Why does my computer freeze when videos or games are running?
So I have had great experiences so far with my MacBook Pro. It has been very reliable and more importantly my computer has always been running smoothly. However, recently there have been a few problems with my macbook and I am having trouble shooting the problem.
Whenever I play a video on Youtube or even on VLC (sometimes), my computer seems to lag significantly. In addition, my computer has begun to heat up unusually where the power cord is. Furthermore, I'm not sure how relevant this is, but when I am playing League of Legends my FPS (Frames per Second) used to be around 40~50, but now it is in the 1~10 range. Even when I am surfing the web on Facebook or using iMessages, my computer has begun to freeze or lag incredibly.
Any and all comments/diagnosis/suggestions are appreciated! Thank you guys!
Is this a good question?
