Lenovo Legion Y720 - slow while multitasking

Hello,

 

I have a problem with my Legion Y720 notebook, it is very slow while multitasking. For example: if I have a game opened and then I start any browser and try to watch a video on youtube, it get's very laggy, I cannot watch the video.

 

Before upgrading to this notebook, I had a much worse one and with that one I had no problems doing the same operations with the same games and apps.

 

Any ideas how to solve this?

 

Thank you!

update:

 

it seems that somehow the games are slowing down the internet, or are using the whole bandwich. Any idea what might be the problem?

Your CPU and RAM configuration looks solid. Do you use HDD or SSD?

 

Regarding your problem, try to run Internet speed test like speedtest.net and check, if the results which you got match the bandwidth which you pay for. Moreover, it's worth to check if your laptop isn't infected with malware. Malwarebytes could be used to for this task. Also sometimes Windows network configuration got corrupted and you have to reset it. I usually use three commands for this task. You need to run them using administrator privileges in Command Prompt:

 

netsh winsock reset
netsh int ipv4 reset
netsh advfirewall reset

 

Usually these three do the trick, but if you would like to perform full reset, then check this article.

According to the speedtest, everything seems to be ok and I've also tried the command prompt trick but it didn't work.

With no game open

After open game:

It seems that when I open a game, a big part of the bandwidth is allocated to the game, but the game never uses it

What game do you play and what connection speed (downlink/uplink) do you have? Every game have the same issue?

That was a very good question! It seems that this issue only happens while playing football manager 2019, I haven't tried with another games until now. With Fallout 4 alll works perfect, I cand use the browser and still get at least 60 fps in the game.

 

Do you know how can just that game affect the internet? any ideas how to solve it?
