I would check your memory first, If you can increase it.

You also may not have enough free space on your HD. Use the HD tools Windows has to clean things up.

Actually they need a whole new Rig. This is designed for novice gamers, with modest gaming capabilities. But, yes get the background processes & programs down to free memory. I always run a gaming rig with a stripped down operating system to free up resources. However, this does have 2 graphic processors: An Intel 4600 and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU with 2GB of VRAM. It could just be a setting in the operating system or graphics driver software not kicking in the Nvidia.

Problems that plague gaming laptops include overheating, programs running in the background, and the graphics card not running at the required speed (usually in MHz) for the game you are playing.

In order to avoid overheating problems, you may want to replace the fan(s) with better performing ones or give your laptop a rest and let it cool down.

In order to prevent programs from starting up while you are playing a game, manually go into the program (settings) and either turn off the program or schedule it to run while you aren't gaming.

In order to see if your graphics card is causing lag, look at the game requirements on the original packaging. Compare to the one running in your laptop. If the graphics card you have doesn't perform at the recommended capacity then you may need a better graphics card.

@Kevin, You're spot on the performance issues many newer games require. Sadly, there is not much you can do to make a laptop into a gaming box. It is what it is.

I have had the same issue. it's not the GPU. it's the CPU's being throttled due to overheating.

there's a membrane on the back panel that's there to filter out the dust in the air. after using the laptop for a few months it became blocked with all the dust and was practically impossible to clean.

i just removed it today and already idle temp is 14-18 degrees lower.

during playing a game even like Dota2, 10-15 minutes into it CPU reached 100 degrees. so naturally, the speed is throttled so that it doesn't burn out.

i'll try the game later and see if i have any improvement

I have tested this and it reduced my max temp from 100 = throttle to 72. screw that terrible dust screen and throw it out. just dust out your laptop every now and then with compressed air and bob's your uncle
