I just purchased a new laptop (http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-IdeaPad-Y510p-Laptop-Computer/dp/B00EKK0Q6Y) and I seem to be having nothing but trouble so far. The major issue at hand is that my graphics card seems to be messing up...I think. I know the drivers are up to date cuz I check the Nvidia Geforce experience program and it said they were up to date. The problem is when I go to play my games I never know what I'm gonna get. Sometimes I can run them on ultra settings and they will play as smooth as silk and other times I'll boot up a game and it runs at about 2fps. I don't know what is causing this. I have even had a tech remote in and clean up the laptop from any apparent infections. So I know it's squeaky clean.

Has anyone else had experiences similar to this? And is there a simple fix? Thanks guys!

This is why SLI'ing 2 video cards (the weakest gaming level card available also) in a laptop is a bad idea.
Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 105

NVIDIA Dual SLI GT 750M


Is that saying it has 4 GPU's? Or, much more likely, Amazon is dumb.

That's a pretty standard description, to differentiate it from tri- and quad-SLI.

Haha, yeah after 30 min online with a tech I discovered this. I felt stupid. At least it was a quick fix though.
