Firstly, I'm new to the forum so..hey
Secondly (and most importantly), I'm having a few issues with my new laptop Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG.
When I first got the laptop (Friday), I did a clean OS install. The Bloatware is a royal pain and slows down any mid level PC/Laptop. I then installed all of the drivers directly from the Acer and nvidia website...all is looking well.
I then installed Skyrim. I set the quality to high at native res (1366x768) and was getting around 50-60FPS (CoD MW3 was getting around 70 fps on high settings). I was thrilled to see that my little £500 laptop was running Skyrim on high settings. Anyway...I digress. I booted the laptop up earlier and I'm now unable to play the game on high and get around 20FPS on low settings.
What the frick is going on? I've checked nvidia control panel to make sure I'm using the GPU instead of the graphics accelerator when playing games. Do you think it has something to do with running on battery and not being connected to the mains? I'm pulling my hair out and concerned that...*wipes away tears* the GPU has kicked the bucket.
Any advice is GREATLY appreciated.
