Hi thanks for taking the time to read so yeah I have a pretty big problem I have no idea what it is.

So 3 days ago I was playing some Overwatch and I have my fps locked at 100 and it has no trouble. Same with League Of Legends it ran fine and at a decent CPU and GPU usage around 50% or less at high settings. Well today I came to play some games and my pc's fine, just when I run any game it's badddd. When I went to play Overwatch the first thing I saw was that my game quality dropped.

So I go to put turn it back up to where I usually have it meanwhile I noticed my fps dropped from the usual 100 fps to struggling 9 fps. I got to my task manager to see whats going on and my GPU and CPU are running at 99% Which the only things that were running were Overwatch and the Overwatch launcher and the task manager.

(Update) I just tried again and my Overwatch was fine at the 100fps+ 10 seconds later it dropped to 40fps now its going from 30 to 40 fps....Now my CPU and GPU are also at 80%.

Maybe it has something to do with my MSI software's? Or should I do some full scan on my pc?
My PC specs
CPU- Intel i3 7100
GPU- Geforce GTX 1050Ti
Ram- G.Skill 8GB
Hard drive- WD-Blue 1TB
Operating system- Windows 10 Pro

Ask away pls.

Whats going on here doesn't make much sense, unless you literally unplugged your monitor from your GPU and plugged it into the onboard graphics.

I would download DDU and kill your video drivers and reinstall them first.

Nope just task manager, Google chrome and some provider host. Well also to say I think my pc has been acting weird since a Windows 10 Update ....Like some running stuff in the background and also the February update crashed my moms pc and had to get it fixed. So maybe it's a bug with the update.
