But it does not! That is the problem. When I have a CPU intensive (90 to 100% of the CPU usage) program running with the AC on, the frequency is 2194 MHz. As soon as I unplug the AC, it drops to 1196 (although the CPU intensive program is still running) but goes back up to 2194 when I plug the AC back in.
Could this be a locked setting of the BIOS? As a reminder, I have an extremely limited OEM BIOS that does not let me access anything besides the time/date, password, and boot order.
