    One other thing that I have noticed is that since I plug in my laptop to an external monitor with external parts like keyboard and mouse, there is a noticeable difference in performance. Much more like it should be when docked in this fashion, and the battery thing is on high performance mode. Could this be something with the battery settings?

    Okay the battery modes DEFINITELY impact the performance. I generally use power saver mode or the better battery mode when my laptop is not plugged in. I've been turning it to high performance mode and ONLY then is the laptop at it's normal speed. Problem is, the battery drains quite fast and only projects it to get like 4 hours of use when the laptop is rated for 14 hours. Any ideas?

    I would use the drivers recommended by the manufacturer on their support website unless you know for sure that there are better drivers for your particular notebook model. Notebook are not small desktop, they have a lot of hardware crammed into a small space and driver for that hardware can be fussy and cause problems. Every Windows update has a tendency to think that their native drivers are the best thing for your notebook, and that just isn't so.
    Yeah, sorry for clarity issue. That was the first thing I tried actually, and I ran third party stuff just to make sure I wasn't missing anything even though I had downloaded everything off the main manufacturer's website.
