Recently I noticed that my fps is dropping to 18 or below in every single game I play when it used to be 40-60. I defragged my hard drive and ssd. No issues. I cleaned it using CCleaner. No issues. I downloaded razer's game enhancer, razer cortex. I made sure every game was running on the GeForce graphics instead of the i7. Nothing worked. I have a DELL Inspirion 7559.
Video Card: GeForce GTX 960M
CPU: intel i7 @2.6GHz
Ram: 16gb
OS: Windows 10
Thanks for your help.

Since the 960m is older model graphics, I'm guessing you've had this a while? What are the temps? Laptops after a while can get dust clogged in the heatsinks and require taking apart and cleaning.

Ya since December 2016 I believe so about a year and a half. But do you mean temps while running a game or during normal use?

While running a game. That's when the most load is put on the hardware, and that's when overheating can occur if your processor coolers are excessively dirty.

CoreTemp says all 3 cores are 65,66,66,70 C while running pubg.
I messed with pubg and it gets about 70-90 fps. But when I play fornite or any other game the fps is 30 or less on the lowest quality settings. And the temps are around 60 with fortnite and other games.
