G505s CPU "throttling" while playing light games

Q: G505s CPU "throttling" while playing light games

I purchesed my refubished G505s back in 2014. I orignally got it for playing minecraft with my friends, but we have moved on the League of Legends since then. I started playing League in mid 2015 and I had no problems running it. Until a couple months ago when my FPS would ramdomly drop to around the 20 FPS range from about 50-60 FPS. Last night it happened again while I was playing a game and I thought it might have something to do with my processor because I have an intergated card. I opened task manager and sure enough my CPU speed had dropped from the normal 2GHz to 850MHz. I called it throttling for lack of a better term, I do not know what is causing my processor to do this, or how to fix it. Somebody please help. The Specs for the model I own are as fallows:AMD A10-5750M APU with Radeon HD graphics6 gigs of DDR3 800Mhz I terabyte 5400rm hard driveWin10

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been playing games on my new i5 6400 for around a year, after my PC had some issues, and I had to get a new processor. For that year, whenever I played any games, such as Overwatch, Rainbow 6 Siege or Paladins, my CPU would run at around 50-75% of the capacity. This kept my PC pretty cool, and the games ran fine on Medium to High for ages. Recently though, pretty much every game I play has been throttling my CPU and sometimes my GPU at 80-100%, most of the time being at 100%. I am scared of playing anything anymore because I don't want to ruin the PC or any of the parts because I am a student (Games Art) so I don't exactly have much money to use.

I've tried scanning my PC for any problems (malwarebytes), I've tried lowering the graphics settings of the Games I play, I've tried monitoring the Temperature of the CPU to see if It starts to Bottleneck, which it hasn't been doing.

If there's anything I can do to fix it, It would be greatly Appreciated.

My specs for my PC are

i5 6400 2.7Ghz
GTX 1060 6gb
12gb RAM
Windows 10
64bit
 

A:CPU Throttling at 100% when playing Games.

Another thing, Its not anything to do with background apps. I was Playing overwatch and had Task Manager open, and overwatch Took up 93% of my CPU.

Usually its around 50%

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

Hello, I'm new here. For the past couple of months my laptop starts to throttle it's gpu at 67C,  which is quite low. I have turned off hp coolsense and have selected high performance but no use as it's locked at 67C. The gpu is GT 740M 2gb DDR3. Nvidia control panel also is configured for best performance as well.  Please help. Updating nvidia drivers don't help as well. I have updated the pc software from hp updates directly too, so I don't think it's due to bad updates. By the way I'm not sure if this throttling issue was there from beginning as I didn't use a monitoring application until I noticed the massive fps drop in games after a minute or so.

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

What happens is the system with will just freeze. Occasionally the audio that was playing with stutter infinitely like a skipping CD. Rarely I notice the system will stutter once or twice before totally freezing, happens in a couple seconds. But mostly, it just stops. When it freezes, the only option is to hard reboot.

I have had this problem for quite some time, probably about a year or two. At first I really didn't notice any consistency in the crashes, seems totally random. Some times it would freeze while browsing any random page, be it videos, forums, ad ridden or ad free. Any browser as well; Chrome, Firefox, IE. It also crashes when playing some games although not other games that have higher requirements; e.g. Guaranteed to crash, probably within 10 mins, if I play '8-bit Boy' on Steam (about as low res as implied) but I can go on 4 and 5 hour binges on Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim with no crashes. I have recently noticed that YouTube videos (any video) is a guaranteed crash within a 20-30 seconds.

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

CPUID, W7, 400W, plenty of air, disc space.

So the low-down: I have a 3650HD (which I need to upgrade, but should not be an issue in this case) and two DVI monitors connected. One is an Acer 22", the other 19" Hanns-G (at obviously different resolutions). I have the latest drivers (I've tried unistalling, reinstalling, installing old drivers). Despite this, in just about every game (generally 3D installed games, not flash or anything) I have tried, after some period of time it freezes (the game itself, I can use alt-tab, etc to switch to desktop and everything runs fine, except for an eventual notice that the game or video driver has stopped working [i.e. most valve games tell me hl2.exe has stopped responding/working]). Quality of graphics do not seem to matter very much (I usually make it through about 1 min of Crysis before the issue popping up, same as COD4 on low settings).

