Intel turbo boost 2.6 not responding

Thanks Theveterans,

Your suggestion helped me a lot, using CPU-Z i realized that my CPU was going up to 798MHZ but i have a i7 2.20GHZ so i checked my config and using Power4Gear noticed that my PC was running like in a save battery mode; i changed that to high performance and now the processor goes up to 2.8GHZ which is what i was looking for.

What a Noob i know !!! But well i'm still sharing in case somebody else have the same issue.....

Nice forum btw !!!!!

Your welcome stone061182. Most Turbo Boost problems in a laptop are always solved by playing around with the Energy or Thermal Management software that is preinstalled. These programs override the Windows 7 power plan so even if someone sets the power plan to high performance, but if the Energy/Thermal software is set to "battery," "quiet mode," or "energy saver," Turbo Boost will never work.
