Hello,

Whenever I run my computer plugged into power, it runs perfectly as expected. But as soon as I unplug the computer, its performance dramatically decreases. This is extremely noticeable in games.

I have ensured it is on the "High Performance" mode, and have checked the advanced settings for this mode to ensure that it is the same for both battery and plugged-in.

My graphics card provides no options for its operation in battery mode, so I am now stumped.

I don't have anything running either, my anti-virus is disabled and I am running only system critical processes (apart from the application/game that is running ever so laggy).

My graphics driver is the latest MobileForce driver (since nVidia hasn't released one for my card in Vista...). It works excellently when plugged in.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks.
