My laptop started to underperform

2020-03-07, 13:30 PM

Hello,

For some reason my laptop started performing much worse then it used to.  I can't think of anything that could have caused this, except that once i forgot my charger and drained my laptops battery - ever since then it has been performing very badly. I've reinstalled windows twice by now, tried doing defragmentation, tried doing sfc /scannow on cmd but nothing helps. I used to be able to run games like League at 100+ fps but i'm barely getting 40 fps now.

Hi,

 

From your description it sounds like your laptop is using it's integrated GPU instead of the dedicated GPU. 

Please refer to the KB below.

As a first step, I'd activate the Nvidia GPU activity icon in the tray. Have a look at point 1b in the KB.
