Whenever i start the game, the FPS is ether 13 or 44.

I have no idea why this happens.

Edit: I have all of the game video settings set to the lowest option.

Does this only occur when you start the game or does it last for long?

does your computer meet the minimum specs for the game?

i have an idea why it is happening:

whenever i start up my laptop it says something like this:Alert: the AC adapters wattage and type cannot be determined, battery may not charge.Windows will adjust performance depending on the battery life.

So i think that getting a better AC adapter should do the trick.

Yep that's a problem with your AC adapter and not the game it's self. All laptops run slower when on battery power by design. You can't get full gpu performance while on battery. It would zap your battery to nothing in 5 minutes. You always have to plug it in to AC power (and make sure it's charging) before loading any game.

I know that i am answering my own question (again),but i think i have figured it out.

First of all i have almost all of  minimum specs. the ones that i don't have is the processer (i have Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3340M CPU @ 2.70GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.7GHz, i copyed that from directX).

Is Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 a good graphics card?

also until i get a 90 Watt AC adapter my computer will lower its performance by a lot when its plugged in.so i have to unplug my computer if i want to get good FPS. (even when its unpluged i don't get good frame rate, but 18 FPS never hut anyone).

That's way way under the minimum specs to run this game. You don't even have a dedicated video card.. that's intregrated graphics. There's nothing you can do to make the game run better on that computer. You'll need to upgrade the computer to have this game run correctly.

For you to understand better, refer also to here: https://www.userbenchmark.com/

CPU: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-3340M-vs-Intel-Core-i5-3570K/m1915vs1316
Your CPU is on the left, and is -68% slower than the minimum CPU (3570K)

Video card: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-HD-4000-Mobile-125-GHz-vs-Nvidia-GTX-760/m7653vs2159
Your video card is on the left. Your video card is -881% slower than the minimum video card.

That's why you're getting low FPS.
