1 FPS in-game, normal FPS everywhere else.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Slowly trying to isolate and resolve a few issues after installing a new CPU Cooler & GPU. I have most of them resolved but one is still sticking around. I have normal FPS in Windows, but when I launch a game it runs at 1FPS. I've since updated my display and GPU drivers with no change. I've also check under display adapter properties and it's set to 64Hz (Used to use DVI but new GPU only has HDMI & DisplayPort), I am however on a 144hz panel, just limited by the HDMI cable and am obviously only expecting to see 60FPS in games because of this. I read a forum post where someone was experiencing the same problem and updating their BIOS solved it for them. If you guys think that's a good next step I can go ahead with that, although to my knowledge it's usually a last resort.

 

My BIOS version is from mid 2015. The new GPU is a RX 5700XT, so I can see how they might not work well together haha. Thanks for any feedback/suggestions. Much appreciated.

 

List of possibly related issues & solutions I've tried:

 

Problems

1. GPU not displaying in HW monitors.

2. Windows Update failed

3. I disabled Discord launch on boot and the setting was reverted after restarting the PC. Also pinned tabs in my browser reappear after I unpin and close them > restart the system.

Solutions

1. Removed GeForce Experience, Nvidia Drivers & other companion software

2. Installed AMD Drivers

3. Disabled SMART in BIOS to dodge Disc failure message on boot

3. Updated display drivers

windows update failure can be resolved by using windows update assistant

download here

i just used it as my grandparents hadnt updated for sometime and the updates were failing.

i would update chipset driver and bios.

use DDU to ensure clean install of gpu driver

SMART is a good feature and as stated in your other post check your mounting pressure of your cooler. This can be the cause of other issues

Forgot to mention, yes I did check the mounting pressure, Firm enough to ensure no movement of the block, but not torqued down more than neccessary, same as I'd done with my original AIO until the pump failure :) Will update all of the above then post an update.

Have you tried reinstalling windows?

Not yet, will try other avenues for now as @narrdarr suggests, then look at reinstalling Windows :)

also open CMD as admin

run chksdk /f/r

 then run

sfc /scannow

For the love of all that is logical, use Display Driver Uninstaller. Your system is a driver mess since you haven't removed the Nvidia driver and overlapped it with the AMD one

Bruh I'd never heard of DDU before now, not the "logical" thing to do for everyone mate.

It's pinned on every GPU guide/article on the webs 🙄

Seems like DDU requires Safe Mode, and I can't seem to boot into it, I've tried using F8 spam, via the windows settings, holding shift then restarting etc. None seem to work. I've looked a bunch of tutorials also. Is there a new way to get to safe mode in 2020 or is there another issue?

 

Might be related to what's happening in windows with the (previously closed) browser windows and taskbar icons reappearing after restarting my PC. Is it possible that the PC is forgetting that I selected boot into safe mode? The safe mode option is unchecked in msconfig after restarting too.

 

I'm out of time to work on the PC this evening, will try any suggestions tomorrow.
