Y50-70 Low FPS/Stuttering

Hello, for the past 3 or so years I have had my Lenovo Y50-70 4k UHD gaming laptop. When I first got it, games ran just fine and the specific game I play (CSGO) had consistently high fps with pretty  high settings. I don't know what changed in between then and now but even on low settings 1080p my fps constantly bounces from under 30 to 70 FPS but is making the game unplayable
The laptop specs:
-Graphics adapter Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M - 4096 MB, Core: 1097-1176 MHz
-Intel-i7 4720HQ @ 2.6GHZ, 4 cores
-16GB Ram
-Currently running windows 10.0.17134 
Temps while playing are 50 on GPU and 62 max on cpu so no thermal throttling

Something else to note before when it was good gaming experience, the top left keys got hot and the fans got more audibly loud. I do not experience that unless using a benchmarking software, but not in game.


Solutions I have tried:
-I don't play with other apps in the background
-All drivers are up to date including GeForce
-Battery is favoring performance
-Game DVR is disabled
-Steam shadow caching is disabled
-fps_max 0/999/etc & other launch options
-Selected my GTX 960m in NVidia control panel
-Overclocking with MSI afterburner
-ParkControl application
-Verifying integrity of game files
-Cleaning registry

-Throttlestop

-Overclocking to 3GHz


I really just want to get back to playing games how they're supposed to be played, any help is highly appreciated, thanks in advance

I already did that, the solution for me was:

 

Boot into bios by turning off laptop completely and while powered off press the lenovo button right next to the power

Then inside bios I disabled NVIDIA GPS. Back to normal performance
