Lenovo Y580 Lag

I lag very hard when this laptop runs on battery while gaming. I tried doing things lenovo told me to do such as switch the performance mode to the max setting, change the battery mode to optomized battery health and not battery life. I also tried myself to turn off the intelligient power saver. ALL have failed. Please help.

Re: Lenovo Y580 Lag

I think I may have the solution :


If you have the nvidia panel (right click on desktop), go into it and add your game to the list (in program parameters).

If your game is already in the list so select this, and set your favorite processor for the program to the "nivdia high performance processor" and not the integrated graphics.


So when you play your game (warning: you must do it to every game you play) it will use the nvidia graphic card instead of hd 4000.

Oh and there is an option too when you select nvidia graphic card, you must select in the power setting "always prefer maximum performance" or something like that.

What's DOS?

Re: Lenovo Y580 Lag

It does not help. I've tried changing battery mode to High Performance, didnt work.

Made a profile in nvidia control panel for my game, didnt work. Game still lags A LOT without the charger connected..



LENOVO please take care of this issue, I bought a y580 to be able to game comfortably, not always sit next to a wall with a socket to plug my laptop into.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
