Undervolting notebook cpu.



Thank you for posting your query on HP Community,


HP PC's uses a customized BIOS setting of which some features including overclocking are locked. HP has locked a few settings on your computer which are being managed by the system configuration as the device is configured to its optimal performance.


There's no way of resetting or changing these locked settings via HP articles or assistance,

You could unlock and make changes at your own discretion using 3rd party tools, however, HP doesn't recommend the same nor has information about the tools used.


You may try updating the Bios, chipset and graphics card drivers on your PC either from our HP support website, using this link or download it using HP support assistant. 

I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link:


HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook


  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.


Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available


You may refer to the steps suggested in this support document for - HP Notebook PCs - Reducing Heat Inside the Laptop to Prevent Overheating


Keep me posted how it goes


Thank you and have a wonderful weekend
