Yesterday every game ran just fine, now today I try and play any of my games, and they all drop in framerate, and are really unplayable......Nothing new has been downloaded, I have a firewall, and virus protection & no viruses showed up when I did a scan, I have plenty of HDD space, RAM, etc.... whats going on??I see nothing new running in the background with task manager....

You can't think of any changes that could be causing that?

Check device manager and make sure you aren't using integrated graphics. Would help if you listed the AV you use, as some can just be complete garbage. Run a full scan with Malware-bytes.

Make sure your laptop is plugged in. The GPU automatically downclocks when not plugged in to the wall.

Monitor your temps, voltages, CPU, and GPU usage to narrow down the problem.

Nope, no new drivers, and nope, nothing at all was/has been made....I'm running MB right now to see, but nothing was shown as a threat on AVG, also it's in my sig for the specs....

Indeed. Let's cut the crap and just go straight to source of the problem.

You're being polite, as usual. We all know what the problem is, see TimePharaoh's post.
