CPU Stuck at 800MHz

I just bought an HP Pavilion Power off with an i5 7300HQ and a GTX 1050 off a guy on Craigslist. Before I bought it I made sure all clock speeds and everything were working correctly. When I got home, I wiped the drive and installed the drivers off of HP's website. I installed CSGO and tried to play it, but I was only getting 10 FPS in game. I opened task manager to see if Windows Update or something was using all the CPU, and I noticed it said the CPU was running at .79 GHz, whether or not a game was running. I did some preliminary Googling and it said that a sensor had probably gone bad near the CPU and that it thought it needed to thermal throttle. I installed ThrottleStop in order to stop that, and it did work, but today I got a new SSD for this machine and did a fresh install of Windows, and I looked in task manager, and it was back to running at 3.3 GHz with the turbo, but after I installed the drivers from HP's site, it was back to .79 GHz.
If that sensor really did go bad, installing drivers shouldn't affect whether or not the machine throttles, at least I don't think.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how this could happen? I guess I could reinstall Windows, but I don't really want to have to set this machine up again.
Any help is appreciated. I am kind of new to forums, so if I did this all wrong, don't be afraid to curse me out in the thread.

How would I go about uninstalling the drivers I got on HP's site and go back to Windows Update drivers?

Reinstalling the OS again? That's more convenient imo
