My laptop is suddenly constantly dropping frames

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15t-da000 CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

It happened all of the sudden with no major updates or changes. The fps drops will consistently occur when I do anything intensive like play games, and will sometimes occur when I am not playing games. I tried restoring my computer while keeping files and removing apps, but it hasn't helped. I have run the System fast test, the system intensive test, and the component test using the hardware diagnostic tool, and everything passed. Any suggestions?

I reviewed your post and I understand that you are facing FPS drop issues.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I see that you have a customized computer. Do you have a graphics card installed on the computer?

 

Meanwhile, the computer that you have is not designed for gaming. Usually, the gaming laptops will have better cooling solutions compared to home/office or business computers and this impacts the gaming experience.

 

Having said that, I recommend you update the BIOS and the graphics driver from the below link and check if it helps.

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

Hi, thanks for the welcome! My laptop has the UHD Graphics 620, which I believe is the graphics card installed. The FPS drops are an issue because they also occur periodically when I'm watching things online or when I have a few tabs open and not just playing games. In addition, things had been working smoothly for about a year before I began having problems. I have since updated the BIOS and the graphics driver, but it hasn't helped. Do you have any other suggestions?

It passed all of the system tests using the hardware diagnostics tool, so I think it's a software issue.

I reset my computer but it did not resolve the issue. I opted for the keep my files option because I have some work I didn't want to lose
