Event Viewer has been reporting limited processor speed due to inferior firmware on all processors.

Running Win7-Ult and CPUs are 4x Intel i5 2.4's, got the laptop from Cyberpower PC; think it was manufactured by Asus.

Have to run, let me know what other information would be required.

Weak response trends on the boards here, but this forum was good to me in the past.

Thanks all. You're fantastic human beings.

"Make sure you have installed all latest drivers and firmware, especially for your motherboard and CPU."

Am a fairly competent and intelligent person, knew that this had to be done, but am no longer savvy enough to know where to look for these components or which ones are the most relevant. School took over the time I used to use to keep current with the tech world about 5 years ago. I know enough to change BIOS and power settings, install firm, soft, and hardware on my own.

Power settings have been maxed out, were maxed before. Check.

The best way to assist would be to list which firmware components would be relevant to update, and then where to update them.

I understand that the Where likely depends on specifics of the components themselves. For example, which system utility can tell me the maker and model of my motherboard? Are there any special things that you could tell me about searching for such things that might not be obvious to others?

Thankyou for responding.

...which system utility can tell me the maker and model of my motherboard?

Start | Run, type: msinfo32 and click OK. If you can't see "Run" on the start menu, hit Windows logo key + R.

Did you click the "Details" tab shown in your screenshot? There might be a clue in there.
