Lag in every game problem

by Czarson / June 7, 2014 3:30 AM PDT

Hello, i recently bought an asus laptop Asus RV700J to be exact and im experiencing a problem. When im playing any game for instance L4D2 or Sniper Elite V2, game runs good and smooth but after a while i keep getting 2 or 3 seconds of really low framerate. I didnt have this problem in L4D2 before only in games like Dark Souls 2.

Im really damn desperate and im trying to find out what the hell is wrong with my laptop. I defragmented my discs already, scanned the whole computer and checked the CPU speed with CPUID and it all was fine.

My specs:
Windows 8.1 64 bit
Intel Core i5
4gb ram x1

Integrated graphic cards:
Intel HD graphics 4000

Geforce GT 635M.

1. Be sure the game is set to use the GPU. It's not automatic and no standards here and since I don't own your model, you must know this area.

2. x1 stick of ram. That's a bottleneck.

The GT635M is entry level so be sure to keep the settings low. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-635M.66964.0.html shows a lot of green but look at those high setting FPS numbers. Pretty sad. This is no gamer laptop.

1. You mean that i should launch the game using the GT graphic card instead of the integrated one?

and 2. I was planning on buying another 4gb ram stick, do You think that would do the trick?

I already did but you questioned my answer so do your own tests. Try one, the other and what did you find?

2. No. I gave the link and it has the score. It will help, it won't change the score much.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
