CSGO 30-50 fps ALL LOW settings on mid-high end laptop

Q: CSGO 30-50 fps ALL LOW settings on mid-high end laptop

Ive been getting 30-50 fps while playing csgo with the lowest possible settings on my laptop

i7 6500U, turbo @ 3.4ghz
8GB ram
gtx 940m
windows 10

Pretty sure i should be getting fps in the range of the hundreds with these specs. Really confused why this is happening. Dont have any other games really, except for crossfire in which i get 200 on all low settings

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)



I need help in choosing the best setting for CSGO, to play with high performance without fps drop. The game's requirements are :

OS: Windows? 7/Vista/XPProcessor: Intel? Core? 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom? X3 8750 processor or betterMemory: 1GB XP / 2GB VistaHard Disk Space: At least 7.6GB of SpaceVideo Card: Video card must be 256 MB or more and should be a DirectX 9-compatible with support for Pixel Shader 3.0

It works on Windows 8 and I know my laptop specs is not powerful enough to run in high settings so I reduce to the lowest possible. Works fine but some stuttering of repetitive audio and frequent fps drop. I'm running in 1024x768 resolution. Need some explanation for :-
Multicore renderingMultisampling Anti-Aliasing modeTexture Filtering modeFXAA Anti-AliasingWait for Vertical Sync

Is my settings right? Need some tips for my laptop settings to run smoothly for this game.

A:CSGO Settings - Performance


Multicore rendering.
It just lets you use both cores in a CPU to boost performance.

Multisampling Anti-Aliasing mode
a technique used in computer graphics to improve image quality.

Texture Filtering mode
texture filtering or texture smoothing is the method used to determine the texture color for a texture mapped pixel, using the colors of nearbytexels (pixels of the texture)

FXAA Anti-Aliasing
Smooth the edges.

Vertical Sync
Keep a track of FPS. ( I keep it off in all the games. )

Upgrade the drivers for your Intel card and then check the gameplay.

This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted.

1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues.
2. I reformatted and everything was normal..but then after installing these few programs, the problem began again.

A:Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)

Hello. First off, having utorrent effectively craps you out on this forum since it has a bad rep. Suggest you remove it and come back, start a new thread. That said, if you're familiar with Task Manager, check the CPU percentage on the processes tab (click CPU column to sort). This may help pinpoint which app(s) are whack.

I have my popup blocker set on high. I enter the sites that I want to allow pop-ups.
However, there are 2 sites that always appear as allowed sites even though I never entered them.
Adnet-plus and firstgoodssearch. I remove them on a daily basis and they reappear on a daily basis.
I have run S&D, Adaware, Norton etc and I am virus/malware free (I think).

How can I stop these 2 sites from getting through to the allowed popup window.

Thanks, Ken

One of my clients is legally blind, so he needs an extremely high DPI in order to use his machine. However, When DPI under screen resolution is raised to 255%, the right two inches or so on every page is cut off only in Windows Live Mail.

Steps I've taken:
Printing from different programs - normal.
Printing from IE (which defines WL Mail margins and other settings) - normal.
Different machine with same printer - prints normally.
Different machine, same printer, change DPI to 255% - Windows Live cuts off page.
Different machine, different printer - prints normally.
Different machine, different printer, change DPI to 255% - Windows Live cuts off page.
The main problems I have are: one, I don't want to have him change programs since he's legally blind, and two, we can't decrease his DPI for the same reason.
Is there some underlying cause to this, and something that can be rectified without causing a major change for my client?

Dear TSG and friends: I run two computers, a desktop and a laptop. Both run on Windows XP. I use the laptop on my home wireless network, with the desktop as the connection to my cable internet service. That service gives me about 1Mb/sec bandwidth. The desktop has a dual-core 2.2GB/sec AMD Athlon. The laptop has a single core, Intel Celeron 2.2GB/sec.

On watching Youtube video streams on the desktop, I can most often set the quality down to 240p and avoid interruptions in the streaming.

