I have a Asus ROG GA502DU laptop with AMD Ryzen 3750H, 2x8 GB, GTX 1660Ti MaxQ, 256gb nvme boot drive plus 500gb nvme for games.
Lately it has been acting strange. Often very slow in Windows and it stutters when playing Youtube videos.
I used CPU-Z to check the cpu speeds and it says that the CPU was running at 400Mhz which is way slow.
I also tried Handbrake and it was much slower than it used to be and I couldn't hear the fans spinning at all which is strange.

Then I ran a few games like Borderlands 3 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey and they both ran fine with close to 60fps on High and Very High.
and the fans were spinning and making noises as usual.

I've updated the BIOS and it didn't help.

Since I have the games installed on a separate nvme drive I wonder if it is problem with my boot drive.

Or is it because I have removed Asus Armoury Crate software? but the laptop was running fine for awhile after i removed Armory Crate.
