Gaming notebooks are brilliant.
Unfortunately, they don't always work – at least not as well as they should.
Sometimes you'll get a game that won't play ball, or the performance will be woeful (and it really shouldn't be). Worry not, though, there's a solution – wrestling back control of your graphics drivers.
You see, while Nvidia and AMD update their drivers on a regular basis, laptop manufacturers don't, and they make their machines in a way that these generic graphics drivers don't work, either. The reason, in a word, is heat.
