4 FPS in online game

  1. Hiya all,

    Recently I noticed my FPS in online gaming dropped to 4 FPS.
    I had to close the game client, and re-open it again for it to go away.
    After that I had only 10 FPS.
    My laptop is getting very slow, and sometimes the system hangs too, most often when I use multiple programs.
    The hardware is not damaged, I know this for a fact because it never fell nor bumped.

    I remember when I first bought this laptop 1,5 year ago, I had no speed problems, and the MMORPG I mentioned
    above also ran smoothly with maximal graphic settings. Now I get around 4-10 FPS with lowest graphic settings.

    Things I already did;
    • Full CHKDSK
    • Defragmentation
    • Full on-boot virus scan with Avast
    • Full clean with CCleaner (temp files and registery)
    • Removed all unnecessary/rarely used programs
    I have a dxdiag results report ready, in case you guys need it.


    General system specs:
    Thanks in advance.

    You could be running out of memory, depending on what you have going on.

    What resolution are you playing at on this laptop? Also how high are your graphical settings.

    I am playing on 1600x900, which I have never changed.
    The graphic settings in-game are now on the lowest. They used to be on the highest.
