Hello Abhijeet_980,


Thank you for the information provided, in this case, we recommend performing a clean install of the latest graphics drivers provided by the system manufacturer since these drivers are customized. Follow these steps:


Check Windows* updates:


• Click the Windows Start button. 

• Click the search and type Windows updates and click on that option.

• Select Check for Updates and ensure you have the latest Windows* version. 


Clean installation of the Graphics Driver:


1- Download the latest customized driver from the Computer Manufacturer Support Websites and save the installer on the computer.

2- Disconnect from the internet to make sure the driver will not be automatically updated by Windows.

3- Uninstall the Intel Graphics driver. To do this, please follow the steps on the link below under these sections:


• Uninstalling the Intel Graphics Driver via the Device Manager Method

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005598/graphics.html


4- Restart the computer.

5- Right-click the Windows Start button. Select Device Manager.

6- If no older drivers are stored in the system, the graphics controller in Device Manager should now be listed as 'Microsoft Basic Display Adapter', 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter', or similar. If not, repeat step 3. Repeat the process until it is listed as 'Microsoft Basic Display Adapter'.

7- Install the latest graphics driver provided by the system manufacturer.

8- Once the latest driver has been installed, enable the internet connection again.

Hello Abhijeet_980,

 

Hope you are doing great and staying safe, in this case, it is important for you to know that since the games are playable on battery life means that drivers and GPU are working well while running the games, and the drop of the FPS while charging the laptop could be related to the high temps.

 

Important to mention that Genshin's impact as per release notes ReleaseNotes_101.1404 ''anomalies'' known issues have been reported on 12th gen but this should not affect temps and this is on another family and for Valorant we have an article: "Frame Rate Issues with Valorant on Driver Version 27.20.100.8587 or Higher". We were unable to replicate issues related to FPS as per the article and as well this should not be affecting temps.

 

Our recommendation, in this case, is to check the issue directly with your system manufacturer to get specialized support on how to handle temperatures and issues while charging your system. 

 

You might need to check the following with the manufacturer:

 

  1. Check on the processor pad.
  2. The fan is clean.
  3. Update the BIOS.
  4. Check with for BIOS settings.
  5. Update all drivers.
  6. Without opening any apps, check Task Manager to see if there is any abnormal services or program running.
  7. Make sure the charger is not damaged.
