Low fps on all games until I restart computer.

#1Cobra1010Posted 1/24/2014 8:44:08 PM
Ok so sometimes when I log on my comp, I get really low fps on minecraft, skyrim and bf4. Unplayable lag. But then when I restart, its fine again. 60fps on minecraft, 90fps on bf4.

I dont remember this problem happening before I installed skyrim and steam is on the hdd also with skyrim. My os is on the ssd though. So when I installed skyrim, steam also intalled someother stuff like .netframe, directx etc. But I did a system restore before it installed direct x.

But this problem is still happening. It may not be skyrim. I remember the first timw I logged on bf4 I had this lag as well. And bf4 is on my ssd. All my gpu and cpu temperatures are cool. Less than 50oc.

Im running i7 4770k oc 4.2ghz with sapphire r9 290.
The 4770k passed the stress test but I recently just bought the r9. My psu is corsair cx750m. Could it be that I dont have enough power?

But whats weird is that when I restart my comp, all the problems go away and I can game on bf4 all day on ultra without the problem coming back until maybe next time I turn on my comp.

Whats the problem with my comp?

Is your computer plugged in? Very much common mistake.

Based on the info you gave nothing related to your hardware should be causing this issue. Attempt all of the following. It would also not hurt to do all of the following even if say #1 resolves your issue.

1. You said you did a system restore to a restore point before DirectX was installed/updated. Please go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/179113 and follow the instructions to make sure you have the latest DirectX version.
2. Do some virus scans, make sure your computer is completely free from malware, this could very definitely be causing this issue.
3. When you start seeing slowdowns open up your task manager and look at processes running. It is possible you have something running in the background you're not aware of that is sucking resources. Right click it and hit end task.
4. Make sure you're using the latest drivers for everything, in particular your videocard. If you are using the latest drivers for your videocard try and use the 2nd newest drivers, its not uncommon for videocard drivers to cause more issues than they fix.
5. Download CCCleaner, run it, hit the registry option and run scan then fix registry errors(also it does not hurt to do this regularly as preventative maintenance, run the cleaner on the cleaner tab as well to get rid of 'junk' on your HDD).
6. Report back findings after attempting all of the above.

I just downloaded gpuz. When that particular boot up that causes all my games to have low fps, the gpu is always on 100 percent load according to gpuz.

I uninstalled amd catalyst with all the drivers and reinstalled it. It seems to be okay now. But it could just be a good boot instead of a bad one.

Any ideas whats going on? Is it to do with bios settings? Is the amd drivers conflicting with my i7 4770k graphics?

Next time you notice the slowdown start task manager and check processes for any memory hogs. One of your programs may be causing memory leak if you have certains mods installed
