    Intel i7 4910 mq processor


      i have lenovo w540 thinkpad, i7 4910 mq cpu, 16 gb ram and 256 ssd , running on win 7 pro x64 bit.

      i have noticed in the windows event viewer that every time i start up the system i receive the following error :

      EVENT ID 37

      The speed of processor 6 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 22 seconds since the last report.


      further , the machine in only 1 1/2 months old.

      i have checked the following things:

      the power option is set to high performance.

      the system is not overheating

      i have run the lenovo diagnostic test - all are good.

      intel turbo boost is enabled.

      kindly assist
