Games Suddenly Running Slow

November 7, 2013 1:22:58 AM

Hey guys, just after some opinions on an issue I'm having with my laptop. The computer runs fines, it's not running slowly or poorly that I've noticed.

However, playing a game is a completely different story. Usually if games are running slowly, I usually get indications by the main menus acting sluggishly and unresponsive, however all seems normal on that front too. It's only when I load up a game, do I notice beyond ridiculous load times, and terrible gameplay performance. I can run most games at lower settings to compensate but that only then makes them playable, not smooth and quickly like a game should on low settings. If anyone has any opinions on why this is happening, all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks all!
