Question Input delay out of no where, hard for competitive gaming

Oct 22, 2020
This has been happening for about a month and a half now, though it went away for about a week. The week it went away I installed an update for my computer. Since then I've installed nothing, but the issue came back. There is even posts about it dating back to 2015 with this issue, all having no solutions. I've contacted support for many different companies and none of the solutions have done anything. I've clean installed my drivers, revert my windows updates, reinstalled a lot of my applications. I have the Sceptre M27 monitor running at 185hz, and another 60hz dell monitor. The dell monitor is 1920x1200 and the Sceptre monitor is 1920x1080. I have nothing else to do and am willing to do literally anything. I also have the latest bios for my motherboard and all my drivers and windows updates are up to date. I have tried setting the Sceptre monitor to a lower refresh rate, didn't change anything

Heres what I have done


-Keep my Files reset

-Updated windows

-Moved outlets

-Turned off Game DVR and mouse acceleration

I have done the keep my files reset. Didn't work. Is this a hardware issue and something I have to do with my build? Game DVR and all that bs is disabled. I am trying to post this in as many places as I can so I can get a variety of things to try

I have also tried TronScript to see if that would work. It did not, I don't have any other PC to test my GPU with. I have yet to do a fresh windows install because I am trying everything I can. Every other person who has had this issue has reset windows and it did not fix it for them. None of the forums have an absolute answer.