On watching the same stream on my laptop (the desktop is hibernating) from my wireless home network, the choices offered me by the settings button are only as low as 480p.

Question: Why does the settings button on the laptop's screen not offer me the 240p choice? Can I fix that? I often wish to watch a stream in my living-room, but the interruptions are discouraging at 480p.

A:Settings Quality Choices too High for me

You should be able to see the same resolution options... I'm not too sure why you can't.

Just out of interest, since you are on a cable internet service, you shouldn't be having bandwidth/lagging issues. What speeds are you paying for? 1MB?

I'm using the newest version of Firefox and not using my IE6 at all.

The only time I'd use it would be to do Windows Update. (I have an XP-SP2 laptop.)

I thought I read it's good (or doesn't hurt) to set everything in IE to high security settings if you're not using it. (And I seem to recall there were some custom settings it was best to do...?)

So I was wondering what those settings were and what the best way to set IE security is if I'm only using Firefox...?

(I guess I'd need to change the settings each time I do Windows Update though, right? Then put them back to the high settings?)

I have 790MB of resource usage available. What is wrong here? I had the Vsync turned off and on, but still the GPU freezes. Could the problem be the texture filter quality?
CPU: Intel? Core?2 Quad Processor Q9400 at 2.66 GHz
GPU: GTX 770 2GB DirectCU II
Memory RAM: 6GB
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
PSU: Corsair CX750M

A:Why does my GTX 770 freeze when I play GTA IV at high settings?

Provide more details:How long after you start does it freeze?
Do any other games freeze? Try running Crysis or something.
What makes you think it's the GPU and not some other issue?
What happens when you run the game on low settings?
What version of the graphics driver are you using? Current WHQL version is 337.91.
What version of GTA IV are you playing? Is it up to date?

Based on your very limited information, here are some things to try:Pull the cover off and get all the dust out of the entire case using compressed air.
Put GTA IV in Windowed mode and watch the case temp gauges.
If the temp gauges run hot (say 50 deg C) take the case cover off, point a large fan at the box and turn it on full power. Run the game. See if the temperature goes down. Does the game run smoothly?
If heat is the issue, and dusting doesn't fix it, go buy more case fans, screw them in, and connect them to either fan mounts on the motherboard or to the power supply. Bottom and front fans bring air in. Top, back, and side fans push hot air out of the case. Make sure your cables are tied together neatly so they don't interrupt airflow. Also, get some magnetic fan dust covers to keep the inside of the machine cool.
Update your graphics driver.
Make sure your motherboard BIOS is also up to date.
Before starting GTA, run task manager and make sure to kill any unnecessary processes that might be conflicting with it. You may even wish to turn off your antivirus if you're running one.

So i was looking around in my monitoring software and it said that there's a possibility my AGP and Mem are overstressed. The current voltages are::
CPU: 1.5V
Mem: 2.6V
AGP: 1.5V

I havent ever made changes to the voltages because frankly i dont know enough to feel safe screwing with it. Is this something thats best left alone? or should i dig deeper and perhaps try tinkering with the voltage settings

If you dont know what you are doing then I would suggest you dont play around with your mobo settings. We could do with a little more info on your system, like mobo, processor, o/s, and any overclocked settings.

ensure you have all the latest device drivers and game patches. problems as you described are often caused by one or more parts of a computer overheating during demanding apps. do you have a way of monitoring your cpu, chipset, or gpu temps? download and run prime95. run a turture test using the "in place fft" options and reply if the box ran successfully for about half an hour.

Hi everyone,
I've used WindowBlinds extensively in the past, but now with the color change options of Aero, I really don't have a need for it anymore. The problem is, however, that I can't get some things dark like before. For example, Start Menu, folder backgrounds, and the page in Word are all white and I'd like to make them high-contrast while keeping Aero. Does anyone know a way to do this? I've tried experimenting with the advanced appearance settings without result. On a side note, I've also been unable to change the logon screen, even with all the tools and suggestions I've found on this forum.

