Hello i have an ASUS laptop k556U with Intel i7 7th genereation CPU, my gpu is Geforce 940mx.
3 Months ago i experienced fps drops in my games for 1-30 secs every 2 mins in my games. i searched it on google i found that i must reinstal my drivers. i went to device manager deleted my graphics driver, then delete all the nvidia stuff, reinstaled the drivers and my laptop is perfect. 1 Month ago i had again the same problem so i thought i will do the same thing that i did 3 months ago and i will work i supposed. It didnt work, so i searched again on google and found other way to uninstall my drivers, so i found DDU. I used DDU and again my laptop was working as usual. Now for the 3rd time i have again the same problem, and neither of the previous solutions are working. i tried to uninstall even in safe mode with DDU i tried every thing i cant fix my laptop. I am so annoyed because i am in university and i need my laptop cause i am working on it. Please can someone help me fix this problem? I think i gave enough information, if not just message below so i can answer. Please Please Please i need some help.

THank you very much

(sorry for my english)

to be honest, the 940m isn't a great GPU, although its sounds good, and most certainly better than the Intel HD 520 (it's the one i think is on your lappie) it's not great at all. If you have the 1080p panel, it's really not gonna game well :(

For some games it will be fine, but lowest settings on anything new, AAA or really demanding.

I suspect your biggest problem is in game settings. Or perhaps you have changed a global setting in the Nvidia Control panel which is effecting games. I would also add that if you use Geforce experience to optimise your games. Don't it's tripe, and on a laptop will destroy the gaming experience.

You could try a number of things.

1. Do a fresh install of latest drivers. Try using the Nvidia custom install option, which allows you to do a clean install (remove old drivers and profiles).
2. Restore all settings to the Nvidia control panel to default, and all in game settings to low. Making sure that in whatever game you play you turn of things like Anti-aliasing (AA) Anistropic Filtering (AF) , Post processing, motion blur, and anything else that's gonna hog resources, and impact FPS.
3. If neither of those work, consider backing up your data, and re-installing windows. Given the kind of problems you have it's possible windows has become corrupt, and a fresh install, with clean driver installations may help get the responsiveness come back.

well, you need an external drive for the back up, or a partition on your HD, then re-install windows from scratch. You should have a CD with your machine. Otherwise you can download the installer from Microsoft, and use the Activation code that comes with your laptop.
