I have a new 600 W power supply and an 8 GB RX 480 GPU installed in my PC. When it boots up, everything loads up a lot slower than normal. Games have an extremely low FPS drop and load up way slower than normal. I have an integrated graphics and processor installed in the motherboard still. The thumbnail shown is what happens when I open DXDiag:

 I see you're using an Acer OEM PC and you have replaced the PSU with that eVGA 600w 80+ bronze, which should be ok, but I would make sure you have attached the CPU-power lead and 24 pin motherboard power connector firmly. Then I would uninstall the AMD driver package when the screen comes up for you to choose what to uninstall make sure that only the GPU drivers will be uninstalled NOT the motherboard/SATA drivers, as your units probably has the unified AMD package to go along with your APU/CPU. Once that is done, reboot but get into your Acer bios and disable your APU (just the PEG on the GPU part) as there are some AMD AM series APU boards that do not initialize an add-in GPU correctly unless you toggle off the APU within the bios not sure if that's the case with your issue but I would try the basic things listed below before anything else.

 

Things to check_

 

1. That you have actually plugged your display cable into your new GPU instead of the back of your motherboard's integrated APU port.

2. That your power supply CPU 4-6 pin, and your motherboard ATX power connector are firmly seated

3. Make sure you download this very driver for Windows 10 this is the Crimson driver with the hotfix

https://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+64

3. That your new GPU is seated well enough in the PCIe slot, and finally after a driver install that you can see it listed in the device manager

You still have not posted the model of this Lenovo, nor have you answered my question regarding the drivers for the new GPU.  Please do so.

 

The maximum temperature for you A10-6700 is 71.3C, yours is running at 84C.  You need to open your case and inspect the interior and the components inside for an accumulation of dust, especially for the fan and heat sink assembly on the CPU.  But... before you touch anything inside the case you need to touch the metal of the case to discharge any static electricity in your body.

 

Your C: drive which contains the Windows operating system only has 31.4GB (2%) free space.  You need to fee up some of the space.  With the partition so full it will slow down the performance of the hdd which could be part of the problem with the computer slowing down.
