Specifically, I'm too new to help
However, a dual core/4 thread CPU from 2015 with only 4GB of RAM is fairly low-end system to try and play a game and simultaneously do video encoding, especially if you don't have a nice GPU to handle encoding. Are you saying you can stream ok now, just with lag/delay? or ?? From Task Manager/Resource Monitor, how is CPU, GPU, disk and RAM utilization?

Also, from the time you do something on the screen and it gets encoded, sent to stream provider (YouTube), re-encoded, then sent out... expect delay/lag (anywhere from 10/15 seconds if you are really luck, to 30 seconds and more.. this is normal, in my experience with live streaming (though not to YouTube, but the comments I've indicate issue is similar/same).

But I'm not a gamer, so hopefully someone can give you better advice.

Hi Lawrence thanks for youre respond, but when i play i never have lags or something like that, the laptop works great! Only when I want to record does it slow down. I don't want to stream just record my games. Do you have some good OBS settings that might help me?

You don't have to stream to record (though that is one way of doing it)
If I understand correctly, your laptop slows down when you try and use OBS to capture & encode your gameplay. Correct?
if so, that is totally expected. Video recording (and/or streaming) takes a lot of resources (CPU, GPU, and to some extent RAM, plus a fast drive if locally recording) to encode the video. Video encoding is much more demanding than your game.. unfortunately. I suspect, your laptop simply isn't powerful enough. You could try really lowering your stream/encoding settings (low frame rate, low bitrate, low resolution, etc)... even then, I wouldn't be surprised if your laptop isn't powerful enough... sorry.
Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will comment/offer suggestions.
