I bought an Asus g60vx for gaming/art work on the go.
CPU: Intel P7450 2.13 ghz 3MB L2 Cache
Memory: 4 GB PC-6400 Hyundai (2X2) at 800Mhz
HDD: 320gb 7200rpm HD
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GTX 260M 1GB
OS: Windows 7 premium
While the original intend was to use it on the go it ran games better than my old desktop, so it quickly because my replacement. I would easily get 30+ fps at max settings in heavy raids in Wow. Recently Frames drop to probably 2 fps on the laptop. I move up the the desk top and I'm probably around 15~20 fps.
I've used this gamebooster app that turns off unnecessary processes and even created a batch file to kick off the games with high priority and turned down the video settings to the lowest but none of this has helped.
I know what this laptop is capable of. Somewhere along the lines this thing got bogged down. What steps should I take? Thanks!
How long ago did you purchase your laptop? Did you do anything major before the frame rate dropped so drastically? Have you defragged your computer recently? Have you run a full virus scan recently? What about a spyware scan?
Maybe your GPU's just worn down a bit, but that usually takes a while to happen. I've gamed a lot on my laptop for the past 5 years but the GPU's outlasted the display so far (3 lines and counting!).
Thanks for the reply lotri. The laptop top itself is only a few months old. I'd say November. I defragged the hard drive last night, however the last time it was defragged was December. Virus and spyware scanned last night as well. I'm pretty sure they ran clean as well. I'll test it out tonight. thanks again
"While the original intention was to use it on-the-go, my laptop ran games better than my old desktop did. Therefore, it soon replaced my desktop."
Have you tried contacting Asus, since you're still under warranty
EDIT: Do you know what temperatures your laptop is running at? If not, get a program that can tell you. (I can't think of one off the top of my head - the one I use is specifically for Dell computers). Have you checked your driver? When/if you update, make sure you use the LAPTOP driver for the GTX 260.

I'm still trying to make sense of this sentence.....
Yes, the sentence should have read as lotri corrected. Being born and raised in Pennsylvania, I sometimes not speak english so good.
Thank you very much for contribution to this thread sir. Your comment was clearly very helpful in diagnosing my laptop and in no way could ever be misconstrued as rude. Thanks again!
I did update the driver with the laptop driver. I'm thinking I just installed something stupid. Along with poor grammar, Pennsylvanians are also prone to installing dumb stuff on their computers! I'll contact asus if I have to, but for now I'll monitor temperatures and uninstall apps that I don't use. Thanks again