Hi there,I'm having all sorts of issues with the Lenovo Settings app on my X1 Carbon:- it's terribly slow, not a single action that doesn't show some sort of spinning wheel. - after launch it takes approximately 20 seconds to "update", until then it shows wrong data. - sometimes it shows wrong data even after some time. I mean it shows things switched on or off, which I definitely set differently.- sometimes it recognizes my 45W power supply as the original (saying "45W Power supply connected), sometimes not.- depending on above, it sometimes "thinks" I'm in an airplane, hence slows down the charging and shows a nasty airplane icon in the tray- almost all the time the app is active the fans are blowing full speed (I wrote in the title that the CPU load is high, I actually haven't verified that, I only noticed the fans revving up)- sometimes some of the power settings (airplane mode) aren't shown at all. I first have to click a few other buttons and then return to the power settings. I would have gotten rid of the app, but I find the 80% charging limit pretty useful and also the airplane mode.Unfortunately the Lenovo support doesn't even know what I'm talking about. They think airplane mode refers to WIFI and Bluetooth being switched off, like on the cellphone. They didn't believe me until I read on the phone what their own app says.  I tried to re-install the app and to un and/or re-install some of the services the Lenovo page recommends for my notebo...

On Christmas day (of all days, after receiving all the new games...) my computer died. After doing a little bit of backyard work with a multimeter, I decided that it was probably a PSU issue, as it was barely putting out 0.03 volts through the 12 volt pins. I went and purchased a new PSU, that was 100W bigger (750W) than the previous one, as well as some more memory sticks to put into the motherboard (why not?).

After putting the new PSU in and still not being able to even boot the PC, we took it in for repairs where we were informed of a faulty motherboard, and suggested purchasing an upgrade to replace it (so much for the memory sticks...). We purchased the upgraded motherboard, processor, memory and left the guy to his devices. He called us back two days later and let us know that the current PSU (the 750W one) wouldn't be enough to run the computer and recommended upgraded to a 950W PSU. We went with it and waited.

He called us back later that day, letting us know that everything had been fitted and that we can come pick it up. We went in and informed us that he had to reinstall windows, which meant I lost basically all my data on my C drive (my SSD), but he had backed it up. Yep. Cool. Came home and plugged the machine in. After almost a week, after the crash on Christmas day, of not being able to play anything, I installed Assassin's Creed 3, and tried to pick up where I left off, obviously Uplay didn't save my progress, so I was thrown back t...

First off, let me say that this problem may not be Windows 10 exclusive, but it happened to me in Windows 10 (I haven't tried in Windows 7 yet), and that is the reason I am making my post here.

I've been running the Windows 10 Technical Preview for about a week on build 10130. My problem started two days ago, when playing a competitive match on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. My ping will be low (under 50 most of the time) and then randomly jump up to the 200 range for no reason (it stays at 200 for barely a second, but is still very distracting). This problem has occurred on every server I have played on since that day (community and Valve official).


(I made it terrible quality for a smaller filesize, therefore becoming a faster upload)

Things I've tried:
Restarting my PC
Restarting my router
Connecting over WiFi
Connecting over Ethernet
Resetting my router
Resetting my network adapter settings

Has this/does this happen to anyone else, and does anyone know of a fix (I've tried google, but nothing I found helped).

Lately when I play CSGO, at certain times, my fps went down from 120 to 40fps.

When I'm at 120 fps, my cpu speed goes to maximum at 2.4 to 2.7 Ghz.
When I'm at 40 fps, my cpu speed goes to its default which is 1.8 Ghz.

I wonder why this happen sometimes. I can't even play properly at 40 fps and I don't know why my cpu speed goes lower to 1.8 Ghz. Other games are not like this. But my main game is CSGO so I need this to be fixed and stay constant at 2.4 to 2.7 Ghz. Please help.

My laptop CPU speed is 1.8 Ghz but it has a TurboBoost feature which can go up to 2.4 Ghz, maximum I notice is 3.0 Ghz but rarely, only up to 2.4 or 2.7 Ghz

A:CSGO Fps and CPU speed drop

Overheating possibly? Sounds like it could be throttling the CPU due to overheating.

