Cpu utilization low

Cpu utilization low DEFAULT

CPU utilization won't go above 30%

I had exactly the same problem at a client today with a Windows 10, Dell Celeron Laptop.

The machine took almost 30 minutes to open Outlook and was terribly slow in general.

The CPU ran at 30% maximum utilization, at 0.48Ghz PERMANENTLY, every day.

I noticed at the right bottom of the screen that although the laptop was plugged into power, the battery icon said "not charging" and battery level was 1%.

To resolve it, I did the following (perhaps this could work for you too):

  1. Double-click the battery icon (not right-click) at the right-bottom of the screen (in the tray)
  2. Click "Battery Settings"
  3. Untick the option for: "Turn battery saver on automatically if my battery falls below..."
  4. Disable the setting: "Battery saver status until next recharge"
  5. Unplug the charging cable and re-plug it into the charging port of the laptop.

The battery icon at the right bottom of the screen should now change to "Charging".

After this the CPU started running at 100%, 2.48Ghz and the machine worked well again.

For good measure, click on the battery icon again and set the power mode to "Best Performance"

Note: I noticed that all the battery settings for "Pressing the Power Button", "Pressing the Sleep button" and "Closing the lid" were set to SLEEP. So I guess that every day when the client went home, he closed the lid and put it in his laptop bag. This totally drained the battery, and because the setting was enabled to use Battery Saving when power dips below 20%, every morning the laptop would be SUPER slow.

Whether the Battery Saver setting disabled the battery from charging I can't say for sure.

To avoid the problem for this client, I changed most settings to "Shutdown" and some to "Hibernate"

FIX: CPU Not Running at Full Speed in Windows 10.

A few days ago, I upgraded one more laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. After the OS upgrade, I proceeded – as I always do – to test the laptop's performance using the AIDA64 stressing tool.But, when I ran the AIDA64 CPU stress test tool, I found that the CPU was not running at full speed in Windows 10, while in Windows 7 it was working at maximum speed.

CPU Not Running at Full Speed in Windows 10

In this tutorial you 'll find detailed instructions to resolve the CPU low speed issue in Windows 10 OS.

How to fix: Windows 10 Not Running at Full CPU Speed.

Important: Before you continue to the methods below, first install all available Windows updates and then check if the problem persists.

Method 1. Set the CPU Performance to Maximum.
Method 2. Perform a Clean Boot.
Method 3. Update or Disable the Intel Power Management Driver.
Method 4. Disable the 'intelppm" service from Registry.
Method 5. Increase CPU performance using ThrottleStop.

Method 1. Set the CPU Power Options to Maximum.

The first method to resolve the low CPU speed in Windows 10, is to set the processor performance state to maximum. To do that:

1. At the search box type control panel and press Enter.

control panel

2. Change the View By (at the up right) to Small icons and then click Power Options.

control panel options

3. Click Change Plan Settings.

change power settings

4. Click Change Advanced power settings.

change advanced power settings

5. At 'Processor power management' options, set in Maximum processor state to 100% and click OK.

maximum processor state

6. Then expand the System cooling policy settings and make sure that is set to Active, in order to avoid overheating.

system cooling policy

7. Now check your CPU Speed, and if the problem persists continue to next method.

Method 2. Perform a Clean Boot.

The next method to troubleshoot CPU performance problems, is to start Windows 10 in a Clean Boot State. To do that:

1. Simultaneously press the Windows image + R  keys to open the ‘Run‘ command box.
2. In run command box, type msconfig press Enter to open the System Configuration utility.


3. At Services tab, check the Hide all Microsoft services checkbox.


4. Then press the Disable all button, to disable all non Windows services that start with Windows. *

* Note: If you own a Samsung laptop then just disable the 'Easy Launcher' service and skip the rest steps.


5. Then select the Startup tab and click Open Task Manager.


6. Select one by one all startup items and click Disable.
7. Finally click OK and restart your computer.
8. Check if the CPU is working at full speed now. If the speed is normal, then open the System Configuration (msconfig) utility again and enable one by one the disabled services and programs and restart your system, until you find out which one cause the CPU to work with low speed.

Method 3. Update or Disable the Intel Power Management Driver.

