    And it's started to do the battery thing again on GPU test 2 and does the same on Test 4 of firestrike.

    Test 4 drops down to 4fps before bouncing back to 20 then back to 4fps again turning it into a slide show. just reset the IS and uninstall the Windows drivers for battery and AC just incase.

    HWInfo reports the GPU drawing 19.42v and battery wear is 0.9%

    Going to run a logging session I think.

    @NeXt3R Need your help Bud, Right i have included my HWinfo logs of running FireStrike on both the GTX 1060 and the GTX 970m (which i have currently in).
    The issue is not happening on the GTX 970m however after putting that in Windows BSOD'd so booted into safe mode removed the driver and it BSOD'd once then has been booting normal again thus far.

    WhoCrashed shows
    Code:
    On Mon 15/03/2021 20:26:31 your computer crashed or a problem was reported
    crash dump file: C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports\PoW32kWatchdog-20210315-2026.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrnlmp.exe (nt!IoUnregisterShutdownNotification+0xF84)
    Bugcheck code: 0x1A1 (0xFFFF818866B06080, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0)
    Error: CUSTOM_ERROR
    
    Just done a run with GTX 970M with D/C's normal Turbo clocks for the GTX970m 100+ on the core with 200+ on vram and the issue came back however this time the CPU clocked down to 800mhz WTF!

    Right so the plot thickens, so with it still having the issue I swapped out the GPU aka gone back to the GTX 970m however the issue is still present but it's so much worse now not only is it going from AC to battery the CPU is completely throttling down to 800mhz.

    I have done a clean install of Windows, reset and reflashed the BIOS and EC firmware and the issue is still present. It's now looking like the mainboard. Will wait till Thursday to rule out the 330w PSU (LED stays sold.

    I have also checked the PSU with a digimeter and shows 12v before going to nothing on both PSU's as there is no draw on the other end.

    I am now at my wit's end I can't even afford a new laptop and can't for a very long time. Not only that as I can't socialise in person due to the human malware and my personal issues it's going to really take a toll on me.

    So please can some one help me please.

    this is exactly the problem why i thought you didn't have a bad ac adapter
    ,..these random limits are often EC

    when use IGPU + cpu -- works normal ?
    "GPU switch when is possible"

    i check logs

    take a look event viewer - kernel power FW limited CPU or similar

    try discharge NB on battery - around 70./. "not fully"
    30s power button for reset "need defaults configuration" "now using still under volt ,.,..,and 100 /200 ac/dc - you think ,.,.loadline on VR domain" ??
    ,.after reset \ add AC "recharge nb fully" ,..,,not in full stress

    on battery - d-gpu not works "get fake signal ,..,temperatures limit + vram lock"

    ,.,.,.in HWINFO - must disable EC tab "cpu/system fans speed" in sensor ,..,,when exist !
    ,.,reading EC -- some randoms problems

    and best is MSI kombustor - here is possitible scale power -static
    kombustor // cpu burner
    last version not works .,,.4.1.7 is best



    /////////////
    in device manager ,.,. any missing drivers ?? "ACPI devices ,.,.this must be OK"
    or get similar problems

    SMbus ,.,.ene ,.,,,,steel ,watchdog,..,best install all drivers for working power management

    ,.,.
    what do you use for VR pads // thermal paste or LM ??

    Thanks for you help @NeXt3R, Everything is running correctly again.

    Can't believe the fact it was Intel XTU that caused the issue due to my Intel ME being disabled.

    Everything on the GTX970m has been solid since now testing the GTX1060.

    Update: just charging the battery right now but tested the GTX1060 and it performed like it did stock. Now it just wait for the battery and then redo my fine tuned. Thanks for your help and information given (tips).

    if it was just this,.,. it's good for you :)

    xtu compatibility vs disabled ME ??? "I mean mainly watchdog function need ME"
    or only bad configuration "from xtu have -0.90mV undervolt LOG" but last config is only "-0.51mV" -51 -TS

    for my configuration - bad drivers for ME or most version FW "is difference in FSB and OC" + for last ME fw ,.,I think it will never be used again "XTU infernece -enabled"
    or currently it is impossible to use this vs last ME FW // all tested versions of XTU ""plundervolt fix or similar ?"


    ,.,.good is control most time POST VS bios setup .,,ideally create OC only from BIOS "or undervolt" ,.only this use correct numbers vs correct domains
    undervolt -- ADVANCED/OVERCLOCK/PROCESSOR/
    OFFSET
    OFFSET TYPE - NEGATIVE

    or LL -on VR DOMAIN works similar "80 AC /DC" is like -100mV

    this zone ,.,.,.when use more apps for EMULATION for OC ,.,.and recommended DISABLE - EC tab in hwinfo ,..,it's also problematic at least for me "random full fan speed or not keyboard ,.,.or random sleep ,.,,similar is RWEverything + EC ,.,,..random problem :D

    POST VS bios setup
    Bez názvu.png

    ,.,.send bios name ,.,.when works for you NB IMON bypass .,,.get all time 3.5GHZ ;)
    edit
    E1782IMS.10C --contains all for OC :D
