I've had this laptop for almost a year now and recently all games I've been playing seem to drop in fps quite significantly at random stages. Not even high end games but even games like World of Warcraft or Starcraft 2 give me frame drops when the graphic settings are not even close to maxed out. I have reformatted my PC and i have installed all the latest drivers.

Is there anything that i might be missing out on? I have tried to clean my laptop as well but it doesn't seem to have helped.


Edit: I forgot to mention that it also randomly shuts down while playing a game which would suggest a problem with the temperature but i have already tried to clean it. It occasionally just starts to jam and shut down and other times it jams for a few seconds but goes back to normal after 5-6 seconds.

The few seconds sounds like a latency (?driver?) problem, while the shutdown is definitely due to overheating. Make sure that you really clean out your GPU.
