I am sorry if this is not the correct forum I should've posted this but I don't believe this is a hardware issue and I really don't feel like reinstalling Windows and formatting because I've done this many times due to Windows 10 having many issues and I've lost and reinstalled my programs one too many times.
Usually I can figure these things out on my own, but right now I have no idea what is causing my problem. I am having low FPS even in games like League of Legends, where uncapped it would stay at around 180 and then randomly for a minute go down to 40. Now, 40 is not a bad number, but when it goes down like that it seriously stutters the whole time to the point where it's unplayable. Games like The Crew, which is rather heavy and ran fine before on 30 FPS now barely runs with 15 all the time. Basically, I know that my laptop can do much better because it did, but only the last few days has it performed awfully on every game. The most intriguing thing is that it's not overheating like many would assume. I've played heavy games at really high temperatures like 95 C without a problem. Now, amazingly, I'm having problems at 82 C (GPU) and 88 C (CPU) while playing The Crew - getting only 15 FPS.
As you can see, super low temperatures in comparison to what I had before yet low FPS..

This picture is a comparison between the graphics test now from a year ago. It seems nothing has changed yet my laptop just refuses to work when I start any game.
