HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-cx0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, so I have been using my laptop for a lot of gaming recently and I have noticed it has been overheating a lot but I didn't take much notice but now it's running slow in any and every game I try to play, my laptop runs normally apart from that and I have no issues it is just when I go into games its annoyingly slow so I was wondering if anyone could help me?

try also to reroll back drivers…. drivers are made to support new models… so unless you have the rtx models gpu, i say use older drivers about a year newer when your card is released.

also make sure Online game is set to use the nvidia gpu and not the integrated one.
