Question MSI afterburner randomly setting power limit to ~55% on my 2070S

It was the windows update before last that caused this.

As the title says, MSI afterburner keeps resetting my power limit, even when locked.

I noticed this a few days ago when some games were crashing due to insufficient memory, checked afterburner, and set the limit to 100. Kept resetting.
I then hopped onto discord and my friend said he could barley hear me. Checked my microphone output on windows; It was set to the same volume limit as my GPU was limited in power. Few days later I decided to check my PC power setting and discovered it was set to about 60% as well.

Anyways, I reset my PC power to 100% and thought everything would be fine. It isn't. afterburner still is resetting my power limit.

Any help would be great.

p.s. There have been no noticable dips in performance.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Something tells me your OS might be corrupt if your volume and the GPU's power slider might be tethered. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling MSI Afterburner with a latter revision?

Yeah I have tried. If it is my OS, I haven't noticed anything strange other than what I mentioned. I've had OS corruptions before but never anything like this.
