I recently bought a new gaming laptop (it's 2 months old) it worked perfectly until recently.
This is the laptop: ( https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-TUF-Gaming-FX505GT-i5-9300H/dp/B0811ZSCLQ )
An i5-9300H and a GTX 1650 4 gb, nothing impressive but enough for me.

When I turn it on, it starts up at normal speed with 4 ghz and after i start using it it downlocks to 800 ghz and 30% use max, can't hear the cpu cooler at all, and it's unusable, it lags a lot. Also if I don't do anything at all, it comes back to 2,4 ghz, but as soon as i use an app or something it goes back to 0,8 ghz. The weird thing is if I disconnect it from power ( I leave it on battery) it comes back to normal and sometimes it just works normally, after a few restarts or just on pure luck.
Here is a video of the whole thing happening:

What does that do? Can I disable that through ThrottleStop? It says in the title.

Also I want to specify that after a fresh windows reinstall the problem is still there. :(
Then its problably dptf, just disable it with the tutorial i gave you, and yes my dads laptop used to have the same problem but this time its on a crappy celeron that cant even outpace a core 2 duo xD, it used to throttle at 65c when charging, now itll go to 90c before it thermal throttles

You might wanna check windows power options. The lowest state is 800mhz, and since running on battery solves the issue, I suspect that's the case. Make sure maximum state is not at 0%

There is another thing that can cause this issue:
If you have a Dedicated GPU, then sometimes, the laptop gets "Stuck" and is unable to switch back to iGPU and this causes high power draw, leading to lowering of clocks. Weird bug, not sure what causes it, could be driver, or windows 10. In that case, try running a game or photoshop and see if it gets back to speed again.
