  1. Hi

    By visiting the Event viewer for my BSOD I noticed that two warnings are appearing in the list whose source is Kernel processor power and it is shown in the list every time that if i have booted my PC.
    Had i not visited event viewer for BSOD purpose I would not have known these warnings!.

    Warning 1:
    The speed of processor 0 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.

    Warning 2:
    The speed of processor 1 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.

    What is this? Does this show any prob with my processor or is it a normal thing to appear.

    Hasnain.

    What type of CPU and which motherboard do you have? It's possible that the CPU is being slowed/throttled due to excessive heat.