Any ideas? Also note I have tried disabling the second monitor and get the same results.

Edit: Other forums have suggested a better PSU is needed, so that may be the problem.

I played through the entire game, no problem, but now I am starting to get BSODs when Demolishers charge at me and knock me down. The first time it happened the computer just locked up with a black screen, sound continued to work but it wouldn't accept any sort of input and I had to power down. Second time it happened I get a BSOD. I used to get BSOD's on this computer related to flash player but that has since been resolved with newer graphics drivers. The problem isn't related to overheating, I have a new case that has a ton of airflow and I have the card set to automatic fan control and I can hear the fan getting fairly loud during game play so I know its properly dissipating heat. Let me know if I can provide you with more information to help diagnose my problem.

Thanks for your time.

Edit:
I used windows update for the first time in 2 years and installed 100+ updates. I also checked my Graphics drivers and found there is no new update. I ran FurMark burn in test to see if that could detect anything and it gave me no errors or artifacts. I also included a new DM Log Collector zip that shows all the recent updates. Still getting the BSOD after updating windows.

I have a Lenovo Yoga 710 11IKB 80V6, which has an i5, 8gb of RAM, and an SSD. This is NOT a WIFI issue. For months, this laptop was capable of running youtube videos properly, and running The Binding of Isaac ( a very non-demanding game, one which this laptop meets its requirements). Even simultaneously.. Now, when I go to Youtube, the home page is very slow. When I play a video, it is somewhat choppy, and sometimes stops loading completely. The same happens on Twitch dot com. It is very slow to load.  Oddly enough, if I play The Binding of Isaac, and it starts to get slow - sometimes it will become fast again (for a short time) if I quit the game, and restart it. Even Spotify starts up slowly. All other functions of this computer are fine. The task manager tells me it only runs at 15% CPU and around 40% RAM when I run the programs  listed above, simultaneously. And I have a lot of space left on my SSD. The battery/power settings are at High Performance. AND I frequently scan with my Webroot Anti Virus. I hardly download anything at all on this computer as well. Only word and excel documents for school. I shut off my computer daily as well. My drivers and Windows 10 is up to date.. What is wrong with my computer? Can this be replaced under the 1 year warranty? I loved this computer until this week.

A:Yoga 710 suddenly slow- choppy videos and light games

A little update:This has been an issue all week. But AT THIS VERY MOMENT, Youtube is completely fast and functional.The Binding of Isaac was very slow, but I put it in Windowed Mode, then back to Full Screen, and it become faster like that. It would get slow again, but once I switched levels, it would become fast again. WHYYYYY

It doesn't happen often but sometimes it freezes for a second while loading a certain game which works fine on another day and gives BSOD. Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing. My hardware is more than enough for the games I run and I even run them on low-mid even though I can manage high settings. The games I usually run are CS:GO, League of Legends and Modern Warfare 3 [rarely play; received 1 BSOD while loading it]

I've uploaded my dump files.

First off I am new to all this
I have win xp home, and would like to play old games (such as Full Throttle)

I have tried the win xp compatability mode with no success.

Have downloaded scummvm and dos box but I simply dont understand how to use them.

I looked at vm ware which allows multiple systems such as 95 and 98 but I dont see how that works because of the more powerfull system I have (which I assume would be too powerfull for the old games) ie 1 gig ram 128 vid card athlon 3000+

I tried to buy a win 98 PC but it seems harder than I imagined.

One person was reluctant to sell me a reconditioned xp when I asked him to uninstall xp and put in win 98.

