I did not install some of the apps from Toshiba like Toshiba Book Place, Toshiba App Place, Toshiba Laptop Checkup, Toshiba Disc Creator type of apps. But all the other drivers and other critical apps like Eco Utility are installed.
Such tools like Toshiba Book Place, Toshiba App Place are don’t improve the notebook performance and are not necessary to get the notebook working properly.
These are additional tools from Toshiba providing some additional features….
I would recommend checking the tools like Chip Set Utility, Intel Management Engine Interface, Value Added Package, Rapid Storage Technology Driver
Also be sure that proper graphic card driver has been installed…
At least set the BIOS to default and save the changes.
You should not forget the Win 7 power management settings can slow down the CPU in order to save battery power so be sure that the CPU settings are set to beset performance…
I have the same problem.
I clean installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on SSD disk.
I installed all drivers and utilites from toshiba web site, all power saver settings set to maximum performance, but I still have low CPU perfomance. I think turbo boost not working, Intel torbo boost monitor shows that turbo boost is active, but CPU MAX frequency stay 2.3 GHz.
