Experiencing a significant drop in frame rate from my games

i had purchased this laptop brand new from the store in mid November and had a good time playing games on it with no problems what so ever. About 2 weeks ago i began experiencing a noticeable drop in frame rate from games such as Team fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Bioshock infinite, etc. Even though I could literally run those games at the peak of their performance with nothing going wrong, Now i cant even run Team Fortress 2 on low settings and break above 30fps
I don't know if this is a virus or a screw loose on my Laptop but i'd like a little help or even a solution.

I'm running on a Geforce 740m, 8gb of ram and an Intel core i7-4700MQ cpu running at 2.40 GHz while on Windows 8

  1. What are your temps?
  2. Probably dust or possibly animal hair in your machine causing your GPU to throttle, so you might need to clean it.

    i made sure there was nothing obstructing the fan and i checked every nook a cranny but it all seems fine
  4. If the fans seem the same and the temps seem the same might be some kind of malware on your pc.

    I'm by no means a tech expert however I had a similar problem which turned out to be a memory leak. (I think xD)

    As stated I have no background in computing but i thought I'd mention it
  7. Once again, what are your temps during load? Idle temps don't mean much.
