Lenovo G51-35 poor performance

Hello everyone, I recently bought a Lenovo G51-35 with the model number 80m8. Now I never intended to play heavy games on it but older titles like warcraft 3, gta sa and all that. Thing is, I get very poor performance in those games. Warcraft TFT stutters like crazy when a decent number of units are on the screen and gta sa lags like crazy in some places. I tried running CS:GO and got fps below 20.

I have no idea what the problem is since I already have updated the drivers for the onboard VGA. Am I missing something?

  1. Hi,

    Here are some troubleshooting steps that may help in solving the issue.
    - Start by doing a clean install of the graphics driver.
    - Go to Device Manager and uninstall the AMD graphics driver.
    - Do also check Programs and Features then uninstall anything related to AMD.
    - Once done, download and install the latest driver.

    - Reboot your laptop once the driver has been installed then test it again after the reboot.

    I am doing this right now. By the way, I am running Windows 10 home edition, does that matter in any way? Since I have come across some posts saying win10 messes up some drivers sometimes.

    EDIT: Did everything you said, still same as before.

    I heard the AMD Radeon R5 Series is just as good as a Intel HD Graphics 4000, unfortunately that is whats in that laptop and I'm afraid it wont do you any good. Casual games like League of Legends should run fine though. I may be wrong but it's what I heard. :)

    Hey bro I have that same machine mines got the AMD A4 Apu and I had to upgrade the RAM from 4 gigs to 16 gigabyte and I put a 500 gigabyte SSD in the machine I've been running XCOM enemy Within at 720p medium settings and it runs beautiful you need to do a little upgrading on these cheaper laptops if you want to get some gaming performance out of it that said it's not a bad machine once you do those upgrades.

    If your laptop has the Intel Graphics chipset then I don't know what to say for you amd's chipsets for gaming are generally much better than Intel as far as I've heard...
