But what about the rest of the PC drivers? I find that the average computer user skips the update to the chipset package or there are other issues they are not aware of.
So the common things I encounter are:
1. The owner has not installed the motherboard chipset driver package.
2. The HDD has high values in 01 and/or 07 of the SMART report.
3. There is some misconfiguration such as the monitor is plugged into the motherboard or other.
4. They ALLOW WINDOWS to select a driver from Microsoft. I have written for years to turn that off when you read a story like yours. I do not write how as it's just a google away.
Hey guys, i've been scouring the internet for ages and I just cannot find the cause nor a solution to this issue.
I'm a gamer, I love games, and I have a PC for gaming. Recently (well, not recently, but this issue has been weirdly on and off), i'm having an issue where all my FPS in games appears to be cut in half. Skyrim, for instance, which normally would run at 60 for me easily, is dropping to 24 to 30 frames per second, and can't climb above that.
Now, the odd thing is if I reinstall my nvidia GPU driver, it fixes the issue..
Until I reboot my computer that is. then, the issue is back and I have to reinstall my driver again if I want to play my games.
I have tried a clean install of the GPU driver, and quite frankly i'm at my wits end with this. I'm not a computer expert by any stretch of the imagination, but nothing i've been able to find online has been able to help me.
I'm running windows 7 64 bit, geforce GTX 970, an i7-4770K CPU, and 16 gb of ram.
