First and foremost this is my rig
It's an alienware laptop 17 R3
Geforce GTX 980
driver version 431.86
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ @2.60GHz
16 GB RAM
1920 x 1080 60Hz display

Okay so this is what's been happening and it's driving me absolutely mad.
I play a lot of overwatch and frames win games. My rig is more than capable of running the game on epic settings and getting 60FPS without a problem.
I logged into the game today and immediately i notice something isn't right. I get in game and the fps is suffering, going from my much needed 60 fps down to as low as 25-30. it's very erratic and is accompanied by occasional horrifying sound distortion making the game absolutely unplayeable. Reformatting the rig fixes the issue but it is a lengthy time consuming process that quite frankly I am getting absolutely sick of doing it.

I don't take my laptop around much it's bulky and heavy. It's usually stationary for lengthy periods of time. This problem mostly occurs whenever I pack it up move it and then take it out and set it up again.
It's not only the game I notice overall pc performance issues. slow browser loading etc. Please somebody help me, i even adjusted the power plan. I've tried many things to remedy this please help i don't want to reformat again or everytime this occurs.
