For the past month or so i have been getting severe fps drops while playing simple games like counter strike and minecraft. It goes from 50-60 fps down to 4-5 fps. I have been trying to fix it in so many diffrent ways, i cleaned my registry, checked for malware, changed my virtual RAM. I have tried everything i have read about. I have an alienware m11x with 2gb ram, nvidia geforce gt 335m, 1.30Ghz processor speed. Tell me if you know how to fix it! sorry if i posted this in the wrong category

If it ran these fine before then it could be overheating maybe due to dust building up. Run HWMonitor to check what temps you hit when it happens.

There's your problem. 70-80 degrees is really hot. Your GPU is overheating.

You can increase your GPU fan speed by using a software.

OR you can remove you can apply thermal paste on your GPU's heatsink. ALSO: Have you checked if you're laptop's got any sort of dust in it ?

i would recomend msi afterburner rather than riva tuner. rivatuner is potentialy dangerous if you dont know what your doing and is badly described. where as msi afterburner has a great help section that is really easy to follow.

Well, i am sending in my computer because of motherboard issues, since the fan and the gpu are also attached to it they give you new ones, at least that is what i was told. So when i get it replaced if it still does it i will give those programs a try, thank you!
