      Ive recently upgraded my hp pavilion g7-1260us (i3-2330m) to an i7-2670qm. Now I cannot get turbo boost to operate and the clock speed stays at .8-.9GHz. There is no options in the BIOS for it. I have tried to use Intel ETU (will not let me change any options) and Throttlestop(no change). It acts like it's not enabled but I cannot find a way to enable or even see anything that relates to Turbo Boost. Turbo Boost monitor is installed also and stays at energy saver. The temperature also stays in the operating range for it. If anyone has any ideas it would be appreciated. I have run out. Here is my specs if it will help (none is OEM).
