Hello, my name is Tom
http://speccy.piriform.com/results/Yai2vWQOPfT3GnmgjmQnoxu - here is my PC specs
Okay , let me explain then what happened , lately everything been fine , my pc was running ok , for example when I played league of legends I would have normal 100-140 fps.
Then randomly my monitor desktop would start flashing , turn off for a secound and turn back on , and everything was fine afterwards for rest of the day , when i wake up next day and turn on pc same thing would happen ( and it always happened a bit after turning on pc and playing) then few days later It would happen again , this time as soon as I turn on pc , except this time the monitor didnt turn back on after going off, I had to restart pc couple times and at some point it would work normal.
And this has been happening for last month or so , yesterday I found out that the GPU fan isn't working , so thought maybe thats the cause? I checked the heat on it (u can see it on the screenshots up there) and was surprised cause the GPU heat seems normal , but the CPU one isnt , even tho the CPU fan is strong and working correctly?
So that got me super confused , so the next day (today) as soon as I woke up I opened my computer and tried to clean the dust from it and stuff inside of it , I didnt re apply the thermal paste under the CPU fan cause it seemd like it was still there and was okay , so after doing everything and cleaning the computer I tried to boot it , but I had this monitor issue once again , this time it was diffrent , the LG logo would show and would start flickering , so I tried restarting the pc and switching cables etc etc , after one hour the pc turned normal and everything was fine , I turned on League of Legends and I noticed how much laggier everything is and couldn't understand why , It should be better after cleaning right?
My fps was down to 50-61 (and would randomly drop to 30-40) while my old fps used to be 100-140 , and no I havent changed anything in the game settings or anything , everything is still the same as it used to be , also I checked and my CPU usage would go up to 80%-90% while playing League (same while playing other games) so I looked up youtube video on how to fix CPU usage , and the guy in it told to go to task manager and "set affinitiy" for a program that is causign the high CPU and turn off half of the "CPUs" there for the program and it should fix it , and after I did it it seemd fine , the CPU in league was down to 50% or 40% , but the laggs and low fps was still exactly the same?
So here I am now writing this post , with no clue what else I could try!
even right now while writing this thread im lagigng cause i have 2 tabs open which isn't normal... right now the CPU is 94 C ( thats what the Speccy is showing)
I appreciate all the help , and will be checking this thread all the time to answer you guys as soon as I can , thanks!
