i have an asus rog gl552jx gaming laptop with the folowing specs-
nvidia 950m gtx 2gb
intel i7 4720hq
12 gb ram
1tb hdd, 128gb ssd
the laptop is 2 years old and it workd really well for the first year. I could play most of the games at good frame rates including heavy games like gta5 and fallout 4. But since a year the performance of my laptop has gone down significantly to the point that it lags even while i play a 50mb java game. I mainly play dota 2 and i get hardly 20-25 fps in that in lowest possible settings whereas at the beginning i would get 60-70 fps at ultra settings. I even checked the task manager while the game is on and my cpu , memory and gpu usage is below 30% which means my latop isnt overclocking yet it cannot run the games properly. I have tried every possible solution from clean installing os again, to reinstalling nvidia drivers. I am really out of options. Can anybody please help me

It is in high performance mode. And yes the laptop does heat up but how do i check temperature? And how can heating up cause such low gaming performance? Also what is the solution for overheating?

u might have to replace ur thermal paste if it is a heating problem. Use msi after burner or anything and check the temps. when the laptop is running too hot the cpu downclock itself to cool down.

I will try replacing thermal paste. And yes i have selected nvidia graphics card while playing. It also shows usage of nvidia graphics while gaming in Task manager. Still the game has such low fps rates. Its unplayable. Also i checked for the temperatures in msi afterburner. They are constant at about 60-65 while the game is running.
