Alright then, I'm going to need more details to better understand what might be happening.
- Did this just start recently or has it always done this.
- What games are doing this (saying all games doesn't explain which ones you are playing) and what are the game settings?
- What is the FPS when it lags.
- Is the lag constant or intermittent? In other words does it play good then drop for a few seconds, then run good again?
- What is the temperature when the lag occurs?
- Did you update the graphics driver to the latest from NVIDIA?

Recently I started gaming
I am playing far cry, call of duty black ops 3 etc.
And in all graphics settings...like low to ultra it's lagging
When it lags fps drops to 5-6 and sometimes 1 also
Lag is constant
Gaming time temperature goes about 70-80
Like I can't touch more than 5 second
I always update graphics driver whan it's available

OK. Just so you know, you need to be plugged in when gaming. The system will operate at full power only when plugged in.
I'm not sure whats happening. You say almost all games are lagging. which ones don't lag?
Your system doesn't meet the Recommended specs in the first two games you mentioned, but it does meet the minimum. In such case, those games would probably have to be set to medium or low settings to work.
But It shouldn't be running at 6fps constantly. Perhaps you either have a faulty video card, or you have something in the background running that's eating up your CPU resources. You can run the windows Task Manager and select the Processes tab to see whats running. Click the CPU tab to display highest to lowest. If you have something other than the game taking up high percentages, you can disable it.
Also, make sure the NVIDIA control panel is set to run your games on the 1050 card only. Sometimes it can default to the CPU integrated graphics instead. You can set it to only do this per what ever game, or you can set it to run the NVIDIA card Globally for everything. Remember to be plugged in to the AC adapter.
Follow the example photo below to do this...
Let me know what happens.

OK so if you post a brief description of what you've tried already, it saves us all a lot of time. 😉
Have you run the UEFI Diagnostics also to check the hardware?
If all else fails, are you under warranty still? If so, you need to contact HP Support directly.
Alternatively, you can reinstall Windows yourself and see if it clears up the issue. I would not install anything other than Windows updates afterward and one game to test with.
