So i upgraded my PC ( http://shop.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/lenovo/y-series/y510p/#tab-tech_specs ) from 8.1 to win 10. I fixed all the issues with the high Disck usage (i disabled some services) and so it was running the same as 8.1 (which im not complaining). But then after some time a lot of errors and blue screens appeared and i got sick of them than i clean installed Win 10. Again i had issues with high disck usage that i fixed but when i launched a simple game Binding of Isac  it lagged REALLY hard.  Keep in mind that i was using SLI (i didnt use SLI before). And no, SLI is NOT the cause. So i got mad because i spent some time utilizing for the best performance. So i clean installed once again (this time from the settings) and as last time i fixed everything and it ren better than previous Win 10 but still not as good as before even tho i had SLI enabled. So now im really pissed off about this because i am working to improve performance for about a week now. Things i did:

- disabled some services (SuperFetch, Routing and remote acces, Auto time zone updater, SCardsvr, Remote registry, TCPport sharing service, Windows defender (i have bitdefender free), connected defice platform service) - some i have put to manual but that  shouldnt matter much

- disabled prefetch in regedit

- disabled windows tips and such

- optimized my graphichs cards for best performance

- i tried to do something with paging file but its not making a difference (i have it set to automatic now)

- updated ALL drivers


So i really want to keep Windows 10 if you can help me because im out of ideas. Also i wont buy anything because i dont have money ATM. Keep in mind that i want it to run better than before since i have SLI enabled now.  And if all else fails il go back to Windows 8.1...

If you have done a clean install, make sure that you install all the drivers that originally came with the computer.

You may have a disc, however you could find them online too. 


If you don't have the disc and you can't find them online, I would recommend contacting your manufacturer. 

Before you do it, make sure you have made a recovery disc ;) 


Hope this helps :)

I would follow ckemps advice and see how that does,you shouldn't be having too many issues with your system specs so somethings not right if checking your drivers etc doesnt work.


Its possible you just got a bad upgrade and need to redo it.(Clean installs are supposed to give you a better system although i upgraded one of my laptops and its been fine).


You could also test your hard drive just to make sure that its ok


You could use something like Seatools for Windows




Let us know how it goes or if you need any further help.
