Check the HDD health with HD Tune or HDD Sentinel. If the hdd has degraded and became slow, then all apps will be suffering from this. I would recommend replacing the lazy hdd with an SSD. The impact is huge, i had the same model before and i can say that games like League of Legend were playable on 90+ fps. So, the hdd may be the issue here...worth checking.

Check the health tab. See if there are any pending sectors and check the reallocation count. IF everything is still good, i would still recommend zero-fill-ing it with HDShredder. It refreshes the disk a bit.

well about sectors he says warning ..
im not sure about that but i still think that its the gpu problem because i tries playing a game for 1hour+ and when i go to check the temperature i found the cpu on 70°c and the gpu is sleeping it didnt even pass 50°c
thats why i think that my computer isnt even using the dedicated gpu
