Hey guys, 

My Asus gaming laptop has been having trouble running games lately. About a week ago everything was running smoothly, but now most of my games are having fps issues. 

For example: The game Dark Souls was running fine about a week ago but now its running at such low fps that the game is unplayable. Sleeping Dogs had not as dramatic issues, but I had to drop the graphics setting to low for it to have decent FPS. Games like Torchlight 2 and even the Binding of Issac had frame rate issues. I have been running these games on my External Hard drive and I am unable to download them onto the C drive because it is nearly full. Anyone have any Ideas?

Thanks!

The game Hitman absolution seems to be running fine. Should I just try re-installing the games?

Have you tried updating the drivers? Re-downloading the games would be a possibility. You said you have been running the games off of an external hard drive. Have you always been running them like this or just recent because of some other issue. I would maybe invest in a larger hd to save all the games you normally play or maybe an ssd. I would first update video driver, then clear up some space on hd, and make sure that there is no virus on it just to be on the safe side. I would reinstall game and see how it plays. Another thought came to mind is internet speeds. I hope this helps

Asus gaming laptop? G53 or G73? I got G53 :) well reinstall everything, probably you need delete everything. Maybe it's a virus or malware? Or maybe you need more space on your hard drive.
