Lately my computer has been acting up pretty strange. I have issues playing League of Legends - normally I can play on medium graphics and some high settings, but ever since about mid June I have needed to play on low graphics settings and my fps still sometimes lags my computer when playing. 

 

My laptop will also freeze usually once a day(when I leave computer running and I'm away for an extended period of time - 5+ hours?)

 

Could my hard dive be failing or is my graphics card the reason for my issue? I'm completely lost.

For starters, you should definitely update your graphics drivers (unless you forgot to mention it). And you should defragment your drive too to be on the safe side. :)

 

This may also be due to high temperatures.

Did all of that, nothing works.

How old is your computer? Even if it is just a few months old, you'd be surprised how much dust can collect inside it. Blow it all out with a can of compressed air or a hair dryer and then restart the machine. Also try defragmenting the hard drive.

 

About your computer being slow after an extended period on~ that may be because your RAM (temp storage) is filled up and you need to restart the computer. :)

4 years old.

 

I did that a week ago. 

 

Computer isn't slow. The game League of Legends has low FPS issues, which in turn goes towards the graphics card or hard drive..

EDIT: Turned off the hard disk to never. So that way my hard disk is running all the time. Hopefully that fixes the computer freezing issue?

Did you check real time the temperatures as this is a laptop? I see you have Iobit installed, can you remove this software as it is not recommended especially here @ BC. :thumbup2:

The power settings plan for hard disk is not related to the freezing issue since your computer is active :) and not on idle. Remove Iobit also just in case.

Defrag your hard drive and update your drivers, also buy a cooling pad, it can help.
