Balanced power mode sets PC to 0.39ghz while on teams call.

Hi,

 

I'm suffering from this issue in which the processor doesn't adjust the clock frequencies according to the load. The normal idling sped of the processor is around 1.2-1.4 Ghz as you can see here

But as soon as I put ANY load, it goes down to 0.39ghz. Including trying to past the screenshot to this forum. The crippling effect is so bad I struggle to be able to take a screenshot of it.

 

I managed to capture it coming back up after it plummeted when I opened Windows explorer.

Teams call are particularly a nightmare because in order to be able to have a call at all without missing half of the conversation I need to put the laptop to 'Best Performance Mode' with all the extra noise and the extra power that it consumes (and I work from home, therefore I'm footing that electricity bill).

 

Laptop s a Lenovo T14 with an 10th Gen i7 as you can see. 

 

I already surfed the web but didn't manage anything to work to fix this.

 

Any advise?

you're still WAY idle, that's why it's clocking down. whatever your problem is, isnt clock speed.

 

also.. the difference between the two power modes is insignificant compared to the power draw of the display, or.. y'know.. heating the room.

have you checked your system temps (if possible as you mention freezing)?
