I was particpating in the overwatch beta and during the weekend my HP Omen Notebook crashed. After this crash there was a sudden performance drop in all games i play. Games where i had 60+ frames i was now getting 15-25 and sudden crahses started to occur when playing and browsing the internet (only seems to happen on Google Chrome). I have reinstalled my graphic cards using the HP Recovery manager. Played with settings on the Nvidia control. Briefly perofrmance returned but then another crashed happaned when playing dark souls 3 and i have been unable to get my graphics back and the crashes on chrome returned.
I have an external fan Cooler Master SF-15 Laptop Cooler which was on at the time

Have you tried uninstalling the beta version of overwatch? Here are some links that I think may help:
