Flex 2 - lag only when plugged in.

2016-12-04, 22:43 PM

Hello i have a lenovo flex 2 and just started playing world of warcraft and the game runs fine when the laptop is not charging but when i put it on charge the games fps drops to about 10 then back up to 40 then back down, any help on this matter would be helpful. Thanks.

Hi there, Sammelli      -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


Your CPU / GPU might be overheating and it's throttling down which may explain the FPS drop during games.

Also, run a few tests from this link -




You should try Storage test, memory test, motherboard test, CPU test. Open Command prompt and try sfc /scannow to check if your windows files are corrupted.


Try to disable Microsoft AC Adapter (control panel-> device Manager-> Batteries->Microsoft AC Adapter) 


Update us how it goes.
