Hi I have an acer laptop with this specs
I3-5005U 2ghz
8gb ram dd3rl
Nvidia 920m 2gb
Battery removed

My laptop has been running slow and everyday task seems to take on forever. Games tend to have a fix 10-12fps.

Some laptops go into limp mode when you remove the battery. Try running ThrottleStop. On the main screen, make sure BD PROCHOT is not checked. This is a common throttling method that many different laptop manufacturers use.

If you are still having problems, post some ThrottleStop screenshots. Open up the Limit Reasons window. It can help show you the reasons why your CPU is running so slow.

An i3-5005U was a low end mobile CPU when it was introduced in 2015. Even when running at full speed, the gaming abilities of a 5005U are going to be limited.

Throttlestop fixed it thank you

Also is 40°C okay for idle and 50-55°C for heavy apps normal?
