Hi,

I'm using a G7 7590 Dell Laptop. It has a (what I can assume is) mobile 2060 GPU that has worked fine for me in the past until recently. Since a few days ago, my GPU will randomly get stuck at 300 MHz and will go no higher. I've tried multipe fixes and nothing I do works for more than maybe a minute.

I've gone into my NVIDIA control panel and changed the Power Management Mode to Prefer Maximum Performance.

I've disabled my Integrated Graphics in device manager.

I've used the Alienware Command Center to turn my fans all the way up *

This is a recent issue and I don't see any way to solve it. Is there something I may be missing?

This is most likely unrelated, but my system/GPU fans never go above 50%, while my CPU fans can. AFAIK, it has always been this way. My laptop has always ran hot but I have never experienced any issues from this before. I am on the latest NVIDIA drivers.
