I just purchased a gaming laptop for a decent price...and just finished installing all updates and installing BF4.

-Windows is set to maximum performance
-MSI software set to gaming performance
-no other programs running
-laptop is not hot.. can not play anything to get hot
-laptop is plugged into the power adapter

Laptop:
MSI GS70 Stealthpro 096
I7-4710hq CPU
16gb ram
gtx 970m 3gb GPU


I could not run BF4 on any setting without having low 20fps.

I ran furmark and could not get past 10fps!

From what I have read online I should be able to play games on high to ultra with mid 50's fps.

Any help would be great!

I can not find a way to turn off the Intel gpu. How can I tell which gpu it is using?

I have also read that when gaming if the MSI power button turns amber than it means its using the dedicated and white means intel.

When I game it does turn amber.
 


What are your idle temps? I find it hard to believe that your 970M is running only 53C at full load.

P.S. Sweet laptop

I ran furmark a couple more times. The results were terrible.

Max fps was 14 and average was 7. My gpu was at 100% load and the temps were in the mid 50's.

I do not believe I can get an accurate temp because it is not working properly. These fps are incredibly low, I am been searching for hours and still no luck on how to fix this. Maybe the gpu is toast.

My friend mentioned to me he thinks its because of my power adapter, the adapter that I am currently using is not the MSI one that comes with the laptop. It came with a universal charger/adapter which looks like it is underpowered for the laptop.

I did not believe it was the charger because should you not be able to game at proper fps without it being connected to a power source?
 


What is the output voltage and wattage of the adapter?

Did you try playing BF4 before updating to Windows 10, by any chance?
