I went and visited my friend over the weekend and took my gaming laptop. No issues running modern titles at all. However when I got to his house and fired it up. I was experiencing gigantic frame drops I went from well into the hundreds to like 25fps. What was weird was the issue sorted itself out with sitting, running games once again really smooth. However its doing the same thing now that I got back from his house. It seems like a weird limit especially no matter how hard the game is to run it hits between 18-30. Where as depending on game and settings before it was 70-144. No frame difference on low and ultra settings on Far Cry 5.
System: HP Omen 17in

RX580
12GB ram
I7-7700

Thanks for any help and advice! I look forward to getting back to enjoying playing games.

Check the sensor data with GPUz to see if temps are normal and that the card is not throttling (while under usage). Are the gpu fan(s) still spinning? Anything look out of place on the card? Maybe the cooler shifted and detached and/or a fan plug came disconnected during transport. Heat sinks have some weight to them and moving your PC around can cause damaging jolts that can even break the circuit boards or mobo PCIE connector.

EDIT: I now see that it is a laptop. Might be trickier to peek inside if it's a laptop. Start with software to analyze what's going on. Besides GPUz, check task manager and resource monitor in Windows to see CPU and other hardware activity.
