This one, I have never seen before. I heard my GPU fans working a bit harder than usual today, and I couldn't figure out what it was. So I closed Chrome, closed any app using a great amount of memory, and went to the system monitor I have on my desktop. I noticed that EVERY SINGLE TIME I move my mouse (Razer Naga Chroma), the (brand new!) GPU load shoots up as high as 15 percent! I'm talking, one inch of mouse movement. Here's what I have done so far:

  • Restart
  • Switched USB ports
  • Switched mice
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled the driver
  • Screamed bloody murder
  • Closed/uninstalled/reinstalled Razer Synapse
  • Made sure GPU driver was up to date
  • Made sure mouse driver was up to date

Below are my specs:

  • ASUS GeForce 1060 3 gb
  • Intel 6700 @ 3.4 ghz
  • 16GB DDR4 RAM
  • Windows 10 64-bit

And this computer is hardly a month old.

Thank you in advance for your help.

 

EDIT: I also ran scans with MalwareBytes and Kaspersky; all clean.

Odd, all i know is that newer versions of windows past winXP use the gpu for the desktop, more then that i dont know if that's normal or not.

 

Could mess with this and see what happens.

AH i see your in win10, probably the same deal though "best guess" , winXP or older dousen't  use the gpu, vista or newer it douse.

 

Don't know my self what needs to be done in win10 to 100% disable it from using the gpu, i know i looked in to stopping win10 at one point from locking vsink on and it was hell with all most no fixs
