@Shadow_YT Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that while playing the games dropping the FPS.


There are many ways to increase FPS and system performance: 

  • Update the BIOS. 

For desktop PCs, go to HP Desktop PCs - Updating the BIOS

For notebook PCs, go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS 

  • Update the graphics driver. 

Go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your PC model, then select the driver for your graphics card. 

  • Most games allow you to change the graphics settings. Using a lower graphic quality often improves FPS. 

  • Close any applications or programs that are not being used. 

  • Turn on Game Mode. Game Mode is a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update that improves gaming performance by limiting background processes and programs from using system resources while a game is running.
