No matter what game I play, or what setting I play with, I always get an unplayable fps on the Toshiba Qosmio X870.

Specs:

My gtx is updated, so is my Bios.
I'm running out of ideas and any help would be really appreciated.

Have you gone into the nVidia control panel and/or BIOS to make sure that your set to use your dedicated card to play games and not the integrated Intel graphics? I had this issue too, and this change made a huge difference.

Format you laptop and uninstall all gaming software. Run anti virus and install that software again. Then try to play  games. It will definitely help you.

Hold on there cowboy, formating a personal computer should always be a last choice. Most common people have tons of data saved on their man hard drive and have no way to back it all up. And even then there's just the drag of reinstalling everything.

 

Also there's a chance that won't change a thing as it might be hardware related, or related to a specific software he needs.
