on my laptop, it hs a "ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics" card. I downloaded League of Legends and it runs it at about 55 fps average. But after like 10 mins, it starts to drop to 6 fps average for like a couple mins thne goes back to normal, and laggs a lot. It just randomly does it, and it does sound like its heating up a lil.

i tried updating the drivers, which i think i did, this one: http://support.amd.com/us/psearch/Pages/psearch.aspx?ty...

an selected the windows 64 bit one. My laptop is an Acer 7535-5020.

specs: amd athlon dual processor 2.1 ghz
4 gb memory

i have a 2 desktops which i usually play my games on, but i just wanted to be able to go anywhere and play so i wanted to put it on this laptop.

in game, it lagged the same amount if on High settings and very low settings, rite now i have them on very low, but the problem still exists. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Did a google search and seems to be memory leaking.

Try installing cacheman ---> http://www.outertech.com/en/how-to-speed-up-your-comput..., set a maximum to how much memory League of Legends can use and see if it works. I can't really tell you how much to set it at since I don't play it myself but you could get into a match, see how much memory it is using in the beginning and only let it use 50 ~ 100mb more memory?

thanks a lot ima test it now, hoping this will work! :) 

so wat i did : found out that lol was using 93 mb, so i went to memory managment and changed the max ram of it to 150 mb. and i left the program opened and put it down now going to test.

i dont think thats the problem, but i still get the fps drop... i found out you can cap the fps so it doesnt do that; regularly my fps is around 60 fps and then drops so i tried caping at 30 fps, but still happens. :(
