When I play games such as Fortnite and League of Legends, my laptop slows down and the fps drops significantly where it should be 100+ it goes to ~30. This has been occuring since the beginning of March. I replaced my motherboard, updated all drivers, reinstalled windows, removed any malware, set preferred graphics to Nvidia, but the problem still occurs. How can I fix this?
have u check dell site for any bios update?run a test using uniengine valley/heaven or furmark and see if the same thing happen
I already have the latest BIOS (1.8.1), even the dell site only has the 1.7.1 BIOS update.
wait so dell pull the 1.8.1 bios?i face the same issue before with my 7567 where i updated to the latest bios and few days after dell pull the bios update from their site due to certain issue.
I am not sure if they pulled it, but I have the 1.8.1 bios. Should i try to downgrade my bios back to 1.7.1?
if the bios is no longer available on dell site i think they might have pull it down.i say give it a try.
So i changed the bios back to 1.7.1, but the problem is still there. It didn't fix anything.
Is all ur power options on max performance?
And image settings and 3d options
If worst comes to worst just disable the Integrated graphics(use as last ditch)
I don't see why I would have to do that since my laptop is relatively new and still under the 1 year warranty. I've brought it to my IT department multiple times, but they weren't able to permanently fix the problem. They got it to work by changing some power settings but then the next day it stopped working again.
I have also noticed my CPU core speeds dropping significantly when in game, but my temps are still under 80 degrees C

This was happening to me on my Alienware 15 (GTX 970M)
I changed my settings in the Nvidia Control panel and that fixed it
Nvidia Control Panel: 3D Settings, Set to High Performance Nvdia Processor, Apply
Physx Config: Set to your Nvidia 1050, Apply
And set your laptop to High Performance when gaming
This personally fixed it for me I was have the same issue whilst playing Fortnite, So hopefully this'll work for you to. Hopefully I'm not too late
