Huge fps drop

Hi there

Normally my computer runs all games at 40fps+, but at these moments my computer's maximum fps is 5. I don't know what the problem could be. Yesterday I installed ccleaner and fixed all my issues and I could play games with no problems again. But the lag came again today. The same method didn't work this time to solve the problem.

Hope some of you can help me out.

Need to list all your system components and install something like HWMon and run Prime95 and Furmark to report temperatures for CPU and GPU as well.

Did anything change in the last few days?

I don't know. I haven't been using my pc in the last few days. I turned on my pc after 5 days and started to play, and it was lagging. how can I add dxdiag on this site? lol

btw, I don't know what HWMon, Prime95 and Furmark is...

You download and install Prime95 and Furmark as well. Just start up HWMon and see what is says for CPU and GPU temps. You then start up Prime95 to load up the CPU and see how high it climbs - at least 15 minutes. Then move on to Furmark.

Or, you can download OCCT to load up the CPU and GPU and has built in temp monitoring.

CPU = 60
GPU = 50

That under load or idle? If idling (e.g. writing on these forums) that's very high for both. What's the ambient air temperture in the room the PC sit in?

currently 19 degrees here.
but yeah, I'm only on this forum and youtube

Need you to list your system components - case and all.

Those temps seem really high, especially with 19 ambient (should idle in the 30s on both). Could be that your CPU cooler is no longer making full contact the CPU.

Do you regularly use compressed air (in a can) to blow dust out of the fins of the CPU and GPU coolers?

Well actually I don't really clean my computer that often, but I couldn't imagine that dust causes that much problem.

Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 900 @ 2.20GHz, ~2.2GHz
Card name: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family
Monitor Name: Generic PnP Monitor
Model: SAMSUNG HM251JI ATA Device (Drive)

what else do you need? :D

The big problem is that I have a laptop, and I don't know how to clean it inside. I don't know where to open it...
I remember I once did and all the components fell out, that's why I don't touch that area. Can you tell mere where the CPU is. For example top left corner or something...

By "that often" do you actually mean you've never used compressed air on the heatsinks? If that's the case it's probably caked on so thick it's a wonder it works at all given that CPU could be as old as 4.5 years.

If that doesn't fix it, might try uninstalling GPU drivers, rebooting in safe mode, running driversweeper, then re-installing GPU drivers.

Thank for the help, I'm leaving now. Got to open my pc and clean all the dust.
Really appreciate your help.
