drop fps on all games even older games

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion - 15-au101nx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



A month ago i was playing GTA v and it was lagging drop fps ;i  noticed that the fan was not working so i replaced it but also there was a lag after a search on internet found that nvidia driver update was making the problem so i downgraded it old version and the game was playable again but now it became lagy again with bunch of other games that is very old like prince of Persia so i checked the nvidia driver and found it still downgraded so i updated it and still lagy then downgraded it again and still lagy

, it is good to know  that i played GTA V and other games on the same device perfectly without any lag about 2 years ago , 

the battery is dead for about three months not working doesn't charge and doesn't power-up the pc only power up while plunged in

i am playing  dragon ball z kakarot now first time i downloaded it was playable some lag but playable after two days it was lagging like every second .

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  


Right-click your desktop background and select NVIDIA Control Panel. You can also find this tool by performing a Start menu (or Start screen) search for NVIDIA Control Panel or by right-clicking the NVIDIA icon in your system tray and selecting Open NVIDIA Control Panel. 


To quickly set a system-wide preference, you could use the Adjust image settings with the preview option. For example, if you have old hardware that struggles to play the games you want to play, you may want to select “Use my preference emphasizing” and move the slider all the way to “Performance.” This trades graphics quality for an increased frame rate. 


By default, the “Use the advanced 3D image settings” option is selected. You can select Manage 3D settings and change advanced settings for all programs on your computer or just for specific games. NVIDIA keeps a database of the optimal settings for various games, but you’re free to tweak individual settings here. Just mouse-over an option for an explanation of what it does. 


If you have a laptop with NVIDIA Optimus technology — that is, both NVIDIA and Intel graphics — this is the same place you can choose which applications will use the NVIDIA hardware and which will use the Intel hardware.
