Well, i did a system rating for my Laptop and here is what i got:

http://tinypic.com/r/24cbju1/6

SPECS:
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intel Core i7-3612QM CPU @ 2.10GHz
12.0GB RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4000
Nvidia GeForce GT 630M

I guess this i why i FPS Lag and Slow load in even a low basic graphics game.
So anyone got any solutions for this? As u can see from my specs, i shouldnt have lagg in a low grphics game.

Help would be much appreciated.
Thank You

That's unusually low for your GT 630. My old GT 520 gets 4.9 and it's much worse than a 630. Have you checked the drivers, installed the latest ones and checked its clock?

if i'm not mistaken in windows aero you are using the integrated GPU intel hd4000, that is why on gaming performance you get good results and on windows aero you don't.

Also that windows benchmark is far for trustable, you can test your gpu performance on other softwares like 3d mark.

if you didn't upgraded your drivers already, also that is a good part for improving GPU for gaming performance.

What games do you get FPS lag? be aware that gt 630m is a mid-range notebook gpu, so you will not get great frames on games, but you will be able to play games with low-medium settings at 720p resolution, if you are using a 1080p screen lower the resolution or lower the graphics even more.

well first of all update your gpu drivers to the latest version available for your notebook here:

I have already installed the latests drivers.

Heres the game - http://sf.dfigames.com/download/ (Scroll down and ull see the requirements)

As you can see from the requirements, its low. My laptop could run the game smoothly. However, im experiencing FPS Lags and slow loading.

I have tried updating it to the latest but it says its not compatible. But, i tried updating to a BETA version instead and it works. But the lag and slow loads still exists.

I can't check the game right now, but by what i have searched it is an online mmofps, probably the low loading times are related to the internet connection speed, and also maybe the game is slow? have you considered that? sometimes games are very poor in graphics and looks like the game is lagging...

If the game isn't like that and you are experiencing lag, maybe your Optimus is not activating the dedicated GPU on that game, consider doing tests on other games...

I have tried playing other games such as CS:GO and L4D2, i experience FPS Lag and slow loads too.

I have a good internet speed and the game, Special Force, isnt a laggy game. I got a shtty desktop and i can run it smoothly.

well i would try reinstalling latest driver version with a CLEAN INSTALL.

try the latest BETA driver for your notebook

http://www.geforce.com/drivers/beta-legacy

go in custom install options and check the box "Clean Install".

http://www.nvidia.com/object/optimus_technology.html

Basically, it is an nvidia technology, that disables the dedicated GPU when you are on windows to decrease the battery use. and it enables the GPU when you enter in a game or a software that will make use of it.

Because it's a laptop with a low end graphic card.

It looks like your belief is misplaced.

Well look at this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExPVcFwZTHM

The user is using the same Graphics card. But his playing fine. He has an i7 processor like i did. So what can be possibly wrong with mine?