The Intel Power Management, manages the power consumption on Intel processor based computers, but sometimes prevents the CPU to run at full speed when needed. To fix this issue:

1. Download and install the latest 'Intel Power Management' * driver, from your laptop's manufacturer support site.

* Note: If you own an AMD based laptop, then skip this step.

2. After installation, test the CPU performance again. If the problem persists, then proceed and disable the Intel Power Management driver, by following the instructions below:

1. Hold down the SHIFT key and go to Power image and click Restart.

shift restart

2. After restart, go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Command Prompt.


3. Type the following command to navigate to "C:\Windows\System32\drivers" folder and press Enter:

4. Then give the following command and press Enter:

      • ren intelppm.sys intelppm.sys.bak


5. Type exit to close command prompt and then restart your computer (Exit and Continue to Windows 10).

Method 4. Disable the 'intelppm" service from Registry.

The next method, to fix the "CPU Not Running at Full Speed in Windows 10" issue, is to prevent the "intelppm" service to start, using registry. To do that:

1. Simultaneously press the Windows image + R  keys to open the ‘Run‘ command box.
2. In run command box, type regedit press Enter to open the Registry Editor.

Enable Access to 16-bit Applications

3. At the left pane, navigate to the following registry key:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\intelppm

4. At the right pane: *

a. Double click at 'Start' key.
c. Modify the value data to '4'
c. Click OK.

* Note: The above setting, will cause the CPU to work at full speed at all times. If you need the CPU to work at full speed only when needed, change the value data to '1'


5. Close registry editor and restart your computer.

Method 5. FIX Slow CPU Performance with ThrottleStop.

The final method to solve the "Slow CPU performance" issue, is to use the ThrottleStop utility, which is designed to correct the three main types of CPU throttling that are being used on many laptop computers. *

* Important:
1. Keep in mind, that many laptop manufacturers slow down the performance of the laptop if the power supply is not sufficient to fully power your laptop. So, I suggest to check if the "slow CPU speed" issue persists with a new power supply, before using ThrottleStop.
2.Use of ThrottleStop to bypass these throttling schemes is at your own risk and can result in permanent damage to your power adapter or computer or both which may not be covered by your warranty.

To bypass throttling issues with ThrottleStop:

1. Download ThrottleStop utility and then extract the downloaded .zip file to a folder.
2. From the extracted folder, double-click to open the "ThrottleStop.exe" application.
3. At ThrottleStop utility, uncheck the BD PROCHOT checkbox an click Save.

FIX Slow CPU Performance with ThrottleStop

4. Now check your CPU performance. Normally the slow CPU speed problem should be solved. *

* Note: If the problem is solved, follow the instructions below, in order to run automatically ThrottleStop at every startup, by using a scheduled task.

To Start ThrottleStop at Windows Startup:

1. Open Task Scheduler.
2. From the 'Actions' menus choose Create Task.

Create Task

3. At General tab, type ta name for the new task and select the Run with highest privileges checkbox.

Run ThrottleStop at Startup

4. At the Triggers tab, click New and at the 'New Trigger' window, select Begin the task: At log on and click OK.

Run ThrottleStop at Logon

5. At the Actions tab click New, and at the 'New Action' window, select :

a. At 'Action', select: Start a program.
b. Click Browse, navigate to ThrottleStop folder,select the 'ThrottleStop.exe'  and click Open.
c. When done, click OK.

Start ThrottleStop at Windows Logon

6. At the Settings tab, check only the Allow task to be run on demand box and clear all other checkboxes. When done, click OK to save your settings.

Start ThrottleStop at  Startup

7. Restart your PC.

Your GPU is running really hot, It shouldn't go past 70. Most stress tests pust a 1050Ti to 68 max. You said it's running at 80C.... This also explains the bad frame drops.

Here's what's happening:

When your card is cold or at optimal temperature, your graphics card speed (clock speed) is pushed to the maximum to give you the best performance. Once the GPU is under load (playing games) and reaches a certain high temperature, the GPU speed is decreased automatically in steps, to allow your card to cool down resulting in bad fps during this period. Once your card cools down, the speed is pushed to the maximum again, and this process is repeated. This is managed by NVidia's GPU Boost Technology.

Since your GPU cooling is over heating, you get occasional bad performance. Once you turn the PC on after leaving it to cool down, you will get good performance again until it heats up again.

