Hi All,I have an Inspiron 15 7000 series (7559) to be exact.Core i7 processor,4 GB RAM,GTX 960M and 1 TB HDD.I have been trying to play GTA V,The Witcher 3 and a few other games but none of them work properly there is so much lag.I have reinstalled windows all NVIDIA drivers and everything is up to date.While playing the game GTA V in this case when it lags my DISK is at 100% in the task manager could that be the issue.I have been so disappointed with this laptop till now.Can anyone please help me with this issue.
( I have contacted dell they have replaced my motherboard which includes the Cpu and Gpu twice but still nothing)
If the motherboard has been replaced, then the graphics card is not suspected in this case.
I have checked the system requirements for GTA V - http://bit.ly/1OjwGL2 - and Witcher 3 - http://bit.ly/2a6jUmL - a 4GB RAM is not sufficient to run the game. Although, 4GB RAM for GTA V is minimum requirement, the recommended specification is 8GB RAM. This is a primary cause why you would notice the lag. And Witcher 3 will not ideally run your machine due to insufficient RAM availability.
You could change the graphics card settings to high performance to use only the GPU power - however, I don't suppose, that will completely help run the game smoothly. See this link - http://bit.ly/1y8dOtK
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.
I have the same issue, well a sort of, a few millisecond pause sometimes in games but I think it might be when it is accessing the HDD out of the 8GB cache and it being an 5400rpm HDD not coping. I am going to add a M.2 drive at some stage with a higher seek and transfer rate to see if that fixes it.
