Frame rate drop every minute or so?
So im not sure where else to go with this, I found this forum maybe you guys can help.
I have built desktops in the past, I feel I know most of the technical stuff when it comes to desktops...but laptops are a whole different story.
I stupidly purchased a dell. I never realized how bad of an idea that would be. WORST COMPANY EVER...or at least from what I have experienced. This laptop has been replaced 3 times, and has had over 25 repairs in the past year and a half. Its absolutely horrible. This is a $2000 Dell XPS L502x. 16gb DDR5 ram, i7 3rd gen quad processor @ 2.20ghz, nvidia gt 640m 1tb hdd etc...basically its a good laptop. I should be able to run games on medium settings at least right?
Well my laptop was just replaced, I literally just recieved it a couple days ago. Let me give an example of what happens.
The game Borderlands 2. If I put the graphics on medium and cap the FPS at 30...it runs fine. If I put the graphics on medium and let the FPS option be Smooth 20-60fps or just straight up cap at 50 or 60fps...the game runs absolutely beautiful. Smooth and just awesome...for about a minute. It runs great...than out of nowhere the frame rate drops drastically. Like to 5fps maybe. It does this every minute. It runs amazing, than frame rate drops. It does this in everything. The problem doesnt happen when I cap it at 30fps, but when I put it at anything else but that I get the same problem. In other games (skyrim, rift) the same thing happens except neither of them have a frame rate cap option so it just constantly does that every minute.
Is this a setting? Is there anything I can do to fix this? I will give any and all information about the laptop but this is just frustrating at this point. Its a $2000 laptop. The games run fine but its like every minute the frame rate just drops drastically. If you have any suggestions or anything let me know. I just wnat this problem fixed.
Never buy a dell product.
