HP Spectre x360 13.5 inch 2-in-1 Laptop PC 14-ef0000 (3Y838AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

I very recently bought a HP Spectre 13.5" laptop for general use, but I also require it for gaming. The specs are very good and don't cause any problems, as it has a 12th gen i7 and SSD storage. I mainly play osu! on it, which is a fast-paced rhythm game. Through this, I found that my laptop has consistent input latency of about 40 milliseconds, which is deadly for enjoying gaming. I have a clean install of Windows 11, and I've tried experimenting with every solution I could find on the internet to reduce input latency to no avail. Latency this high is beyond frustrating, especially when everything else performs completely normally. How do I fix this?

I carried out all of these updates as you recommended, but the issue persists. Are there any other possible ways of fixing this input latency problem? If anything is unclear, I'd be happy to clarify. Thanks again for your patience.

Hello @bweedon 

My options are exhausted. I recommend the following:


HP warranty valid -> Contact HP Support for service repair


HP warranty expired:

You should have it serviced by a professional notebook (chip level) repair store.


Good luck
