yes it says i can run it, and i think the issue is fixed now someone on reddit gave me a file called noDPTF stand for dynamic platform and thermal framework it added something to the registry, then we made some setting in throttle stop, and the now it feels like there is no cap on the CPU, its safe tho right?

1. Make Sure Your Computer Has Enough Room To Expel Heat:
While facing power limit throttling, the first thing to check is your computer system setup. It will help ensure that the airflow is not restricted by anything like a wall, mat, or anything else. If you are using the laptop, then the cushion on which you have kept your laptop can also restrict the airflow.

This acts as blockage and does not allow the proper airflow, which is important to regulate the system’s temperature. Hence, you should ensure that your computer has enough room to expel heat from all sides.

2. Keep Your Computer Away From Vents, Windows, And Other Producers Of Heat:
If your computer system is kept in a warm area, then the power limit throttling can occur. Ensure that your system is not exposed to direct sunlight or high-temperature areas. It can increase the temperature of the system and cause power throttling.

That is why it is advised to keep your system away from vents, windows, and other areas that can produce heat. So, from these two methods, it is clear that the positioning and setup of the system play a crucial role; you can not keep it anywhere.

hello sorry about about my late reply, but those drivers were one of the ones causing the issue, because they dynamically power throttled the laptop, and that's what the program i used removed so i don't  want to make the performance worse again, but i am having really bad battery life even before the no dptf fix, so whats up with that? ever since i reinstalled windows it has been awful also the laptop is really slow on bootup it like stutters and takes a while to be responsive
