Is Geforce getting my settings wrong or is my PC not working as it should?
Hi all, I recently bought an HP omen 870-224 to get into PC Gaming. However, it seems like i've been having problems running pubg or rust at settings higher than medium (for pubg it lags if its any higher than low settings). My problem is that Geforce Experience says that I can run those games at Medium-High Settings. Whenever I optimize through Geforce, there is a dip in stability in the game and i lag signifcantly more. Is something wrong with my PC or is Geforce getting this wrong?

. Welcome to the world of SCREWED up computing....that about the only real way to describe it. Laptops generally require Certified Drivers. These improve compatibility, Stability and prevent damage to the GPU. In this case it is a [url=https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/omen-by-hp-870-200/13687063/model/15741160]DESKTOP[/url], but it still appears to require certified Drivers from HP.

    My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

    Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

    ""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
    Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

    If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

    Just because you can, does not mean you should.
