Playing overwatch, fornite or WoT everything seems alright getting 50-60fps and after a while the fps just drops to 10 for like 15 seconds and it keeps happening over and over. does that mean my cpu is overheating or what? help

Doesn't appear to be heat*, but you are hitting 100% CPU utilization, which, sustained, could also cause frame drops.

What does you RAM/GPU utilization look like?

*CPU is definitely on the warm side, but shouldn't be throttling temps for most laptops.

Which laptop do you have specifically?

asus vivobook x556uq

i bought it with 4gb memory and planning to add 4 or 8 more because that way it is cheaper.
Maybe my 4gb memory is the issue ?

i-5 7200u 3.1ghz
nvidia 940mx 2gb
