Hi guys, im running out of ideas, recently i acquired a lenovo y520 and the problem is that the OS (windows 10 home) detects the gtx 1060 but refuses to use it beyond 10%...



the specs are these:

i5 7300hq

8gb ram ddr4 @2133mhz

Nvidia gtx 1060 max-q 3gb





Software:

Nvidia Drivers: 417.22

BIOS version: 5xcn10ww







how do i know this?:

i runned afterburner and the gpu maintains 40C and 600mhz running any game, and the performance is awful,

for example, i cant even get 30fps playing monster hunter on lowest settings.



what have i tried?:

i configured nvidia panel to use the gpu on global settings, also program settings individually.


thanks!
