CPU bottlenecks

HP Recommended
15-bs123ne
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I upgraded my laptop so that I could do light gaming with 16 gigs of ram and a SSD. But when I play games like GTA V it goes a smooth 35-40 fps and suddenly drops to 8-9fps for a few seconds repeatedly. When I searched what the problem was it was that the CPU drops from 3.4ghz to 0.4ghz /400mhz and the power consumption from 17 watts to 3-4watts. Please someone help me out. Thanks.

HI@Dawif, Welcome to HP Community!

 

Let's start with performing a hard reset on the PC to release any excessive static/power that could have caused the issue. 

  • Turn off the computer. 
  • Disconnect all external connected peripheral devices such as USB storage devices, external displays, and printers. 
  • Unplug the AC adapter from the computer. 
  • Press and hold down the Power button for about 15 seconds to drain any residual electrical charge from the capacitors that protect the memory. 
  • Press the Power button to turn on the computer. 
  • If a startup menu opens, use the arrow keys to select Start Windows Normally, and then press the Enter key. 

Second, you can check if there is Bios update available for your PC, here is the link to download. 

Performing a test on the Hard drive as well as on the Memory from the Hardware diagnostics:  

  1. Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
  2. Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
  3. On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) main menu, click System Tests.
  4. Click Extensive Test.
  5. Click Run once, or Loop until error.
    While the test is running, the time remaining and test result for each component are shown on the screen. The test can take 2 or more hours to complete.

   NOTE:

If the diagnostics are not available when using the F2 menu, run the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics from a USB drive. To download the latest version of the diagnostics, go to the HP Hardware Diagnostics website. For instructions, see Testing from an external USB device.

 

The best way to resolve the issue is by using the HP Guided Troubleshooter:

So I tried your methods and updated the bios but still has that problem. I think it's a software issue because before a year I used to play Rainbow six siege without any lag now it starts to lag. And the extensive test didn't show up to me. The one thing it did solve was that my PC never charged above 96%, but now it does. Thanks for your help.
