Goddamit Laptop

Anyhow, topic is from my frustration. So recently for reasons disclosed I ended up with a not so good "gaming" laptop, not even mine. And all I can say is that it barely runs any game at all. Mostly the FPS which disturbs me getting around 15-20 FPS in the lowest demanding game. 

 

Anyone have any idea on how to increase performance on this piece of crap.

Specs:

Windows 8.1 

i7 4700HQ 2.4 GHz Idles at 38C

16gb ram 1600 MHz 

GTX 765m 2048mb Also idles at 42C. 

 

Anything else needed. Tell me. 

Any type of help regarding increasing performance since i am pretty sure these specs must offer more. 

 

Also. I did try modifying settings in GEForce experience and control panel but nothing.

That laptop is actually pretty good, what games are you trying to run for example.

Well. I tried Next Car Game, Star Trek Online, Rust, and then Arma 3 which was a total disaster for the cpu and the fps was at like 6

Thats odd considering that the 765m is a decent mobile card. Are you sure its not running off the iGPU?

In ARMA turning the setting up will decrease the load on the CPU and move the rendering to the GPU, try turning some setting up higher.

Otherwise your laptop might be limiting the hardware if you power-cord is disconnected.

If it isn't working absolutely perfectly, according to all your assumptions, it is broken.

most of those games are really not very well optimized. so that is probably your main problem.

Hi Sir,I think I can help you out

 

Reasons Why Your PC is Very Slow :

1) There are Fragments That Need To Be Defragged in The Reistry and the HDD.
2) HDD are slow and will Become slower if there are Fragments.
3) Windows needs Heavy Optimization and It Has Some Problems.
4) Your PC has Unwanted Softwares and Which Uses Massive Amounts of Memory.
5) Your PC may Not Be Clean and May have Dust In it.
6) Your PC's Drivers may Be Old Which Results in Huge Performance Loss.
7) Dust is a Major Problem for Performance Drops and It Can Destroy Your PC

Fix 1 :

1) Download ASC 7.4 Pro and Driver Booster 1.4 Pro.
2) Open ASC 7.4 Installer and Install It and Make it into PRO.
3) Open Driver Booster and Install It and Make it PRO.
4) Run Deep Clean In ASC 7 PRO and while Scanning Uncheck 'Repair Automatically' 
5) In ASC 7 PRO,Select Go To ToolBox,Open Startup Manager and Uncheck All The Startup Items.
6) Activate Turbo Boost in ASC 7 PRO
7) Open Driver Booster and Scan,Download and Install the Outdated Drivers (It will download and Install Drivers Automatically)

 

It must have fixed every problem,Crash and Slow FPS

 

It will definitly improve your FPS,Sir.

 

Thank you

i5 2500K - Kicking the butt of AMD,But I like AMD more than Intel !!  :lol:

Most laptops throttle the cpu when off charge, be it a design choice to save battery, or because the cpu simply is getting too hot. This is really common in  "gaming" and other laptops. You are using the laptop when on charge right?

 

On a lot of gaming laptops with default energy saving settings, if even, you can be getting 60fps in a game, but when you take the power plug off, it will throttle the system, and you'll see 20 fps for example.

 

I'm not sure if in all cases simply editing the windows energy saving settings will fix this issue.

Yep. I do keep it plugged in while gaming, and I have checked the battery settings and nVidia control panel and set everything to performance over battery life.

Well. That worked for some reason...

 

Anyone have any clue on how to increase my fans because they never seem to go over 2000rpm and i believe that's the reason my CPU and GPU are overheated.

I think you might be able to do something with speedfan, it is free and allows you to set fan-curves and the like. But even with that I think your fans are already going as fast as they can. I am pretty sure that the laptop will utilize the fans to the maximum potential under load anyway, you will most likely not be able to increase their speed. Use speedfan at your own risk.

 

Additionally the reason why the ARMA thing worked is because some of the lower settings are meant for players without a dedicated GPU, thus the settings rely on the CPU instead. Instead of just lowering the load on the entire system, the lower settings also move the load to another component while lowering the load.

I would use speedfan, but unfortunately I have no idea what I am doing, so I'd rather not,
