Hi guys I'm looking for a Bios for my oldish laptop its a HP Pavilion DV6 (3032TX) it has the latest Bios installed version F.29 but I'm looking for the version before F.29 or even before that as its not reaching its full CPU speed of 1.6 GHz I'm guessing its a CPU multiplier problem because its only reaching 1463 MHz within Windows 7 and 10. It was fine before I installed the latest Bios (F.29)
I have run CPUZ and HWMonitor to see the max CPU values while running a stress test on the CPU and it shows that the CPU utilization goes up to 100% but its not reaching its max 1.6GHz or turbo of 2.8GHz in the "Power Options" in control panel the max CPU processor state is 100% and the minimum is 5%. When I look at CPUZ under "clocks (core#0)" the highest core speed is 1463 MHz and for that the multiplier is "x11.0 (7-21)" so the highest multiplier is only going to 11 when it looks like it should be going to 21 so maybe an earlier Bios will fix this problem. The Bios is very simple there are no settings to adjust the CPU voltages, multiplier, clocks etc.
