Whats wrong with my CPU?

I have had my laptop for about 3 months now and it the GeForce recommends ultra settings on many games and it worked for the first month but now i cant get more then 60 FPS on medium setting on games such as smite and LoL.

Specs:
SPECS:
GPU: GeForce GT 755M
CPU:Intel(R) Core (TM) i7-4700 @2.4 Ghz
8 gb ram
windows 8.1

I have updated everything and my temps while in game are 64 C for my cpu and around 60 for my GPU i dont think its to hot is my graphics card just not working properly?

Any Help is appreciated!

  1. Is V-synch enabled? If your monitor is only 60Hz it will lock it to 60FPS.

    Synch :D the devs like to call it Sync though you're more correct imo :D

    Do you agree that's what the problem is?

    Yep , I do agree its something software based and in-game settings is software based then yes I agree , maybe its also caused by the fact that Laptop Gpus after a while get a drastic decrease in performance but that doesn't appear to be the case here.
  5. I have turned v sync off to see if it could reach its old benchmarks and it can't
  6. Overheating and throttling maybe? Is it full of dust? Do you play on a metal pad or on a pillow?
  7. I play on my wooden desk I thought about it throttling but it isn't getting over 65 degrees and it does it after a fresh reboot and I just cleaned it but I've only been playing for about 2 months also

    You had before and after benchmarks and it definitely dropped in performance though right?

    Does it seem like the CPU or the GPU is having more trouble keeping up?

    Tried lowering Anti-aliasing?
  9. Anti aliasing is off and I'm not sure just when there is a lot going on, on the screen it drops low and it seems the gpu is having trouble i guess it might be something they added in a patch
  10. You could install MSI Afterburner and set up the on screen display to track your CPU core usages, your GPU usage, and your RAM usage. It will help diagnose what is going on. I'm not 100% sure that it is compatible with laptop, I never tried.
  11. OK I'm at work ATM I'll be back and will try
  12. it seems everything is going into the performance for the game no side programs taking up memory could there be a virus slowing down my laptop?
  13. Which benchmark have you run? Could you run 3DMark so I can compare it to the average scores in your hardware category?
  14. yes im downloading it now
  15. ok what information from the test do you need?

    Just link me to the score and I'll do the rest :D
  17. http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/3758994

    Everything went fine with the graphics but when it came to a lot going on during the physics test it shit the bed with 24 FPS
  18. Ok I checked out other scores with your exact hardware. The scores that are higher are showing a higher Turbo clock for your CPU. Your CPU seems to have Turbo disabled. Fix that.

    how do i turbo boost my cpu do i change in BIOS? Little help 0_o

    Let me see if I can find your manual. Unless you can use another computer to type here while accessing your BIOS? I'm good at guessing :P What model laptop exactly?
  21. i have a Lenovo y510P no sli and sadly not at the moment there isn't another computer avaible
  22. could we possibly do this tomorrow when i have my tablet charged??
  23. OMG Lenovo's website is an abortion. Do you think you can find me a link to the manual?
  24. IF the info I want is available, it's going to be in there. Let me skim through it.
  25. wow useless, but at least on page 26 they tell you how to access BIOS. We can do this now or tomorrow. Not sure how long it will take. Maybe 2 minutes, maybe 20 depending on how fast it can boot back up after you go looking around in the BIOS.
  26. The second manual is good for hardware replacements but no BIOS menus. We will find it in the BIOS though, probably in a power management section.
  27. well funny things is i have been into my bios before but getting around inside i have no clue but also i want to thank you for all your help! and this cpu boots up rather fast and im in the ET time zone its 1230 right now and i will be on around 4 ish tomorrow!

    thanks again
  28. there is also a power management section in the control panel which i cant set the cpu performance percentage but i don't know if it goes over 100%

    It will be in the BIOS called Speed Step or Turbo Core or something just needs to be enabled.
  30. oh ok well we can find out tomorrow.
  31. Ok I'm back and on my tablet what is the first step?
  32. Go in the BIOS.

    Start fishing around through the various tabs and look for something like Turbo Core, Speed Step, ect. Might be in power management or CPU section.
  33. Nothing in the different tabs
  34. Possibly a Windows setting then. We really need an Intel/Windows expert in here. Let me PM one.
  35. Yeah the bios version that I have on this laptop has nooo settings to mess with really.
  36. Try Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Power Options, Create a Power Plan - enable High Performance and save the plan
  37. I already have everything on max performance I did find a place to set CPU maximum % performance
  38. Does ntune still work on laptops or is that too old? Might be worth a shot.
  39. Can you increase Vcore in bios?
  40. No there is really nothing to do in the BIOS on my laptop and I just refreshed my PC seeing if it helps
  41. That's weird. Are you getting into bios by pressing F2 on start up?
  42. I wonder if there is a special combination of keys that need pressed to get advanced BIOS options. I remember the older Gigabyte BIOS used to have that crap like needing to press alt + F1 to show "advanced user options"
  43. with windows 8 it doesn't give you a f2 option you have to do a restart that takes you into the BIOS which is defiantly not the advanced settings all it is are options like turn on safe boot and random stuff.
  44. I gather the laptop is still under warranty. RMA it
  45. yes but im in luck refreshing my cpu back to factory settings beside my files it cleared something out that slowed down my games now its fine 0_o thanks though guys must of been virus or something ^^

    That or something wasn't set right in registry. Who knows.
