Question

Found how to stop freezings but forgot how to

Hi

I have a computer that keep freezing unless I change some options. Problem is that I cant find the video thaT showed me the solution nor can I find the settings changed. Im not sure but i think it might have something to do with reducing ram speed or something like that. Basically lowering my computer peformances so that it doesnt overheat anymore (like its a bit slower but it doesnt freeze anymore) does anybody know what these settings are ? Thank you for your eventual answees

Ps : I think I had to change some percentages in these settings

Clarification Request
I have never had to do that

Almost every time I came across a freezing problem , it was due to overheating and needed to clean the inside of the case and change the thermal grease on the CPU and the GPU if one is installed.

The settings were to let you get by until it was repaired.

There are some dozen settings I've used over the years to get by till the repair was done so it's a good chance I can't tell you want worked this time. From reducing core counts to turning off CPU cache to limiting CPU use, you must remember this.

Uhhhh... it was something like changing some numbers and then the computer would get slower but stop overheating, I think there was something like cpu or ram speed in the options I just cant remember more than that

Instead of jumping through hoops

Maybe give them a Speccy to move this along Confused

Does this ring a bell?

Control panel>power.
Open the power plan you have selected and scan down to processor power management.

There you can set min and max %.

Not that one, although I tried it (it doesnt work for me )

You can lower the multiplier

on the CPU some. Also reduce the RAM speed a bit too. Basically underclock it in the BIOS.

Too risky

I've heard it's risky for a newbie so I'm not gonna do it. I'll open the computer and clean the dust I can find though (I doubt it will help but we never know).

thanks

I had a doubt about it. I'm just mad that I can't find that video that helped me, I think it got deleted.

Thank you anyway
