Hi all, 

So as the title states: No matter what I do, I'm ALWAYS getting random FPS drops in games.

On CSGO on even the LOWEST settings my fps will drastically drop randomly and out of nowhere. 
When playing Warframe, not so much. 
When playing BF4, same thing.

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series laptop
Windows 10
Processor: Intel i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz  2.60 GHZ   - 4 cores
16.0GB of RAM
AMD Radeon R7 M260 Graphics card 

I have switchable graphics from the Intel graphics card and the AMD one, but I've already updated my drivers and configured my AMD card to kick up to High Performance on all my games.
Any and ALL help is appreciated - bleep is really quite annoying....I've tried completely wiping and reinstalling Windows and everything like 3 times now and still face the same issues.

This should always be a last resort option because (1) it rarely works and (2) if it does work, you don't learn what the problem is to prevent recurrence.


My first thought (especially with notebooks) is heat. I use and recommend CoreTemp to monitor my CPU temps. I also like Speccy (from the makers of CCleaner) which provides much more "System Information" and now has a system tray applet too. HWiNFO64 is also very (if not too) informative. You might also make sure the interior and vents are clean of heat trapping dust.