I am rather puzzled I thought it would be simple to play old games but apparently not so

I would appreciate any help to enable me to play these old classics. Such as what system I would need, Or help re VMSCUMM or DOS BOX

Thank You for your advice

Ever since I had windows 10, a game that I often play on windows 7 has stopped working so I am unable to use this game on windows 7.
I can understand Microsoft wanting to get people to move over to windows 10 but it is really unnecessary to stop things working on windows 7 just to get people to give up windows 7. We have paid good money to get windows 7 in the first place and support
doesn't end until 2020.
I even had to reinstall win 7 a couple of times to get it to work but to no avail. The most recent reinstall of windows 7 enabled me to play the game I wanted to play. The last time I was able to play this game was this morning. Then this afternoon I got
round to catching up with all the updates for win 7 - guess what happened, the game stopped working. So it's obvious one of the updates stops the program from working.
I'd appreciate having this update withdrawn and a replacement put in place so we can continue to use win 7. Either that or post some instructions on how we can restore the program to work.
Thank you.

Hello . What I need is a little advice...

I noticed that the computer was running slow so I clicked on my computer and went into performance and saw that only 37% resources were free. I called Dell and they made me go into msconfig and had me UNCHECK many many items so that all the icons that were in the system tray are now gone. No big deaL but we have noticed that some of the games that I downloaded from the web no longer work!. Like a game called Snood. I downloaded it again but to no avail. It says you have to have Direct X version 7 to play the game but upon searching my files I have version 8. Do I download their version and overwrite the newer version with the older one??? Will this screw anything up??? What to do. I can tell you that now when I right click on my computer and look into the performance tab there is now 83% resources FREE. Wow. But what do I do with the games that no longer work. What could be the reason that they no longer work? I even RECHECKED all the boxes that they had me recheck just to see if they would work and they still do not work??? What could have happened. I even did a system restore to the day before the unchecking of the startup items and still they did not work. Once again what do you suggest I do and how do I correct it.? thanks.

that sounds like an obvious graphics card issue, could possibly be defective or theres a driver conflict or some other conflict with your monitor, quickly try re-installing your video drivers. If that doesn't solve anything try contacting the manufacturer.

A:pc for playing old games

If I were you, I would build a basic home system with Windows Pro. You have the advantage of playing older games and a more advanced system. Though it may cost more, you may find Windows 95, 98 even ME, to be way too ancient. Unless you have grown up with those operating systems all of your life I'd understand.

Hi guys,
I'm planning to make an order on simpleshoppinglink.com buy I'm still thinking: I want to buy a powerful machine for playing new big games and decided to ask someone's thoughts about it. So what would you buy for playing games: PC or Laptop?
If you choose PC: i7 4790k or i7 4930k? or another proposes?
If you choose laptop: which one?
 

A:What would you buy for playing games?

An i5 with a good video card. Games are GPU intensive so you'll need a video card to handle the latest games with 8 gigs of memory.

I personally play on a PC. There are those who play on a laptop. It boils down to a personal preference. if you need the mobility you go laptop. However, I can build a PC significantly cheaper.

Hiya

Is this the version that you have of SNOOD:

http://www.snood.org/

It looks like a Demo, so maybe the timer has run out. Did it have a 30 day expire date?

Do you have anything left in the startup? Lets have a look:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware http://tomcoyote.com/lsindex.html

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Installing Direct7 over 8 won't do any good. In fact, not sure if it'll let you.

Also, where did you get HOUSE of THE DEAD from?

Regards

I have an Old Dos Game that I was able to find in bin format and was trying to figure out how to play it on Windows 10. I was trying to figure out DosBox but maybe it's just me but it's too complicated.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

A:Playing Old Dos Games

With DOSBox things are rather basic since I can easily run some old 8bit dos games on the 64bit Windows 10 as well as previously seen on the 64bit Windows 7. With a basic entry to mount the game's program folder on a virtual drive you then simply type the name of the main executable to see it run.

One classic title was the 8bit Duke Nukem where the first entry was "mount c: c:\duke nukem 1" where the custom folder had to be created for the old game since that didn't have any installer. Once mounted I simply typed in "dn1" being the "dn1.exe" file for starting the game up. The game loads right up!

A PC World article on DOSBos makes for a good read along with the Wiki and other sources since this is an easy one to learn how to use. The PC World article can be looked over at: How to Use DOSBox to Play Classic Games | PCWorld
