Solved Low FPS in all games..why?

June 16, 2018 at 18:51:23
Specs: Windows 10
I've been using this PC for about a year now and I've only had one bad thing happen to it. Somehow I accidentally got malware and Adware and had to have the PC cleaned and factory reset. I believe that once everything was out of the system (which yes, everything is. No more malware) and after I fully installed and optimized my Drivers that all my games would go back to normal. However that is not the case. Although my games have improved in FPS, example such as a game running at 10-20 fps now runs around 25-60 with a few hiccups in the 7-10 range, they are still not at the original 90-150 FPS which I used to get. No lower or higher unless I was in a main menu. My specs are

GeForce GTX 1070
Driver version 398.11
Intel core i7-7700K
15.7 GB RAM
ANTEC 900w power supply
MSI motherboard and Graphics card
Ripjaw RAM sticks
Windows 10 operating system

No idea if all of that is needed or if I left out anything specific. Monitors are connected to the GPU and not the Motherboard. Tried everything and nothing seems to improve...I'm hoping someone replies to this and if you do and end up help fixing my pc then thank you so so much. I've been dealing with this for a few months and really..really want this to be done with.

How do you do a factory reset on what appears to be a custom computer? Did you do it or someone else? Generally the 1st driver that should be installed is the motherboard chipset driver. What's the board model number?

✔ Best Answer
If you reloaded Windows and the drivers, I would check a couple of things.
1- Was your CPU overclocked? Is it still at the same settings in BIOS?
2- Is the RAM still set properly in BIOS? XMP settings?
3- Have you checked that the hardware is still the exact same (if a shop or friend worked on it outside of your view)? Open case and look.
4- Since this appears to be a custom system you need to go manually to each component vendor to get the correct drives (NVidia for graphics driver), beginning with motherboard drivers.
5- If this was a factory overclocked GPU model, is it still set to those settings? If not then download the full NVidia suite/control panel and set it accordingly to the listed specs.
6- Do you have the same AV program? Some big name AV programs are murder on system resources and can slow things down badly.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
