes fix issues related to CPU clock speed and performance.
  • Check for background processes: Make sure there are no background processes or programs running that are using up CPU resources and causing your CPU to throttle its clock speed.

 

I hope this helps. 
 

Take care and have a good day.
