Hello.I bought a laptop about a year ago..I never had any problems with it..played every game i wanted just fine but recently i get fps drops and stutters all the time even if my laptop specs should play the game on high easily it gets them even on low settings..i found that my nvidia drivers being the latest wasn't the best idea..i got an older version and the situation improved but i still get them..I was thinking maybe it's the hdd but i checked it and it seemed ok.I thought maybe it's heat but even on demanding games the max i see is 60sth without a laptop base..since i got the laptop base i see max 50..I get some sound stutters as well but can't find anything faulty there...No idea what it could be..that's why i didn't know where to post this topic..any help would be appreciated..

 

Here is my specs

Then you need to update the gpu drivers by going to the nvidia site:

https://www.geforce.com/drivers

 

And i personally use the Nvidia experience.  That helps keep drivers updated.

Change the settings in your game a bit?

don't think gpu is the issue here since the game demands are way lower than my gpu..I tried those settings..but the game just crashed at start up all the time.

One reason why I hate laptops.  I will leave this for someone else to answer cause I am not sure as to what else to suggest cause I have personally never had this problem nor worked on laptops etc that has had this problem.
