Look in Reliability History and Event Viewer for error codes and warnings that occur when fortnite is opened.

Use Task Manager or Resource monitor to observe system performance for a few minutes before opening fortnite.

Open fortnite and you may see some change that occurs during that 1 second or thereafter.

My overall thought is that the PSU is deteriorating and may no longer be able to handle the power demands that are suddenly imposed.
