Intel i7 q720 HP Pavillion DV7 notebook

I have a HP Pavilion DV7 with a i7 Q720 (1.6 to 2.8 with turbo boost) 8G RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650


I've had problems with this from day 1 and have had the hard drive changed.

Since before the hard drive change I have noticed that it is not as fast as I had hoped and feel there is something wrong.. I have seen on the web that there are some problems with the turbo boost so have investigated further.

I had task manager up and the windows 7 CPU meter, and installed the intel boost monitor.

Upon starting MW2 its fine, but after 20 seconds it slows, almost to freezing point

I have started the game again and minimised it and found the monitors go up apart from the Intel monitor which just stays in Energy saving mode and the CPU counter on task manager goes up to 70-80%..

This maybe a simple problem to fix but I cannot find much help.

Thanks for the help in advance
