Your hardware might not be properly supported in win 8.1, has this setup worked before? Maybe you're better off downgrading to win 7.

 

What are your temps like? If this system hasn't been deep cleaned in a while, the coolers might not be performing very well.

Whenever i try to play counter strike source my frames drop to 10fps and start to lag very badly to the point of the game being unplayable

anyway here my specs

Cpu:Intel(r) Celeron(r) d cpu 3.20ghz (single core)

Gpu:VisionTek Radeon 3850 GDDR3 512mb

Ram:2Gb

Motherboard:D865GSA

os:Windows 8.1

if i have to upgrade something or something i didn't mention.

You've got some extremely weak hardware there - the 3850 is fine, but open Task Manager with the game running and check how much RAM and CPU usage you're at. 

For reference, one of the systems I use as a testbench of things that could be faulty possibly fry the motherboard or PSU (it's kinda the sacrificial PC lol) runs Windows 10 x32. Similar hardware, single core 2 thread Pentium 4 HT at 3ghz, 2.5gb of ram and it is horrible in every game that I've tried on it, even stuff like Minecraft and Roblox. 

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really. 

List of my systems:

Main PC:

Spoiler

HP z620 workstation, 2x Xeon e5-2690 v0, EVGA GTX 980 SC, 8x4gb DDR3-1333, 2x 2tb HDD, 1tb boot SATA SSD, Windows 10 Pro

Linux system:

Spoiler

ProDesk 600 g1 SFF, i5-4590, Quadro k620, 2x4gb DDR3-1333, 64gb boot SSD, 250gb storage HDD from the ewaste pile with many bad sectors, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

XP system:

Spoiler

Compaq DC7600 SFF, Pentium 4 HT 631, MSI GT 210 passive, 2x512m DDR2-667, 80gb Spinmaster HDD

Testbench:

Spoiler

Optiplex 760 board, GameMax VP-600 PSU, 4x 64gb AliExpress SSD (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 10), 1tb HDD (storage)

(currently has a Core 2 Quad Q9550 and 4x2gb DDR2-800 but I change its config frequently)

I stopped reading after single core. 

i am not trying to be mean or nasty but CS:GO i can promise you is optimized for at least 4 cores. 

That computer was old in 2010. Its time for an upgrade. you could spend 300 dollars at Walmart and have a vastly better experience.

Ram usage is averaging at 100mb to 200mb but cpu is usage is 68% to 80% during gameplay

CS:GO with 1 core CPU, 2GB RAM, GDDR3 512MB GPU? You are so lucky to reach 10fps, I think the best it can do is 7fps.

Please upgrade it! Just few hundred dollar and you'll get +30 fps!

CS:GO with 1 core CPU

 

They clearly wrote Counter Strike Source, not CS:GO, when CS:Source came out dual core CPUs weren't even a thing, their system should run Source just fine.

 

@Zomb1rbro make sure you're not running off of onboard graphics, maybe do a clean install of the graphics drivers, something is off about the GPU for sure.

games get updated and it would be silly to assume that the game hasn't been updated to look for another core at the least.

Did a clean install and booted up the game and did the stress test and average around 17 to 18 fps according to the game and during in game average around.....1 to 2 fps don't know why the game is running low fps any fix?

use msi afterburner overlay,  show gpu, cpu, ram and vram usage,  and temps.

 

then make a screenshot when you get low fps, something has to give...

~ like so

That doesn't look good... maybe the post above is right and you should try windows 7... also check its really running on your dgpu, but then you still have 100% cpu usage. 

check for background processes,  do a full malwarebytes scan, and as said consider reinstalling windows (perhaps 7)

 

Do any games work normally at all?
