    You have not answered the question about the age of other components in your system other than the Graphics Card.

    The MOBO runs everything including parts that are removable. So things like re-seating RAM Modules, removing a HDD, replacing heatsink paste, new Graphics Card and so forth does not test any functionality on that MOBO.

    I have filled in most of my system specs so you guys know them. The problem is not the thermal paste because the CPU isn’t hot, the drives also aren’t the problem and I’ve updated the GPU and windows is updated to the latest version. I don’t know whats the problem with my PC

    It would be helpful for us to try and understand what might be happening with more information. There is not a lot to go on here.

    In Post #20 Caledon Ken asked for the results in Task Manager for the major components.
    When you do this, open Task Manager as soon as possible when starting from cold off. Let us know how the reading change as the PC loads completely to an idle state.

    He also asked for the Windows 10 version. If you recently updated to version 2004 this might explain some things.

    It would be a good idea to run some of the usual diagnostics. System File Checker and DISM.
    Run SFC Command in Windows 10
    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image

    You've tested the hard disks, but for troubleshooting it is sometimes best to simplify the system and test. That would be disconnecting all extra hard drives, disconnecting all USB devices except keyboard and mouse, anything not needed.
    If things clear up then you add devices back one at a time and test until the condition returns.

    You could also try resetting BIOS defaults and testing.
    After that you could try a ClearCMOS/CLRTM procedure.

    All of this will give you (and us) a baseline to go on. It will eliminate all the usual suspects.

    Hey Caledon, while typing this and having no other big programs on my memory is on 2,5GB / 5,1GB and my processor has it spikes. I have downloaded CrystalDiskInfo, all the disks seem fine but disk D says "caution" (see the screenshot below)

    I recently reinstalled the windows, my PC runs now on Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041

    Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

    At the point where you have even one bad sector, it is time to replace the drive.
    Based on backblaze's (online storage) stats, once you start having bad sectors, rate of drive failure goes from linear over time to exponential over time.
    In terms of the slowdown, it is possible that the bad sector in question is in a critical system file eg. the pagefile, so every write to that file slows the system down. As others have suggested, running chkdsk /f /r at this point is critical, but so is replacing the drive. Yes, I have drives which've had 6 bad sectors and lasted another 5 years, but I don't do that with my clients (I repair computers for a living).
    Cheers-

    The OP has a bad disk drive, but it is not his system drive.
    Disconnecting the bad drive did not clear up the problem.
    The OP now has 2 problems.
    We are dealing with problem #1 here.

    There are many things that can slow down a computer, from failing driver to programs running on the background. Virus is one of them.
    You have to make things simple as possible (as disconnecting drives and removing graphics card and use IG). Run MS config to see what is loading on the startup and running on the background (disable all non MS services and all startup programs).
    If naked system runs well, begin to reactivate software and hardware.

    Depends whether pagefile is on first drive (default) or secondary (manually configured). If first drive, then I agree with you.

    D drive does not seem to be the problem, I removed it and the PC was still as slow as before.

    Hey Mandalorian Ill check that tonight and tell you

    - - - Updated - - -



    My CPU is at 60C so thats not the problem, my PC also recognizes all the RAM and the thermal paste seems fine; it is 3 years old. With the start of this problem we updated the GPU so thats ok!
    Great, glad to hear the CPU checks out. Ok so the GPU was updated after the problem, got ya. Id still re-seat the RAM if I were you just in case. Id also run the PC in safe mode to see how it starts just to rule out the GPU going forward. Let us know if you need help doing any of this!

    I would look into your mobo manufacturers web site for a bios update if it still is a problem id also try a chipset update.

    I agree try running Run SFC Command in Windows 10
    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image but in windows then you should do DISM FIRST then SFC after

    It seems to be CPU temperature what someone said before, so I bought some thermal paste online and I hope that will fix it

    - - - Updated - - -

    The PC went in some safety procasion so it only used small % of the CPU I guess, so when I checked the temperature last time it was low. I reconnected all cables in the PC and now it uses every % but its 100C so I will replace the thermal paste.

    I would say it's not the thermal paste. If well applied, thermal paste never needs to be replaced.

    Check if heat sink is clean and it is well placed and tight over the CPU. Sometimes one of the heat sink arms get loose.

    My suggestion is to download, extract (I have mine extracted to C:\Program Files (x86)\HardwareMonitor) and run Open Hardware Monitor. Set it to run on windows start. You can configure to show on gadget and on tray (see mine as an example).

    It will record the min and Max temperatures (and many other parameters). Very good.
