Windows 7: Laptop Settings Issue

Laptop Settings Issue

It only works well in high performance mode. For an 17laptop with overall double the specs of my last one, this thing sure does suck. It's even been wiped and redone and still sucks.

In powersaver mode i can only run like one program and barely more then 3 in balanced. why is this?

are i3's better than i7's?

Did you stick closely with these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 using only the drivers which Win7 provides in installer and via optional Updates?

If not I'd do it over.

Otherwise work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7
