I made a thread a month or so ago, about in total war shogun 2 getting horrible fps where as in other games I could get great fps.


I've been having this problem occur commonly now getting terrible frames in one game and amazing frames in another.

Here are my specs, as you can see they could handle games Like Shogun 2 and Arma 2 which are the games I'm having a problem with. But I have no clue what the problem is and I need some help.



I can get 60fps max settings on arkham city, so this is ridiculous. My 550ti drivers are fully updated also.

turn off the direct x 11 mode and try playing in dx9 mode..it should improve your fps

Open up the task manager, go to performance tab, you'll see the CPU usage graph. Then open up a game, wait for it to start lagging, then minimize it and check how the graph looked.

It's not right at all. Mind taking a screenshot of processes tab of task manager, when "show processes from all users" is clicked and the list is sorted by user name?

YOu really got to maximize that list or take multiple screenshots... I can only see 1/3 of the processes. Also, do that when you're lagging.

Here is the first half






And here is the second half (these were taken when laggy)

Okay that's very strange. At this point I'd suspect something is seriously wrong with Windows. I'd suggest a reinstall. I know this might sound rough, but it's the next logical step towards resolving your issue.
