    Annoying Windows 10 Lag Spikes


    Hello.
    I have recently encountered weird problems with Windows 10, such as not being able to adjust the brightness (upon booting up, the brightness is either 0% or 100%), and sudden lag spikes that affect FPS by dropping it to 0 for 1-2 seconds, every 3 seconds. I have recently updated AMD Radeon drivers, and Windows 10 has also updated itself (which has always messed up everything) Also, now when the screen goes black (sleep mode), it always requires me to log in back to my Windows account, and it didn't do that before Windows updated itself.
    The lag that I'm experiencing, is NOT connection-based lag, so my internet connection and everything works perfectly. It just the FPS that drops suddenly. It just freezes everything for a moment. It also doesn't require me playing a game or anything; just being on the desktop, having nothing open, will still make the lag spikes occur. My processor runs on the desktop around 8-24%, and when the lag spikes occur, it doesn't change at all. So nothing's draining the processor, I guess. Also the memory and all the others stay on the same level.
    I really don't care about my other W10 problems; I just want to play without lag spikes.
    I am using a HP Laptop that's not that efficient, but I have always been able to play games like Minecraft with decent settings on 60FPS.
    And also, I have P2P disabled; that shouldn't be a problem.

    Does anyone have any tips to fix this? Help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi, what happens if you roll back the graphics driver?

    'Idle' cpu use at 8-24% seems high.. certainly my experience of Win 10 is there may be noticeable periods of higher CPU use e.g. after logging in, and Bitdefender during that time and occasionally at other times is more noticeable in using CPU time than I've seen it in other Windows, but once things have settled (no routine maintenance, updates etc), you might reasonably expect under 8%.

    I think the processor is running at 8-24% is because the processor aint that good. The reason also could be because of the 3000 processes that Windows 10 has on constantly, which you can't turn off.
    And also, I'm not sure how I'd roll back the driver. I updated to the newest AMD Radeon that there is, for Windows 10.

    Assuming you had an older version installed and then updated the driver (which is how I read your post, but I suppose you could mean you immediately installed the latest version):

    Roll back driver:
    Windows key + X, click Control Panel, click Device Manager, Display Adapters, rt click on your graphics device, Properties, Driver
    If you had an older version installed and have updated it, there should be a roll back option.

    Note that Win 10 will quite quickly try to update it, so the easiest way to try that would be to disconnect your internet before doing this.

    If you can't roll it back, you could manually download and install an earlier version that worked.
