fixing win 10 lag

Recommended Posts

im tired to death of this pos OS,

the endless animations & sneaky programs running

for no good reason makes this fukker constantly micro lag.

 

i also have zero interest in learning this <deleted> to do it myself,

so is there any program that shut down all the drivel

all by itself ?

the built in lag with earlier and subsequent Windows platforms; has been around ever since XP SP3 got it's DNA spiked by IE9 - and never came back to normal...

OP, maybe describe what the problems are, what programs, what usage etc. Is it slow to load websites, slow to boot, slow to switch between applications etc.

Also the specs of your PC, you may benefit from some extra ram, HD is full, .

Once you open a program, the OS isnt doing much at all.

Interested to know what you mean by endless animations ?

more specifically when i attempt to play eu4,

the micro lags means the game dont respond to my input instantly, thusly i click again and the program freezes,

and then i lose half a year worth of a campaign.

 

the laptop was spanky new 1 year ago,

with several times the hardware i had on

my previous flawless machine that had win xp sp 2

Thats not anything to do with windows OS. It appears that game has some minimum hardware requirements, 8GB Ram, 1 GB of dedicated video ram, NVIDIA GeForce 9600 or higher.

Your laptop would need to meet these requirements. Unless you have a laptop with dedicated GPU, onboard shared video may not be enough.

Possibly internet speed issues.

its not just that, everything is lag,

i just opened a chrome page, but it didnt open,

so i kept opening it, and after a few minutes,

several chrome pages opened,

everything in this pos os happens after i wanted it.

its not snappy like win xp.

and yes, i do have a dedicated video card and latest cpu

 

on top of that, my previous 8 year ole laptop with the power of a modern watch

ran eu4 without the slightest lag,

but then again it also was running on win xp sp 2

 

also i play eu4 off line so it got nothing to do with internet

Sounds like something is running in the background using CPU or Ram, Ctrl Alt Del to open task manager and see whats using resources. Shut down everything in start-up tab and see if things improve, turn off other than microsoft services etc. Turn things back on one by one.

the only thing that shows up in task manager is firefox,

and now ooshutup.

i dont know how to shut down programs manually on win 10, i hate this os, and i dont know which programs can be safely shut down even if i could find them.

i wish there was at least a button to disable animations

In task manager (click show more details) will show if something is using resources, percentage of cpu, ram etc currently being used. also tabs there to disable start-ups.

I still wouldn't be blaming windows as such, more looking for what is using all the system resources. windows doesn't just lag/freeze for no reason, that happens due to no resources or maybe even a hardware fault.

 

If you have a major freeze up/lag, try and correlate it with whats in error logs.

thanks man, finally.

i can see that firefox is standing out,

consuming 2 gb memory, and my memory usage is 92%. it also consume 30% cpu

and my total cpu usage is 50%
