About a month ago my computer did a windows update, ever since then after about an hour of use my computer will lag. It will be fine for about 5 mins then for example typing this message my keyboard input would take a few seconds to enter in. Videos will also lag, stutter. I have been monitoring temperatures cpu has hit a max of 46 c. When im playing for example league my fps will be 200, then it will drop to about 30 then shoot right back up. I tested it with overwatch as well. Started up the game turned on the FPS display and had a steady 70 fps, then it would drop to about 20 and go right back up.

I ran Memory Diagnostics that came back with no issues, did a fresh install of windows 10, installed AIDA64 and ran a stress test on cpu. Temps only got to 54 c, my gpu temps go to about 65 when playing overwatch which is normal. Not sure what to troubleshoot next. Could it be my SSD is failing?

Any thoughts on why my computer might be lagging randomly?

Im using a AMD Ryzen 5 1600x
Asus gtx 1070
16gb of RAM

What are you doing to stop driver updates from Microsoft?

I'm running into this issue more and more where an owner has their PC all tuned up and then blammo. W10 will automatically update drivers which is not working out for those that have their machine with the best performing drivers already.

1. What are you doing about this?
Or you like many didn't know about W10 and this issue.

2. We use the Web Speccy report to check out a PC.
Here's how to share:

Will read it.

But I don't see an answer to my question about taking control of the drivers.

W10 Driver issue

Sorry, I was not aware of this issue in Windows 10.

So I have to make sure the drivers I am using are correct? If so the only thing i have done drivers wise is make sure everything was updated.

The issue is driving some folk nuts.

User installs drivers. They think they are up to date. Windows installs the version Microsoft thinks is best.

For a few minutes after you install the drivers it works then it reverts and you are left wondering. Goggle about how to take back control if you suspect this area. Key phrase: Disable Windows Driver Update.

A Speccy reading.

1. The Seagate HDD is showing the usual high readings that coincide with owner complaints. There are now so many discussions about this I no longer reply with all the answers or even pre-answer what folk ask about this. Drives in this condition are not failed but dogging performance. If you have a client that won't remove these you pack up the PC and return to customer as well as void their bill.

2. Can't tell what speed the RAM is at. Try CPUz. You want that at 1600.

Pretty clean Speccy except for the performance robbing Seagate HDD.

RAM Speed

My operating system is on the SAN Disk. The seagate is a dog of a HDD. Not sure why I still have it in there anymore.

My RAM is reading DRAM frequency of 1064..1MHz.

There's a lot written about

HDDs with high values in 01, 07, etc. I don't want to write that or how it affects system speed.

As to the RAM, I'd research how to get it up to speed. This will improve overall speed and even graphics work.

RAM speed

I just increased the frequency on the RAM going to do some testing with that.

Just want to say thanks for responding with the suggestions you have. Really appreciate it.
