HP OMEN 2018 max cpu locked at base 2.2ghz

HP Recommended
HP OMEN 15 2018
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


My laptop cpu speed will not exceed its max base clock of 2.2ghz.


It was working fine 2 days ago but i foolishly was playing around with notebook fan control to try and cool my laptop down since i dont have omen command  center ( because it didnt have comfort setting for my machine). While messing around with this it affected my battery reading (showing error in task bar). A reboot fixed the battery reading error but i still cant get it to turbo boost. 


I did a system restore to before i installed the app so it reset my registry etc, however im still stuck at max 2.2ghz


I checked my power profiles and im using balanced with max process state at 100% but i seem to be power throttled as if the machine thinks im on battery saver mode. 


Can anyone help me please?
