    Hello I have a
    Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop, 15" 144Hz Refresh Rate,
    Intel 6-Core i7-8750H
    GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
    16GB Ram

    And after I updated windows my gpu is now idle while I game causing massive lag spikes.

    1. What's the game?
    2. Given that the Nvidia drivers are properly installed, make sure the game appears in the "manage 3D settings" with "high performance" set
    3. Is the laptop connected to the AC?
