Recently, I've noticed that my PC is very slow (even youtube videos aren't fluent).
I have acer aspire nitro 5 and my battery is probably dead.
I thought that it's throttling because of high CPU temperatures but it isn't:
I can see that CPU frequency is about 800.000 MHZ which is the lowest possible.
And as you can see the usage is very high (I started Intellij Idea)
I tried to manually set CPU frequency to max:
sudo cpufreq-set -f `cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq`
but it returns error:
Error setting new values. Common errors: - Do you have proper administration rights? (super-user?) - Is the governor you requested available and modprobed? - Trying to set an invalid policy? - Trying to set a specific frequency, but userspace governor is not available, for example because of hardware which cannot be set to a specific frequency or because the userspace governor isn't loaded?
Do you know what should I do?
