Question Unplayable Drop in Performance

Jul 12, 2019
Since I last bought this laptop, in around July of 2017, the performance has dropped significantly and I can't even play any actual games anymore so I've been forced to play ROBLOX and Minecraft, my specs are:

CPU: Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU (4 cores)
RAM: 16 GB
Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4 GB

I'm using the ASUS ROG Strix GL553VD laptop currently and have had it for 2 years. Performance drops are absolutely insane, as I used to be able to run GTA V at 40+ FPS on high settings, and now I can only run it at 15 FPS on low settings with extreme texture loss, I'm not very interested in spending another $1k on a new PC/laptop, so please help.
