sorry for late reply, I was a little busy these days. I have installed new versions of drivers as you recommended but laptop still hangs a lot. Windows experience rating on my computer is 2.7 but with windows 7 it was 4 point something. Should i switch back to w7 i don't want to do that. But also with W7 it hangs a lot especially while playing fifa and call of duty. I am also thinking of switch over to parrot linux would it solve the problem?

Let try clean boot to see that will resolve the issue.


How to perform a Clean Boot.

Warning: Disabling items in Services or Startup may leave your anitivius disabled until the process is ended. For this reason I would suggest that you perform this process off line.

Press the Windows keywindowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the R key to open Run, then type msconfig in the search box. This will open System Configuration.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, you should enter the password or provide confirmation.

(1) Click/tap on the General tab.

(2) Click/tap on the Selective startup option.

(3) Remove the check mark in the Load startup items check box.

msconfig_zpsuoxvomjq.png

4. Click on the Services tab.

5. Place a check mark in the Hide all Microsoft services check box, this will remove the Microsoft Services from the list but will still be running.

6. Click Disable all, this will remove all of the check marks in the Services list.

7. Click on Hide all Microsoft services. Click on Apply then OK

clean%20boot%202_zpsekds879g.png

Click on Restart in the window that opens.

When the computer is restarted it will boot normally.

Let me know if the problem persists after restarting the computer.

If the issue resolved after performing clean boot then you need to find out which startup service or program you have disabled causing the issue. To do that you need to enable few services and startup programs and restart your computer you will do this till issue comes back then you will know one or more last few enabled startup items causing the issue. You will one at time disable last enabled startup items and each time you have disabled a startup item restart your computer to find out if problem resolves if it does then you have found the cause of the problem its the last disabled startup item causing the problem.
