So I have had this Dell G7 15 Gaming laptop for about 4 months and have been playing games on it since the start. About 1 month ago I started encountering sudden FPS drops on one of my games and ignored at first. But the problem was very consistent I would face FPS drops about every 5 mins with frame rates sometimes dropping to as low as 10 for a time period of about 15 seconds.
At first, I thought this was a problem I was facing while playing only 1 game but soon I realized that the problem is not with the game but with windows itself since I'm facing the same problem on every game.
I tried many solutions including updating my driver, reinstalling my driver, reinstalling my game, lowering my graphics setting and changing my Registry settings however nothing is able to solve this problem and now my game would not even go beyond 40 FPS
while it was running on 120 about a month ago with no problems.
I'm considering resetting my laptop in hopes of going back to my previous setting with this being my last option before I do so. Please help.
