For the past month any game I play the FPS has been fluctuating for no reason, I haven't installed anything or done anything different.
PC specs are:
I5 2500K 3.6Ghz
ATI 6770 Radeon HD 1GB
I've updated to the latest graphics card, turned the settings to the lowest, turned off P2P, synced windows clock, gone into msconfig and turned off everything to see if it was a program, re-installing the game, cleaning the pc, re-installing the OS, re-installing the graphics drivers...I'm completely out of ideas what to try next.
For example when I play League of Legends I used to have it on very high settings with a constant 60 FPS, now it doesn't matter what setting its on, the FPS fluctuates the entire game, worse during team fights and that most of the time freezes the screen and drops to 10 or lower.
It's nothing to do with overheating as I've checked the temp while playing LoL and its at 39.
If anyone has any suggestions of what I could try next or knows if it's a hardware problem I'd really appreciate it.
Can you open your PC case and confirm that the CPU fan is spinning? Is the PC still under warranty?
I don't think it's still under warranty as I did replace the graphics card thus the warranty is void. I'm not too smart when it comes to the insides of the PC, I may be able to, I just don't wanna break anything or mess something up haha. I just looked at the back of the PC and im pretty sure if I un-screw it and take the case off I won't be able to put it back . If you really need an answer about the fan then I could get my friend over tomorrow to have a look inside?.
