HP Gaming too slow

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15 CX0144TX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, my pavilion 15 cx0144tx was terribly slow since i bought it on the end of last year. Its running on core i7-8750H 8th Gen (2.2Ghz able to boost up 4.1Ghz), 8Gb ddr4 sdram. Storage is 1TB HDD. The operating system is Windows 10. 

I've tried everything, clearing up unnecessary apps, minimize every graphic related setting, but still cannot achieve my expectation.  Is it because of the HDD instead of SSD drive?

@Karl1795 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that gaming is too slow.


I will need a few details to provide an accurate solution; 

When was the last time it worked without these issues (date)? 

Which games are causing these issues and are they online games or installed on your PC? 

Have you attempted any steps on your own before posting on HP Forums? 

What is the product number of your computer? (Ensure you don't share any personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc..). 


In the meantime, you may try the below steps, as even if the game is compatible with your system hardware it may have a slow performance because you are using the windows 8, 8.1 or 10 as the OS uses most of the CPU & graphics card usage, you might want to reduce the visual effects for windows to save the amount of CPU & Graphics card usage required to run your game properly. 


Here's how you do it: 

  • Go to Start Menu > click on Settings. 

  • Type performance > choose Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows.  

  • In the new window, go to the Visual Effects and select Adjust for best performance. 

  • click Apply and ok...this should do the trick.
