I have had my computer for 1 year now, and was able to play games on it and had Chrome open with tabs and everything. But recently, my laptop's CPU speed automatically drops to 0.46 GHz when I launch games like CS:GO. My fps used to be 100 but now it's like 20. I have my BIOS on default and I have all my drivers updated. The fan also randomly gets really loud when I'm not even running anything. When the fan gets loud, my computer speed instantly drops to 0.46 GHz regardless of CPU utilization. Also, my computer doesn't feel hot to the touch and I have also cleared dust using compressed air but it didn't seem to help.

My specs are:
i5-5200U @2.20 GHz
RAM 8.00 GB
running on Windows 8.1

if there's any more information needed please do ask. thanks!
