Nvidia Problems ?

So, i have Nvidia Geforce 740M and i7 4700MQ 2.40 GHz, 8gm ram and when i play games mostly League of Legends and i set the graphics to low to medium and i got barely 60fps and still having some lags. Any ideas where could be the problem?

How old is this machine?

Lag is more about your internet connection.

Gamers learn fast to get wired as WiFi can be subject to interference. The machine looks OK, but 740M is fairly entry level. Let's check that out. calls it middle class but game after game coughed up all RED results. finds priors with folk trying hard to get by with that.

In other words, keep lowering the settings and consider capping the framerate to say 60 or even lower. Over 60 is well, do we have to write why again?

Thanks for your replay. But i have to say something to you. All year i was playing with a standard fps of 130-120 with the graphics to medium to high. The last month started to show this thing with the 60fps and the graphics are low to medium.

And I to you.

That nugget was not in your top post. Changes happen in many areas.

1. Hardware (I ran PC repair shops so I saw a lot of hardware)
I learned to check fans, heatsink compound and the basics a lot. Then as the shop grew I taught others to check those basics.

2. Software. You have to know what software changed. There are some driver updates that can slow down the FPS in favor of less crashes, more texture or recently I saw changes that were to plug a memory leak. All this can drop the FPS and there's not a thing we can do about that.

Since you didn't reveal that up top I work with what you told me. It's not a strong card so to get that performance, everything would have to be just so. Now it's not the same and it's your PC so you know what's changed. I can't know what you installed since it worked.

There is another factor I always run into. Remember I always run into it since folk bring me problem machines. It's malware. I use Grif's advice at:
