So I shut down my M14x after a while of gaming to let it cool down and when I started it up again everything was slow and sluggish. After I managed to get task manager running and some other monitoring software up I noticed that the resource monitory said that four of the CPUs (threads) where 'parked.' I'm assuming that means deactivated because it showed no activity on those threads. And furthermore I noticed that the CPUs that where still running where stuck at 800MHz. At this point it occurred to me that it could have started in Safe Mode for some reason so I restarted. At this point everything seems to be running fine again except that the resource monitory still says that four of the threads are 'parked.' But the remaining ones are no longer locked and are free to be controlled by Turbo Boost. Currently I'm using AlienAutopsy to do a full hardware and software scan and see if anything is wrong. If any of you have any idea what's wrong or what I can do to fix it (short of a restore) it would be much appreciated.
