Reduce in FPS while playing high graphics games in plugged in battery status

Hp Pavilion 15 power cb518-tx

My laptop runs smooth on battery with good fps while playing GTA 4 but in plugged in status it starts to lag like hell and the fps drops too low.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Did you try using a higher capacity charger and does the issue persist?

Make sure your Nvidia settings are set to maximum performance, not just Windows power options.

Set Nvidia to use Maximum Performance in both Global and Program settings (choose the specific game in Program settings).

If the issue still persists try performing a complete system recovery on your PC.

  • Refer this article to know how to perform a system recovery on your PC. If the issue still persists, please contact HP phone support and get the service options.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
