FPS drops every 2 seconds

HP Recommended
HP Laptop 17-an0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Ok so basically i have this laptop since 2017 aprox. and it has been workin awesome all this time but like 5 months ago suddenly everytime i ran a "heavy" game like The Witcher 3 every 2 seconds or so the fps drops from 60 to 0 and it stutters a lot. With this pc i was able to play Gta V in ultra but right now i can't even play it in low.

As i said before, only happens with heavy games, for example i can play games like League Of Legends or Valorant IN LOW GRAPHICS, without a problem.

I alreayd tried updating drivers

@lolok6 I'm afraid this device is not designed for high performance gaming, that said, there are many ways to increase FPS and system performance, starting with using low resolution in-game settings and then the below steps:

  • Update the BIOS.

    For notebook PCs, go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS

  • Update the graphics driver.

    Go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your PC model, then select the driver for your graphics card.

  • Most games allow you to change the graphics settings. Using a lower graphic quality often improves FPS.

  • Close any applications or programs that are not being used.

  • Turn on Game Mode. Game Mode is a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update that improves gaming performance by limiting background processes and programs from using system resources while a game is running.

    1. Press the Windows key and G to open the Game bar.

    2. In the game bar, click Settings.

    3. Click the check box next to the game title to enable Game Mode for that game.

      Plug notebook PCs into an AC adapter to give the graphics card more power.
