Just yesterday I was able to change all my turbo ratio limits and voltages and I at one point while I was idling on my desktop I went to go click on the internet browser and the computer froze up for a good 15-20 seconds I didn't think anything of it until I went to throttle stop to change my settings back into a high clock speed and found out I was locked out of everything and none of my changes in Voltage are applying themselves I went to go check the limits and sure enough I'm getting throttling at idle the EDP other is flashing or holding a solid red at the time this happened my throttle stop settings were -174.5 Core and -125 cache I know they're spread apart pretty far but I didn't have any problems for a good 6 months until now my Long power max was at 22 and my Short power max was at 26 and Turbo Time limit at 1 second and I had all my cores at 3.4ghz I didn't change the iGpu voltage it remained stock sometimes when I game I bring the clock speeds down to 2.2 ghz simply because it will maintain a solid 70-75c while I'm gaming and right now when I turn off Speed step and Speed Shift in the Bios it maintains 2.2ghz and the I only get 1 EDP other under the RING and it stays Yellow but as soon as I turn on Speedstep and Speedshift or even just one of them I get the throttling problem and I noticed with the overlay that it doesn't wanna bring itself past 3.0 ghz even if I set the Long power max to 45 and short Power Max to 70 which was the stock setting . When I change my Voltages in Throttle stop I can see in HW Monitor that the settings are not applying themselves but just Yesterday everything was fine I had no issues and now I can't change any Turbo Ratio limits and even Intel XTU won't let me change anything but the Long and short Power Max kind of Harsh if u ask me . Does anyone know why this happened or what I did wrong is the CPU protecting itself from something I did wrong or pressed by accident without realizing? Also my Laptop is a Alienware M17x with an i7 8750h and RTX 2060 , I did take it apart this morning and do a CMOS reset and replace the thermal paste while I was at it but I can't figure out why I'm locked out of all these settings and getting all this throttling even at idle , I even tried making a new admin user and trying throttle stop from there , Reinstalled chipset Drivers , and even Flashed the BIOS nothing worked . Can somebody please help me figure out the Problem? Also it can barely maintain a 26 Multiplier running Cinebench bringing my score from 2600 +/- to the 1700s , Everytime I change the voltage and go back to the voltage options it's goes back to grey as if I didn't change anything , Changing the SpeedShift to a higher setting like 130+ will bring the EDP Other to a solid Yellow and when I set it really high to like 180+ I get the one EDP other under RING and it stays solid Yellow there seems to be a direct correlation with the Clock Speed, Anyone run into this before or have an idea of what's happening? Any Help would be appreciated Please and Thank You.