If your card is under warranty (Usually 3 years so it should be) I suggest you get it replaced and don't tamper with it. If for some reason, it's not under warranty, replace the thermal paste on the card (this will void your warranty). It could also be your PSU as it directly affect your rig's cooling. But your processor doesn't seem to be running too hot so it must be the GPU.

Hope this helped :)

No, but you are probably CPU limited. Just because an application isn't using 100% CPU doesn't mean that the CPU isn't the bottleneck, particular with CPUs today with a lot of cores.

With that said, that sounds pretty normal to me.

Low cpu utilization

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is at the core of any computing device and is responsible for fulfilling any instructions you give it. When those resources are strained, apps may lag or shut down, the cursor may move slowly, or the computer may begin to heat up. 

Fortunately, there are quick ways to identify if your CPU is overworked and lower CPU usage on Windows 10.

How to Check CPU Usage on Windows 10

Before we get into tips on how to lower your CPU usage, it’s a good idea to see what programs or processes are causing the high CPU usage. This way you don’t have to waste time trying solutions that aren’t relevant to your problem. 

Follow the steps below to check CPU usage:

  1. Open the Windows Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Delete) and click on Task Manager or by pressing and holding Ctrl + Shift + ESC on your keyboard. 
  1. Identify the Processes and Performance tabs, which give you a closer look at what may be contributing to the high CPU usage. Select the top of the column to sort by CPU usage. 

  1. Identify the Services and System Processes such as wsappx, dwm.exe, ntoskrnl.exe or csrss.exe that are hogging your computer’s RAM and power. 
  2. To try and immediately resolve the issue, you can try to end the process by right-clicking on it and choosing End Task

You should only end the task if you see the CPU usage over 50% for more than 10 minutes. Sometimes Windows performs scans or updates in the background that will cause high CPU usage for a short period of time. 

Also, ending the task is just a short term solution and doesn’t actually solve the problem. Read the fixes below for tips on permanently solving this issue. 

How to Lower CPU Usage on Windows 10

Use the solutions below to diagnose, troubleshoot and lower CPU usage on Windows 10.

Quick Fixes

Try the following quick fixes to lower CPU usage on your Windows 10 PC. 

  • Save your work and restart your computer to clear out temporary files and possibly resolve slowdown in long-running processes.
  • Close any background processes that may be running by unchecking them under the Startup tab in Task Manager. Sort by Startup impact to see which programs are the most resource intensive. Restart your computer to prevent them from restarting automatically.
  • Update your drivers to eliminate any bugs or compatibility issues. Select Start > Settings > Updates & Security > Check for Updates to update critical drivers.
  • Check out our guide on BIOS version if unsure of the version being used on your PC and update your BIOS, which may fix the CPU usage issue.
  • Boot into Safe Mode and check if the high CPU usage still occurs. If not, then the high CPU usage may be caused by third-party software. You can follow our guide to perform a clean boot, which will help you identify the exact program or process causing the high CPU usage.
  • If Cortana is one of the programs causing high CPU usage, disable Cortana and check if it helps.
  • Add more RAM to your computer to take some of the stress off of your processor.
  • Check your power supply. If the supply is faulty, it can start undervolting your CPU to preserve power. Consequently, the CPU fails to function at full capacity.

Check Your Power Options

Some power settings may throttle your computer’s CPU speed and affect your machine’s performance. It’s worth trying out both Balanced and High Performance power plans to see which one reduces high CPU usage. Below, we show you how to enable High Performance mode, but if you’re already using that, switch to Balanced. 

  1. Type Edit Power Plan in the search box and select Open.
  1. Select Power Options in the address bar.
  1. Select Create a power plan
  1. Enable a non-power saving plan.
  1. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to open Task Manager and check if your CPU usage is back to normal. 

Disable Superfetch

Superfetch (Sysmain) is a resource-intensive feature in Windows 10 that increases the system’s performance by preloading your frequently used apps into RAM before you launch them. You can disable it by following the steps below to see if that reduces the CPU usage.

If you don’t see any drop in CPU usage after disabling the service, go ahead and re-enable it as we don’t recommend keeping it disabled.

  1. Right-click Start > Run
  2. Type services.msc in the Run dialog box and then press Enter.
  1. Scroll down to Sysmain in the Services window, right-click on it and select Properties
  1. Select the drop-down menu next to Startup type and then select Disabled
  1. Select Apply, restart your PC and check if this lowers the CPU usage.
