Hi, I'll start off with my specs: Windows 8.1, i7 5500U CPU 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 5500 aprx mem 4GB.

I started using this laptop again and was running into FPS issues on my steam games, I updated the graphics drivers and that seemed to really help. Games were running perfectly. When I ran into the issues again now, I can't get them to stop.
This is happening on all my Steam games so I don't think it's the game files, I know it's not the drivers. I've been working all day on eliminating and ending tasks that take up too much CPU and Memory (like Windows Defender and some Lenovo bloatware I never removed) but nothing is helping. Really frustrated as everything was just working fine.
