Question Performance Issue

Jul 15, 2020
So basically, my computer has been pretty smooth, plays games well, does everything, I make sure to keep it optimized, virus free, and it's resources free.

RX 580 series (graphics card)
intel 920 processor
16 gb of ram
500gb ssd

you know the usual good stuff but when I had a look at my graphics card settings, I decided to change it's workload to compute on some cpu heavy games, then switched it back to graphics after I was done and that's when I noticed an issue, every time I booted up my computer, it struggled to run a game, but after I restarted it, it ran perfectly fine, this didn't happen before, help?
