First time posting here and I am literally not a very pc/tech guy. I don't know what's good and what's awesome when it comes to PC parts. I also don't play with my settings because I'm pretty sure I don't know how to fix it.
So here's my my laptop details
Model: ASUS GL502VM
Processor: i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80Ghz
Ram: 8192 MB or 8GB
GPU: Geforce GTX1060
OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit - OS is installed in a 128(?)GB SSD.
I bought this laptop October last year. As you can tell, I bought it specifically for gaming. And please correct me if I'm wrong. This is mid-high range rig, isn't it? I'm supposed to be able to play games at high settings.
Now, I have the following issues. It's not performing well lately.
1.) My start up from a coldboot takes 5-10mins which it didn't do before (which only takes a few minutes). Bios booting takes just a few seconds but start up takes a while. Please do take note that I have disable all programs that has the "Run on Start up" option.
2.) My temps go high as 90 degrees celsius. I mean even just for Dota2 with high settings. So now, I only put my settings to mid-low. I mean how could this be when I have a freaking GTX1060 for just Dota2. I'm using Dota2 as reference since it's one of the old games that I'm sure that this kind of rig can easily play in high settings. That being said, my temps for other games is also as high. Please take note that I usually don't play with Vsync and anti-aliasing for almost all games.
Even playing Darksiders Warmastered would give me 70 degrees celsius.
3.) I don't understand why my memory would go so high on simple games. I mean 8gb RAM is decent for games that don't run on high settings. Please do take note that I said this because I can't play on high settings because of my temps. AND THAT BEING SAID, why the hell is it using 61% or above memory usage???
Recently, I tried playing Dauntless and the minimum requirements for the game is:
CPU: i5 SandyBridge
CPU SPEED: Info
RAM: 4 GB
OS: Windows 7 DX11 Support
VIDEO CARD: 660Ti (DX11)
I can't play this game because it's crashing with a message saying that I don't have enough memory.
4.) Would you recommend for me to reformat my laptop and get windows7 if the OS is the issue?
Please let me know if you need any more information (also please let me know how to get the information you need from me).
