Battery life on laptop is bad.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently I installed GeForce experience on my laptop and I ran pubg. Afterwards when sitting in idle the power drop was 20 watts instead of the normal eight knots that I get on idle. I uninstalled GeForce experience and my power draw went down to around 12 Watts. Then I uninstalled pubg but my power draw is still around 10 watts instead of 8 watts. What could be causing this I have nothing running in the background. this has caused my computer to draw a 20 watts when using chrome instead of the 10-watt it used to draw before. It really hampers battery life.
