hey guys I just bought a g46 today and I set it up and I tried to play metro2033 and I got super lag so I turned down the settings a lot but still super lag. So maybe I thought it was the game so I tried Gmod but still lag but not as much.
So can anyone help me? thanks.

Did you try to update to the latest GeForce drivers?
Is your laptop plugged in the power grid?
Are you running any other intensive software on the computer while playing?

Plugged in is exactly what I meant.
For the latest driver updates head to nvidia.com and search for the drivers that are for your graphics card, its easy.
Try that and see if it works.

Hello nave4121.
G46vw runs by default in battery saving mode, which means you are using the Intel graphics chipset instead the Nvidia.
To make sure you are running in performance mode, press the shortcut Fn + Space bar and switch it to performance mode. In addition, make sure to have your laptop connected to power source, because even you use the performance mode, if the laptop is running on batteries, it will not squeeze all the horse power from the graphic chipset.
I experienced a similar issue with Skyrim. As soon as I plugged in the laptop to power source, I noticed a big difference with the game frames.
Hope this helps.
