Re: My Games Lag When Not Plugged In

Hi! @dhruv_saraiya, Welcome to HP forums.

 

I understand that game lags when the laptop is running only on battery.

 

Don't worry I will try to help you out.

 

Please try the steps recommended below.

 

First, open the power settings, then click "change plan settings" beside the "balanced (recommended)" option. Then click "change advanced power settings" on the screen that appears. In the dialog box, scroll down and expand "Multimedia settings". Then expand "when playing video" and then change the "plugged in" option to balanced.

 

Also, Press on the battery icon and then go to power saving mode/settings and change it to high performance when unplugged.

 

If the issue still persists please update BIOS and graphics driver from the links below.

 

Link to update graphics driver.

 

Link to update BIOS. 

 

 

Let me know if this works!

Have a great day ahead! Smiley Happy

@dhruv_saraiya

It looks like you were interacting with @MrRobot, but he's out for the day 

And I'll be glad to help you out.

 

This is the Riddle_Decipher at your service and glad to help,

I understand that your games lag when not connected to the adapter,

And I'm glad you've followed all the steps suggested by MrRobot, that said, i have few tricks up my sleeve to help you resolve this concern,

 

Considering this is an HP Pavilion - 15-au111tx with NVIDIA® GeForce® 940MX (2 GB DDR3 dedicated) (Click here for product specs)

Here's what I recommend: Right-click your desktop background and select NVIDIA Control Panel. You can also find this tool by performing a Start menu (or Start screen) search for NVIDIA Control Panel or by right-clicking the NVIDIA icon in your system tray and selecting Open NVIDIA Control Panel.

 

To quickly set a system-wide preference, you could use the Adjust image settings with the preview option. For example, if you have old hardware that struggles to play the games you want to play, you may want to select “Use my preference emphasizing” and move the slider all the way to “Performance.” This trades graphics quality for an increased frame rate.

 

By default, the “Use the advanced 3D image settings” option is selected. You can select Manage 3D settings and change advanced settings for all programs on your computer or just for specific games. NVIDIA keeps a database of the optimal settings for various games, but you’re free to tweak individual settings here. Just mouse-over an option for an explanation of what it does.

 

If you have a laptop with NVIDIA Optimus technology — that is, both NVIDIA and Intel graphics — this is the same place you can choose which applications will use the NVIDIA hardware and which will use the Intel hardware.


Let me know if those steps worked for you. 

If they did, that’s awesome! 

Give us some reinforcement by clicking the solution and kudos buttons,

that’ll help us and others see that we’ve got the answers!
Good Luck.

Re: My Games Lag When Not Plugged In

Some of 3D games are actually graphics intensive and hense requires a lot of power to run without any glitches and the battery is not allowed by internal system to give required power to GPU to run frequently and even if you want to run certain games on battery try running it on Intel integrated GPU and this will solve your issue.

I don't work with HP but a user of it.

Re: My Games Lag When Not Plugged In

Kindly go to device manager and under battery uninstall the two drivers and restart your PC and insure to run on battery power do not plug the charger and restart your PC.
Do not worry the two uninstalled drivers are generic and will get installed automatically , now plug in charger see if it solves the issue.
Thank you...
