help with frame rate issues

#1sonicteam2k1Posted 8/24/2013 4:53:58 PM
I have a laptop and sometimes I get frame rate issues. First I thought it was big picture mode causing the issue but I turned it off and I still get the frame rate problem.

What happens is the frame rate takes a dive for about 30-60 seconds and then returns to normal. This happens in Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed and Alice Madness Returns. Also I get a jumpy frame rate while using big picture mode. But like I said this happens without it as well.

The laptop has...

i7 4700 MQ
GTX 765m
8GB RAM
Windows 7 64bit

I even turned down graphics on low and it still happens. Could this be a driver issue? I have the most up to date driver for the video card.

Could be a virus or something.

This is actually what was happening to me with the bad voltage regulation on my board. The framerate would go to crap for 30 seconds and then jump back to normal due to vcore voltage drops.

Ya, get HWMonitor and check your temps and voltages during gameplay.

what programs I can use to check this? The laptop doesn't feel hot when playing though. That was the first thing I thought about though was maybe it's getting too hot but it never felt hot. I'm on my way out the door, I'll check it out when I get back in.
