Heya!

 

So i have  a gaming laptop: http://shop.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/lenovo/y-series/y510p/#tab-tech_specs and i wanted to know what can i do to SAFELY improve performance. If you have any experience how to do it please do tell. Also what is the best option in my case should i use CPE or GPU in my Nvidia settings for Physix? Oh and would it be possible to overclock my proccesor and would it be worth?

Thanks! :)

The link you posted doesn't tell us the specifics on what you have in your laptop, just what you could get in it. If you could, follow these instructions on posting a speccy snapshot of your laptop so we can see exactly what it is you have. There isn't whole lot you can do with a laptop, but once I see what you have I can give some suggestions.

If it's a laptop and you want more performance, turn down the settings.

Oh and can you give me some good antivirus that needs low resources?

Thanks :P

I know that BitDefender is not a resource hog. The free version is quite good, in my opinion.

Sorry I haven't responded until now.

 

Yes, that speccy is what I needed! I just wanted to see what RAM you had, etc. etc. You have 8GB installed, so upping that probably won't help you much. The best thing you can do to help performance is get an SSD if you don't have one. Install the OS on that and boot times are quicker. Install any programs on it and the load times will be a bit quicker as well.

 

I also second BitDefender. It is pretty good AV.

 

As far as just overall performance, clean up anything you don't need to get rid of the clutter. Defragging could also help you out (just DON'T defrag if you have an SSD).

I have bitdefender running and it says that im using win 8 is this gonna be a problem? I have win 10.

Oh and one more thing. I see a lot of people saying that its very good to increase paging? So what would you recommend for the initial and maximum paging in my case? I want it to have it set for the best perfrmance.

BitDefender saying you are running Windows 8 could just be a bug. I would think it is fine and will probably clear up in future updates.

 

I do not know enough about Windows paging to help out with that one. Someone may come along that knows more than I do on it. You can do some googeling and see what you find about it, there are probably some good articles out there on Windows paging.

It's a bug, BitDefender recently started supporting Windows 10.

It's a gaming laptop, defragging will not help gaming performance. Deleting files will also not help performance. An SSD makes a big difference in load time, not so much with framerate.

Yeah but i only care about fps not load time, i dont care if the game loads 1s or 10min if that means the performance is good :P

Yes, you are correct it will only help overall performance.

 

NeonCandy, not much you can do to improve FPS with a laptop. It is what it is. You can turn down settings to get better frame times, but that is about it.

Because NeonCandy has started a new topic, which I have just moved to the Win 10 section since this appears to be a Windows problem, to avoid confusion this topic is now closed.

 

The link in the OP's last post will take you to the currently active one.
