Note: for many years old graphics cards or new laptops to upgrade the graphics card drivers may not be installed, so there is no need to upgrade if they can be used normally. On the contrary, the graphics card must be upgraded during the warranty period. If the new driver is not used, it means that the graphics card may have quality problems.

Step 2, Ensure that the system is upgraded to win10-64 bit.

Step 3, The CPU is above i3 or equivalent.

Step 4, Is the memory more than 8G, because many games now require more than 8G memory, 16G memory is the best.

Step 5,Is the hard drive an SSD? If the game loads slowly and the map is changed slowly, everyone is waiting for you at the start of LOL, which is basically a mechanical hard drive problem.

Step 6, Check the graphics card is an independent graphics card or not,The current standard display is 23-24 inches, 1080P resolution. If your graphics device does not match your screen settings, and it is normal to freeze and drop frames, because the higher the resolution, the higher the requirements for the graphics card.

Note:Connecting the power adapter and using the battery alone are two different working modes. When using only the battery, the machine is in the energy-saving and battery-protected state, and the CPU and GPU will be reduced in frequency, so that there will be a freeze when running large games.

Test 7,Deactivate Game Mode

Step 1, Go to the setting menu,click gaming.

Note: Make sure you reboot after disabling the Game Mode so that the changes take effect. This, according to some gamers, is a quick fix that has been able to solve the stuttering for a lot of players.

The game mode is designed to enhance the PC's game functions by optimizing CPU and GPU resources. Once this function is activated, the game will be prioritized over the allocation of other applications. However, "Game Mode" has recently been the opposite-it is said that it does not improve the gaming experience, but makes the player's life more difficult. Complaints from PC owners claim that these issues will affect computers running on AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. Identify PCs with Radeon RX 5700 XT, RX 570, RX 480 and R9 290, as well as NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980 and GTX 1080 Ti.
