Like the title says, while playing games my GPU usage stays at 0% usage, not matter the graphics settings. I tried to play Battlefield 5 but it was unplayble due to lag and stutter while my graphics card sat at about 0% and went up to 5% at most.
These were the fixes I tried:
-Changed the power plan on Windows to High performance.
-Checked to see if in that power plan PCIExpress power management was off.
-On Nvidias control panel selected the correct GPU instead of being automatic on the 3D settings.
-Still on the 3D settings page I picked maximum performance on the power management.
-Uninstalled GeForce Experience and redownloaded the driver from their website.
-Installed a fresh version of Windows, installed all the drivers, didn't install GeForce Experience but installed the drivers from the website.
-Updated BIOS to the newest version.
After all of these fixes, yesterday the game ran fine but today the problem is back. I also had this problem last week when playing Metro Exodus, so the problem isn't Battlefield 5.
Games are completly unplayable, with heavy stutters, really bad framerates that I shouldn't be getting with this build.
I saw a post claiming it could be a bottleneck that can cause the problem but I don't think that's a problem here.
Here are the specs:
-AMD Ryzen 7 3700x
-Gigabyte RTX 2070 super Gaming OC
-16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3600MHz Cl16
-MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon Max Wifi
-Corsair CX650M Semi Modular PSU
-Crucial P1 500GB
-Seagate Barracuda 2tb (currently not in use)
Is there any other fixes I can try? Because this computer is brand new, it shouldn't be having these kinds of problems.
