Hi @Asif221,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community.  


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

 

It seems like you're mentioning an HP Victus gaming laptop with an RTX 3050 GPU that should have a power draw of 75 watts, but it's only drawing 30 watts. There could be a few reasons for this behavior.

 

  • Power Management Settings: Modern laptops often have power management settings that can dynamically adjust the power draw of components to balance performance and battery life. It's possible that the laptop is currently in a power-saving mode or is not utilizing the full power of the GPU to conserve energy.
  • Driver Issues: Sometimes, driver issues can lead to reduced performance or power draw. Make sure that you have the latest graphics drivers installed for your RTX 3050. Manufacturers often release driver updates that can improve performance and stability.
  • Thermal Throttling: Laptops are designed to prevent overheating, so if the GPU temperature rises too high, the laptop might throttle its performance to avoid damage. This could result in lower power draw and reduced performance. Check your laptop's temperatures and consider using cooling pads or adjusting your usage environment to improve cooling.
  • BIOS/UEFI Settings: Some laptops allow users to tweak performance settings in the BIOS/UEFI interface. It's possible that there's a setting that's limiting the power draw of the GPU. However, caution is advised when changing these settings, as it could potentially lead to instability if not done correctly.
  • Software Limitations: Some games or applications might not fully utilize the GPU's capabilities, leading to lower power consumption. Make sure that you are running applications that can stress the GPU adequately to observe its full power draw.
  • Battery and Power Source: Laptops can behave differently depending on whether they are running on battery power or plugged into an outlet. When on battery power, laptops often reduce power consumption to extend battery life. If you're testing power draw on battery, try testing while the laptop is plugged in.

 

I hope this helps. 
 

Take care and have a good day.

I have done everything including resetting the laptop,and after uninstalling the graphic driver completely and again installs the power is drawing correctly after a restart or a shut down it's again locked to 30 watts
