SOASE: R was working fine on my system, until I took it off of my laptop for about a month and then reinstalled it a few days ago.
Since the reinstall, when I play SOASE, my computer no longer ramps up to the higher clock speed, but instead ramps down and remains at a lower clock speed than what my actual processor is clocked at.
So, here are my Laptop stats:
Intel Core i7 720QM 1.60 GHZ (with turbo boost to 2.8 GHZ). Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650. I am also using a wireless mouse, wireless keyboard, and a 24" monitor hooked up to the laptop.
When the games not running, the cpu runs around 2.4-2.8 when I am running applications, but after starting the game, it down shifts to 1.4 GHz. It never did this before hand and its making the game unplayable even on the lowest graphics settings. sometimes it even down shifts to 900 MHz.
As soon as I close out of the game, it ramps back up to 2K+ Ghz
I am using CPUZ to watch the core speed.
It's frustrating because I don't know how to fix this issue. I have tried closing out of various system services as well to see if that would work.
I'm a loss to figure this out and I don't know where to go to read up on how to fix this problem as most of my various google search have not provided me anything of value.
Any help would be great.
