Dropping frames after minutes in-game.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So the problem i have is that no matter what game i play, it will play perfectly fine for the first few minutes, but then it will drop to 5 FPS, even when the game is minimized. Everything is in slow-mo. I even tried games that i know worked perfectly fine a few months back.

Have tried closing all other programs that might run in the background.


I play on this laptop:

Dell XPS 15 9550

i7-6700HQ 2.60GHZ

16 gb RAM

GTX 960M

What games are you playing and at what fps did they use to run at?


Have you tried using a clean up program like CCleaner to clean all your.... "crap" off your machine?


Might be a fresh start for the laptop, new windows etc might do the job

Apex Legends, CSGO and Ring of Elysium all on lowest settings, They do also run fine on max for a few seconds. Used to get 90 FPS in CSGO.

I did a fresh install of windows a few weeks back. I do have CCleaner..

Im running latest nvidia and Inteldrivers.

At 55 celcius on both GPU and CPU while gaming. I did notice that in my thirdparty program it did say that the CPU was at 100% load, while in taskmanager it only said 30%.

while gaming the CPU would not go over 700MHz clockspeed, when no game is running it stays at 3k MHz
