Alright, first of all, i'm new here. So sorry if i'm not all up with what goes on etc. etc.

But basically,

I bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series about 10 months ago. I've tweaked the performance so that everything (that I know of) is on 'High Performance' and runs as fast as it can. All games that I have played (ARK - Medium - 30FPS / RUST - Lowish - 40FPS / CS - Medium - 70FPS) have ran fairly well for what my laptop can run them. That is until, about a week or so ago. All of the performance of these games have basically gone to, well, crap. Even Minecraft. I run it with OptiFine and low graphics, and STILL only achieve 20-35 FPS. It's pathetic!

So far I have:

- Unparked my CPU's
- CCleaner'd
- Uninstalled programs that I don't use (Apart from the ones that I don't know what they do)
- Upgraded to Windows 10 (Increased FPS by about 5 or so)

My Specs:

-Brand: DELL
-Model: Inspiron 15 7000 Series
-Bought From/Price: $1800 AUD
-OS: 64 Bit
-CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5500U CPU @ 2.40GHz
-GPU: AMD Radeon r7 m270 / Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500
-Resolution: 4K (Turned down to 1366 x 768)
-RAM: Dual Core 16GB (8x2)

If you could help me fix this, it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks heaps!
