hi, I have an issue with Minecraft, Valorant, and Fortnite. I think it was since a driver update. And I know the FPS drops because they go to 0 and my game is frozen on 1 frame for more than 3 seconds. I also have high input delay And when I'm not doing anything i have high CPU usage.

If you really are at a loss and your system is giving you that many issues, my go to is always a system refresh. Just makesure you have everything you want saved on an external device before a system reset. Ive spent countless hours/days dealing with glitchy computers and if all they are being used for is gaming and browsing, a fresh install every now and again never fails to bring the system back to new and snappy!

I appreciate the information.


I would like to investigate further about this, please provide the following information:


  • If you roll back to the previous driver version, does the issue disappear?
  • Do you have the latest updates/patches of these games installed?
