Solved! Gigabyte laptop super slow

Jan 15, 2019
Hey there, I purchased a gigabyte p56 a little over a year ago and I have had probelems since then. I use a verity of photo and video editing softwares but it's been super slow with the hardware that it has built in. This laptop has an i7 7700hq, Ddr4-2400 16gb, an SSD with 256gb and a terabyte hdd(7200), as well as a gtx 1070. It also can't seem to play games at a solid fps unless it's fans are set to Max. The computer also seems to run hot, which I'm told is normal for laptops.
