Gaming laptop slowing down even though it says there are no problems

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 17-cd0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi there! I have recently bought a gaming laptop and have had it for around 7 months and all the games i have played have ran absolutely fine on every game i've played. For example i could play Sea of Thieves on ultra settings and have a constant 60 fps no matter the situation. However, now i have started to notice some performance issues when i am playing games, for example if i go somewhere big it will start to lag. It always used to run absolutely fine when doing these however now even with the settings turned down, i lag. I have literally run 100 tests, optimised all my disks, defraged them and i have used Avast cleanup premium to remove broken registry, clean up my whole pc and stop slowing down programs, and every single time i do a test, it says my PC is absolutely fine with no problems and it says theres no viruses. I have checked my task manager and everything seems fine, my RAM, CPU and GPU usages are fine but my games just lag. I really need help with any way to fix this as it is really starting to get on my nerves! xd My specs are: p -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz -8Gb RAM -NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with Max-Q Design -60Hz -Windows 10 Home 64-bit Please can someone help me with this issue! (:
