GPU isn't maxing out where usually it does and fps become lo

by Star_SNG / February 10, 2018 12:08 AM PST

I got a GTX 1050 Ti with a Phenom X6 1090T. My GPU always maxed out on 99% and sometimes 100%, with not much bottleneck on the CPU, but 2 days ago I was playing PUBG and streaming w/ my friend and It was fine and then I stop the stream, do some stuff, then shut the PC down. But about 9 hours later, I turn on my PC, do some stuff, then open up PUBG. My FPS is low. Where it usually around 60, it's 30 and lower. Later I found out that my GPU isn't maxing out and it barely go above 50%, but the CPU isn't going above 70% and the thermals are well below 60 degrees Celcius, and it never goes up to 80 degrees. It does the same thing with CS: GO and Minecraft, but it maxing out on Unigine Heaven and Superposition. Please help me. I still have the warranty but I don't even know if that will help. I tried clean install and reinstalling the graphics driver and system restore, but none helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
