Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit


16GB Ram

Intel Core i7-5820K

Acer XB270H GSYNC monitor (144hz)



When I restart my computer and enter certain games, my FPS will be 20-25 FPS when the game is focused. If I focus my desktop then look at the game in a window while NOT focused, my FPS will be normal 60-300 FPS depending on the game.


To fix this, I found this ranmdomly by the way. I need to go to my NVIDIA control panel and go to "Adjust Desktop size and position"... Whatever the settings I have selected doesn't matter, I need to hit "apply" for the fix to happen. When I restart my computer, no matter what settings I have selected, it will lag again and I then must hit "apply" again. TO get apply button enabled, I need to change the settings which seem to not matter.


I have no idea why this is happening but there is obviously something going on.

First, download the latest Nvidia Drivers

Then, download this: Wagnard's Display Driver Uninstaller - this is a GPU driver cleaner, it will definitely remove your GPU drivers, unlike official uninstallers. Note: There are some deceptive ads on the forum page.


  • Run Wagnard's DDU - it may create a number of files in the same directory, like a .zip file, so you may have to run it in its own folder
  • Run the application, "DDU.exe" I believe is the name
  • Select the "best option", Safe Mode and Reboot
  • After the computer reboots to safe mode, run DDU if it does not open automatically
  • Choose the "best option", clean install and reboot I think it is called
  • After restarting install the driver you downloaded first
  • Restart if prompted
