I have a HP Pavilion 15- p104ne with Intel 4th gen. Core i5 4210U Processor, 8GB RAM, 750GB HDD and 2GB Nvidia Geforce 840m Graphics Card.
The issue with it is that when i play games on it without plugging in adaptor i get about 30 fps in game but when I plug adaptor in then i get 10 fps, mean performance decreases. Also while playing if it is plugged in and i switch off the adaptor the fps decrease to 1..." Please help to solve the issue."
The things i have tried are:
Changing Power Options from balanced or power saver to high performance
Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips, Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you out 🙂
As I understand the FPS reduces when the adapter is connected to the PC, however, it works well with an approximately 30 FPS without the adapter,
I appreciate that you've attempted the steps mentioned and I'll be more than glad to help you out:
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.
