    D54250WYK - speed of processor limited by system firmware?

    crhendo

      Is anybody getting these messages in their event logs:-

       

      The speed of processor 0 in group 0 is being limited by firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for xxx seconds since the last report.

      The speed of processor 1 in group 0 is being limited by firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for xxx seconds since the last report.

      The speed of processor 2 in group 0 is being limited by firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for xxx seconds since the last report.

      The speed of processor 3 in group 0 is being limited by firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for xxx seconds since the last report.

       

      Where "xxx" varies from 71 to 86399 seconds.

       

      This machine is essentially sitting idle on my desk (waiting for the USB3 fix ...hint hint) so its workload is negligible. I have noticed these since day 1 but because I had so many other things to sort out it was low on my priority list. I can't see any pattern as to how often they occur but it is at least 3 times every 24 hours. A quick Google search talks about turning off Speedstep in the BIOS but that sort of defeats the purpose of having speedstep doesn't it?

       

      Any thoughts?
