Question PC lags/goes to like 1hz for a couple seconds whenever I open, close or load into a game?


Feb 3, 2017
I've been getting pc lag as soon as I open, close or load into a game it last for only like a second and feels like my whole PC is at 1hz, I just learned if I press the window key everything goes back to normal. Earlier before I changed the virtual memory, the game would instantly or after a couple games crash and give me an error saying "out of video memory trying to allocate a rendering resource. make sure your video card has the minimum required memory, try lowering the resolution and/or closing other applications that are running. exiting..." also before I changed the virtual memory size I've blue screened a couple times with error codes like "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" I recently installed a brand new m.2 2tb SSD and added another CL14 3600hmz 32gb ram to be at 64gb total (same exact ram btw). Although after changing the virtual memory I haven't had any crashes/blue screens but the game still lags whenever I load/open/close the game. I've attempted to do a full factory reset, change the MHz to 3200, take out the ram and be at 32gb, uninstall and reinstall the graphics driver and change the virtual memory size. I've been playing for a bit now and the game hasnt crashed yet but it still lags when lauching games.

Use the task manager and try to observe what program or processes are being used while loading your games to see what if anything is using up resources. Have you tried resetting bios to original/optimal settings? And the same for your gpu, try resetting it to orignal settings for troubleshooting.
