I will look at chipset drivers when I’m home, when you say reinstall windows, do I have to just simply reinstall it by pressing a button in settings? And does it wipe my pc?

Given that something is going on and you want to eliminate Windows as the issue, you want the full wipe. That means making Windows 10 install media from Microsoft's website, booting to the flash drive or disk you make and doing a full wipe and reinstall.

I’m not able to directly reply on mobile but @DSzymborski does this mean that I should install the os directly to my m2 this time around? I wasn’t given an option to previously but maybe it just wasn’t formatted or something

I will try doing this when I get home and will get back with any problems / results. My download speed is awful so I won’t really be able to test games

Userbenchmark again after you get all the drivers up to date (chipset too) and post results here it'll be enough to tell if it's working proper. You can move whatever is on your m2 over to the hd and bring it back when you're done

I can’t download anything as I’ve no access to any of the files, as an administrator my access is denied, I’ve tried changing everything....

And what steps did you take between the last two posts? It's getting extremely difficult to follow all the things you're doing on your PC with such a fractured timeline. At this point, I have no idea what you're doing, what you have done, and what you haven't.
