Y520 15IKBM Getting low fps

2020-04-24, 14:58 PM

My Y520 15IKBM started slowing down about 4 months ago a few days after I got a new monitor and keyboard. I used to get 500 - 800 fps, but now it slowed down to 100 - 200 fps. The Y520 also slows down when not plugged in, but before the FPS dropping, it used to be fine. Anybody know what's happening? There were no driver updates or computer updates around the time when it slowed down. Thanks in advance.

Okay, so, 

 Monitor and keyboard for external use.

Logitech G213 Prodigy and LG 27Gl850 for keyboard and monitor.

I never used a monitor before for my laptop.

When using the monitor and keyboard, I game with the lid closed.

The power setting is set to balanced.

My driver is the GeForce Gtx 1060 with Max-Q Design.

Nothing is using over 40% of ram or memory. 

Minecraft gets the FPS drops. Even though I use Optifine (FPS boost mod) it still gets some FPS drops.
