    So recently (problem just started about 2 months ago),my laptop has been experiencing extremely low FPS while gaming (WoW), spikes between 10-25 FPS with me already running the game on the lowest possible quality with ALL possible background applications closed. I've tried all possible solutions including running anti-virus/malware scans, CCleaner, Defraggler, updating all drivers, etc. EVERYTHING SHORT of a system wipe which I feel is not something I want to do unless all other means have been expired. I have run some tests and know that this is not a connection issue.

    Computer Specs:
    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700HQ CPU @ 2.40GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3
    Processor Count: 8
    RAM: 8075 Mb
    Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600, 1024 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: 279 GB (41 GB Free); D: 398 GB (194 GB Free);
    Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC., G56JR
    Antivirus: Avira Antivirus, Disabled

    I also have GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M
    Hard drive capacity are also no where near full.

    I can take the laptop back to ASUS for a system wipe but it is not something that I want to do because they would require 5 working days as well as needing to back-up everything on my laptop.

    Are there any possible explanation to why this problem occurs? Perhaps some settings tuned wrong or some other hardware issues?

    A problem could be that you have too much stuff installed on your PC. As you run the game there could be too many processes in the background running and slowing down your game. Also, when was the last time you have defragmented your PC? If it has an HDD it could really help, with SSDs, though, defragmentation can only slow down the computer. And also setting the high performance does help, but you need to also manage your graphics card controls as well. Since I have an Nvidia, I don't quite know how to manage your AMD, but I did have to set the Nvidia power managment to maximum performance as well. Do you clean out all the software that you don't use? If it's something that you tell yourself you might need some day, then it probably shouldn't be there at all. And do you clean out all the junk like Temp files? You should as it does help. Heck even a game booster can help with lag sometimes. And last, but not least, is also overclocking. If you're new to this, I don't really suggest it, but you can learn about it and also use programs like MSI Kombustor or even dedicating more RAM to a game if needed, although many games only require 2GB of RAM.
