Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Capped at 30FPS

A friend has her laptop for over two years, and she's constantly playing-capped at 30FPS. I tried looking through the Nvidia Control Panel, lowering settings on the specific games she's playing, turning ON/OFF V-Sync - nothing seems to work.

The specs are Intel - 6700HQ, Nvidia GTX 960M, 8GB of memory, and 1TB HDD and 128GB SSD.

Did she update her GPU driver?

It's updated to the latest version according to Geforce Experience. Maybe I should manually download the latest driver for the 960M?

You need to get the driver from lenonvo's website not nvidias. Lenovo has custom drivers made for its laptops

Appreciate the help! Will download the driver from Lenovo's site, and might as well post on Nvidia's forums.

DAMN, I definitely didn't try that, as I thought this would apply to everything that is installed. Will now!
