Graphics Card is Running Slow - 03-23-2011 , 03:12 AM

So about a month ago I was able to run Crysis on high settings at 40fps. Now I cant run it at 5fps.

On my laptop I have an i7 running at 1.7ghz, an NVIDIA 260GTX, 4gigs of 1333mhz ram, and a 320 gig 7200rpm hdd.

I have checked out the common issues: overheating, viruses, fragged hdd, drivers, ect. I know it is not a virus, because it only acts bad when I'm running 3-d graphics.

Does it sound like a hardware or software issue? Should I just reinstall windows and start over?

Check the power settings: right click the battery icon -> Power options -> Change plan settings -> Change advanced power settings. From there ensure that your graphics card isn't set to be in power save mode all the time. Also check that you aren't in the power saver mode.

I have checked that out, and everything checks out. What's strange is that when i unplug my cord it works better than with the power plugged in.

edit: Problem solved.
