Hi there,

 

I play on this laptop for like a year, with low settings, and it worked fine. (for the people screaming: ''why do u game on a laptop you noob?'', well I travel a lot and I don't have much money to spend. 2 days ago, my screen kind of freezed, I could move my mouse cursor but not click anything. So I turned my laptop off and on again, and since then, my laptop is much slower loading into WoT, and my fps is at the start, 1, and when the game really starts it's around 15 fps. Loading into the game is much longer now for some reason, first it was loaded around 30-20 seconds before the game started, and now if I'm lucky, 5 seconds before the game starts, sometimes even when the game already started... This is very annoying. I scanned my computer but there were no threats. When i zoom in, there is a small lagg spike, which is very annoying too because it costs time, and sometimes damage, so for some reason everything is much slower. Can someone explain me what happend and if I can do something about it? -btw, I don't know a lot of computers.

 

also, I don't know if it's just me, but I notice that the screen is a bit less bright.

 

cheers, Ruben.  

 

-same story on the test server, so it's probably my laptop, so to reinstall wot won't work.

-I know this is not really related to Wot, because the problem is probably my laptop, but if I talk about WoT in other forums, they have probably no idea what I mean.

World of Tanks is single-threaded and thus it's impossible to balance load over all cores, which causes the laptop to overheat and thus throttle CPU speed to force lower temperatures.

At some point however, the BIOS and/or firmware got stuck (likely through a bug) in that throttled mode.

Or the heatsinks are clogged up with dust and it's in a permanent state of overheating.

I listened to this guy, and it works a bit. i got higher fps (around 20-25), but it still falters a lot. loadingtime into a game is better, but still bad.

I changed some settings, in the power options, and changed over and over again, untill it worked at it's best. I got from 20 fps to 60/70 fps and that is better than it was before. Normally i had around 40 fps lol. My laptop isn't raising in temperature, so case solved I guess.

Thanks for the info, it really helped me.

 

WG u can close this topic.

 

Cheers Ruben.
