Hi. My laptop three weeks ago was having trouble with frame rates, any game I ran was unplayable because the frame rate was so low. When the laptop was well it ran most games very smoothly on high settings (Overwatch), or even on medium (Witcher 3). I tried everything I could to solve the fps problem but they all pretty much failed.

I ran out of options and sent my laptop in for repair and I just got it back yesterday. The frame rate issue was fixed but the games that I could run before on high settings like Overwatch were only stable and smooth on low settings. Before when games were running my GPU would mostly be below 80% in task manager, now its mostly stays at 90 - 100%. Turns out the people who repaired it replaced the graphics card along with the motherboard. Is there a way to bring it back to how it used to be?

Any help or answer would be greatly appreciated!

My laptop's a lenovo y520-15ikbn and its specs are:
i5-7300HQ
GTX 1050 4 GB
8 GB ram

From hwmonitor, CPU package:
Value - usually at 55 - 60c, 61 - 65c (when overwatch is on)
Min - 49c
Max - 62 c, 71c (when overwatch is on )

GPU:
Value - 55c
Min - 42
Max - 62

From what Overwatch is displaying (gpu temp) it would start at 55 - 60c but goes up by 1 after 20 - 30 seconds.
