PC acting up

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So recently my pc has started to act up by randomly freezing in games, having a delay when I try to search something up with cortana etc. And I'm just trying to find the root to this situation so I can fix it.

 

I was possibly thinking that it could be because my disk space is running out? I also thought the issue was because I hadn't dusted my pc in a while, but even after I dusted my pc, the problem continued. I have malwarebytes + bitdefender and I have no trojans, malwares or viruses.

 

Here is my disk space:

Could it also be my fan?

One of the easiest places to start is a DDU (follow their recommended instructions) of your drivers and a reinstall, see if that gets you anywhere.

When it comes to Cortana lagging behind, honestly it doesn't surprise me all that much. She has never been the most responsive assistant, and Multiple times now, I've had to do reinstallations of Windows because Cortana and her integration into the start menu begin to not work for some inexplicable reason.

So if I use that program to uninstall my drivers, would it automatically reinstall them?

No, you'll have to obtain those on your own.


For Nvidia, that can be done two ways:

1. Through GeForce Experience (it is worth noting that many people consider GeForce Experience to be bloatware and unnecessary)

2. Direct download

For AMD
you're looking at Direct download
