G750 Processor stuck at .77Ghz when unplugged [solved w/new bios]

Musicmatters

Experienced an unscheduled and unexpected shutdown today, after which Windows did yet another update Ever since then, the CPU has been stuck at .77GHz.

I've rebooted, shutdown, pulled the battery, and changed the power option to both high performance and the ASUS power gear settings to no avail.

Anyone know a solution to this problem?

TIA,

Craig

EDIT by cl-Albert: 1. Since the G750JW 208 bios was released first to solve this, there is also an alternate thread New 208 JX and 205 JH BIOS on support.asus.com for the G750JX and G750JH if anybody is interested.

2. Also, after you update the bios, if you have Power4Gear installed, don't forget to change the Power4Gear setting as mentioned by hmscott in this thread CPU still at .80 [solved]

3. Although it doesn't make a lot of sense, 1 member reported " the stress from folding did the trick" if anybody needs to try this: Funny thing happened with my core being stuck at .77 GhZ on battery

Well I have to correct myself. The BIOS version are targeted for specific model. The BIOS 208 is available only for G750JW and it is not applicable on other models. For the rest of us the issue is still not resolved.

DO NOT INSTALL BIOS FROM DIFFERENT VERSIONS. You can brick your computer. But Keep an eye... your BIOS update should be appearing soon.

It's safe if you do it right.
