    HP Laptops Processor slowdowns

    Hi All

    Over the summer I installed the lasts bios firmware to a number of HP laptops. Since then staff have complained of the system slowing down to a crawl. To the point of hitting a key takes a few seconds for the letter to appear.

    In the event logs a Kernel-processor power warning event 37 shows up

    The speed of processor 1 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.

    I've changed a number of the advanced power options, which has improved the problem, but staff still report the computers are slower than they were before the bios upgrade.

    Has anyone had similar issues????????
    The Machines are HP probook 6470b and 6360b. Windows 7 x64. Hp Bios Version F42

    Thanks in advance
    Jaimie

    There is a later version of the BIOS F43. One of the fixes seems to indicate it a power issue. It might be worth updating it again.
