There was an offer to upgrade to Windows 10 about a month or so ago and it was free. After I upgraded, I'm not sure if its my computer or if its windows 10 but everthing slowly started to get very laggy, that includes opening up start menu, any folder, going on the internet, and especially playing games is literally impossible. My biggest issue as of now is when I try to play the same games I've been playing for a while now on windows 10 5-10 minutes, sometimes maybe even 20 mintues, the game starts lagging and the lag gets worse and worse until my screen just completely turns black, but I can kind of hear the game still running but my screen turns black and there's no way of turning it back on or doing anything unless I force shutdown my computer. I can't go back to windows xp because of the fact that it's been over a month which I was not aware of. I've dug myself into a hole just hoping someone can help me out with this issue with the screen turning off and not being able to play any games, and also the lag.

 

Please and Thank you!

If there's a way to still go back to windows XP, I wouldn't mind that either becuase I don't think windows 10 is helping or is better. Just looks nicer, but that doesn't really matter to me. Ty!

Did you go from WindowsXP to Windows 10? If so, your hardware could be outdated, eg, your ram, processor, hdd, etc. how old is this machine?, did you go from

XP-7-10 or XP-10?

I see, Under "Device Manager" do you see any exclamation marks inside a yellow triangle?

 

and in windows 10 to revert back (if within 30 day of install) is under lick the “Update & security” icon and select “Recovery.” You should see a “Go back to Windows XP /7" option. though i have never tested this on a machine that went from XP-10.

What does it say under "Display Adapters" if you see "Basic VGA" or something along those lines, update your video driver.

 

How much RAM do you have and is your machine 32 or 64 bit?

Okay, open command prompt as admin, and type in sfc /scannow and let it run. Check for updates. and hit CRTL+SHIFT+ESC (Task Manager) and go to the "Processes" tab and monitor your disk usage for about 5-10 mins after you run SFC.

Run a check disk on the drive, use the Command Shell with these commands.

chkdsk c: /f/r/i/c

 

I am seeing similar problems daily. The errors are from your previous OS that Windows 10 upgraded from. It will slow down more every day until it won't work properly or crashes.

 

A 1TB disk takes between 4-6 hours to fully scan, if there are many errors it could take 8-10 hours or longer. Running from command shell in Windows 10 does not give you a visual file count view if it will only perform the check on system boot. So I run it from the Recovery Environment in the command shell there, or use the cool 3rd party tool "CheckDiskGUI" get it from the developer here.

Good luck.

It is good that you have found and fixed some errors, but it appears that your problem still exists. So you should now try to do what Viper_Security has suggested. Run System File Checker. It will fix file errors and will hopefully then allow Windows to work like normal for you.

 

Okay, open command prompt as admin, and type in sfc /scannow and let it run. Check for updates. and hit CRTL+SHIFT+ESC (Task Manager) and go to the "Processes" tab and monitor your disk usage for about 5-10 mins after you run SFC.

 

A note to Queen-Evie. Sorry, understood and it won't happen again.
