Hi @abhishek2211,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community. 

 

I'd like to help!

 

Experiencing FPS (frames per second) drops while playing games on an HP Pavilion laptop can be frustrating, but there are several potential solutions to try. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can follow to address the issue:

 

Update Graphics Drivers

Ensure that your graphics drivers are up to date. Outdated drivers can cause performance issues. You can visit the HP website or the graphics card manufacturer's website (e.g., NVIDIA, AMD) to download the latest drivers.

 

Check Power Settings

Make sure your laptop is set to "High Performance" mode while gaming. This setting ensures that your laptop is using its full potential for gaming performance. You can adjust this setting in the Windows Control Panel or the HP Power Manager.

 

Close Background Applications

Close any unnecessary background applications that might be using system resources. This includes browser tabs, chat applications, and other software that can consume CPU and RAM.

 

Adjust In-Game Settings

Lower the graphics settings within the game itself. Set the resolution, texture quality, shadows, and other graphics options to a lower level to reduce the strain on your laptop's hardware.

 

Update the Game

Ensure the game itself is up to date with the latest patches and updates, as these can sometimes resolve performance issues.

 

Adjust Windows Visual Effects

In Windows, you can adjust the visual effects settings to prioritize performance. Right-click on "This PC," select "Properties," then click on "Advanced system settings," go to the "Advanced" tab, and click "Settings" under the "Performance" section. Choose the "Adjust for best performance" option or manually disable certain visual effects.

 

Consider Hardware Limitations

It's possible that your laptop's hardware might not be capable of running the game smoothly. Some games have high system requirements, and if your laptop's specifications are below the game's minimum requirements, you may experience performance issues.

 

If you've tried the above steps and are still experiencing FPS drops, it might be a hardware limitation.

 

If the issue persists, reach out to HP internal support for one on one interaction. 

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
