Bit of a back story, my laptop has encountered the charging issue known to effect the 9550's. As such the laptop only charges incredibly slowly when its been fully shut down or does not register the charger as connected, when it is plugged in while still in use. As a result, since this occurrence, within games im constantly limited to 300mhz core clock on my 960m and around 2.4ghz on my i7 6700hq.

I've done all the checks, high performance mode, changed power settings to max and set mandatory usage of the 960m in games within the Nvidia control panel and still nothing. No matter what i do i cant get it to clock higher than 300mhz - and it says that its at 99% usage.

I'm at a bit of a loss, ive scoured the forums and google and no solution has worked yet - let me know anything you have in mind!
