yesterday I briefly switched monitors so my wife could use my 2k monitor for art on her computer. When I switched back to it, none of my games would run at full performance. For instance, World of Warcraft typically runs at least 75 FPS at max settings, it now barely runs at 40 to 50 FPS. And most of my other games have had similar performance drops. It is worth noting, that according to MSI afterburner, neither my CPU or GPU are working above 60%
None of the settings had changed, I tried resetting everything to default, I reinstalled most of my drivers, I've checked for updates on everything, I've even reseated my my GPU. I'm getting close to wiping my computer and starting over, but I really don't want to do that.
My system is i7-9700F, RTX 2060 Super, 32gb RAM, 2tb SSD. 700w EVGA PSU.
I would really appreciate any help or insight. Thank you!
