every single game i play, there is a reoccurring short period in which they drop from 30-60 fps to 5-10 fps. its getting to the point where some of my games wont even launch or just crash because of it. i have attached a video on youtube. any help is appreciated.

GPU: NVIDIA QUADRO K1100M
RAM: 32 GB

That laptop has been sucking in dust for the better part of a decade, has it been cleaned lately?

Try running a temperature monitoring program like hwmonitor.
Less likely, but it could also be a loading issue. What drive is the game on? Is the drive almost full?
