Legion Y740 15" freezing first few minutes into WoW classic

2019-09-12, 0:47 AM

Hi, so hours ago I received the laptop and decided I'd download chrome, discord, steam and blizzard launcher. Eager to test out WoW,  I jumped on and within 5 minutes it froze completely but I could still hear the music. Ctrl+alt+delete was not working, everything froze except sound. Forced shut down, jumped on and tried again..this time i alt-tabbed a second or two in and it froze. Again i tried, and it froze on the log-in screen. After this I downloaded nzxt cam to monitor the temps and everything was good. Next I tried CS:go and had no freezing issues but the fps was very low. Worth noting, i did download all the latest drivers for nvidia. Anybody have any clue what the issue could be, right from the get-go? Currently at a loss D: any help would be greatly appreciated

●  Processor: Intel Core i7-9750H (2.60GHz, up to 4.50GHz with Turbo Boost, 6 Cores, 12MB Cache)

Can you check which GPU is being used in CSGO?

Try going into the nVidia control panel, desktop, and enable "Display GPU activity icon in notification area". Then check wheter CSGO/WoW are using your dGPU.

Thank you for the reply, I actually did a full windows reinstallation last night and somehow it fixed everything. I guess it was botched when I did it initially. Thanks for the advice though, if it starts getting screwy again I’ll definitely keep this in mind.
