    CPU i7-12700H, RING EDP OTHER RED, DELL G15 5520, motherboard 05J7DY.

    Well, Something that has worked for me is after you have disabled VM and core isolation, and smart app control is to delete the throttlestop INI file and start throttlestop. FIVR registered after that for me at least.

    CPU i7-12700H, RING EDP OTHER RED, DELL G15 5520, motherboard 05J7DY.

    disable smart app control for EDP errors. windows search-smart app control. Only applies in this case if throttlestop is running - under med-heavy workload, and the cpu frequency drops. Dont understand How no1 mentioned this already.

    I'm in desperate need of help with my laptop

    I use Liquidmetal for both cpu and gpu. You can reach thermal limits even with a fresh repaste, but if its the stock solution, you need to get some. I recommend a ONE AND DONE thermal paste. Its more tacky, performs identically as the best around, and i personally use it. its called prolimatech...

    I'm in desperate need of help with my laptop

    If gaming, lower cores 1-6 all to 40x. The use of additional cores(41-45x), during an already taxing workload(gaming), for background apps in the operating system background leads to unecessary stuttering, heat, and power draw. Spikes in frequency from 40x to 45x always stutters my system in...

    [Help!] HDD usage stuck at 100%

    disabling wsearch may help, but isnt a permanent fix. Go ahead and shut off windows search/wsearch in services.msc and disable in startup and in recovery modes as well as stop the service.