Hi, I removed all parts for dust cleaning, and now when I open CSGO it goes to BSOD. I really believe it is a GPU problem, is there a way to bypass that?
PS.: I do play other games, but only crashes when I open CSGO.
PSS.: Is there a way trick windows to think that all fans are at full speed in my gpu?
PSS.: I all drivers are update

I installed a new monitor and problem starts when "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" issue constantly appears. So I updated my AMD Catalyst Control Center and the issue stopped. I tried playing a game (CSGO), then after a few minutes, BSOD occurs. Everytime i start windows normally, after a few minutes, BSOD will happen. I uninstalled my AMD CCC (including the display driver) then BSOD stopped. But when i reinstalled my everything, BSOD happens again and again. Need Help Thanks!

I've had this build for over a year and have been playing both CSGO and GTA with no problems for quite a while. The first BSOD came whilst using the shadow play feature that Nvidia offers. I turned shadow play off and did a fresh install of Nvidia Experience and updated the drivers for my GPU (Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 ti). This seemed to work for about a a day or two and then I had another BSOD. Since then I have been experiencing BSOD irregularly. Sometimes I can play any game for hours with no problem, other times I have BSOD as soon as I start the game up. I've checked for memory errors, updated the GPU driver, scanned for malware and I'm still at a loss. Would greatly appreciate any insight. Thank you

So I have this processor amd phenom 9100e quad core 1.8 ghz processor which I use to play csgo. When I started playing first time I noticed that I have pretty low fps (50-70) in game and I did some research and found out that some amd phenom processors suffer from this thing called tlb bug. So I went to my bios setting and disabled tlb fix and got much more fps in cs go now (80 -120). However after doing that my csgo feels like slow and sluggish like I had huge input lag. This makes the game unplayable even tho I have more fps. With Tlb fix enabled there is no input lag and it feel right but the fps is horrible. Eithet way the game is unplayable so I have no idea what to do

So sometimes i get these 1 second lags in csgo just randomly and if u play csgo, then you do understand that this is a annoying problem, like if u are spraying at someone then the lag just appears.
I just cleaned my pc from dust so its not that.
Should i check my temps while im playing?
Is there something wrong with my gpu or cpu?

I appreciate all answers!

Hello Tkosj,

Have you tried doing a clean boot and running CS:GO? there could be something running in the background running that is interfering with your gaming? also do you have the latest GPU drivers for your nvidia graphics card? doing a scan with Malwarebytes and checking your temps wouldn't hurt .

I've just recently installed a fresh new versions of windows 7 on my new 256gb samsung ssd pro. I've installed all necessary windows 7 drivers from windows update. About 30min into a video game (csgo) I get a BSOD I only get this BSOD while playing the game.

This had never happened prior to installing a fresh copy of windows 7 on a new SSD. Im thinking it has something to do with drivers..

Hope i can get some help on this

Hey all,

So lately in the past couple weeks outta nowhere I've been not being able to play CSGO because it will just crash and BSOD after a while of playing (like 10-30 minutes). However, while playing any other game like Overwatch or Rust it doesn't crash at all and the BSOD issue doesn't occur. So I just decided "fine, I won't play CSGO", but now it just happened whilst browsing the internet a couple weeks after CSGO bsod became a regular thing. I have the dump files and this is a formal request for help, so thanks to anyone that reads the files and can give me any info on what I can do. Thank you

Hi, I'm new to this forum so apologies for not providing all relevant info right away.
The issue I'm having is that my computer will BSOD randomly while playing games such as CSGO, Civilization V and Europa Universalis IV. The time I play before a BSOD occurs seems random, although its usually before 30 minutes of gameplay.
In other instances, my computer simply turns off without warning, and then restarts itself without even presenting a BSOD. Attached is the BSOD file I've been instructed to upload. Any help would be much appreciated

If I need to provide any other details just say the word.
