Restarted my PC, and now my FPS is lower

Recommended Posts

As I was getting ready to do another flight, I decided to buy a scenery and install it. FPS was great at mid 40's and smooth throughout the various time cycles. I was satisfied and ready to start another flight. But I thought it might be a good idea to restart my PC as it was on the whole night for a previous flight.

Then and there, I restarted. Loaded up my addons, and started up P3D. I load up into the same scenery, same aircraft, same gate, but my game is horribly laggy at a MAX 22FPS. Do keep in mind, I didn't change any settings inside or out of P3D. I continued to fly while barely reaching 50 FPS in the air whereas before, I would easily reach Mid 60's to high 80 depending if Im looking straight at my aircraft or up into the sky.

Not sure if this helps, but my Core 0 was 100% which I know is normal, and my GPU went MAX load.

Did the weather change? GPU going to max load sounds like clouds.

nope, the weather stayed relatively the same since this was all within 5 minutes from shutting down to starting up.

Is it possible that when you restarted something happened with your graphics driver? Your got going to max load suggests that your bad FPS stems from a massive bottle neck from your gpu, but if the hardware wasn’t changed, the only thing that could have happened was some sort of driver update, reversion or something of the kind. You might want to check your driver is up to date, or at least that it’s still the driver you had installed before you restarted your computer.

A cold boot might be worth a try in such an event--that's completely depowering the PC by first shutting down normally and then either turning the switch off at the power supply (if it has one) or unplugging from the AC supply and leaving it off for ~30 sec or so so that everything in the computer is fully de-energized.  I've had GPUs (and USB devices as well) go wonky on me with issues that persisted through multiple warm boots (i.e. Windows restarts), and a complete power down did the trick.

When you restart or shut down your PC in Windows, parts of the computer still remain powered.  Although the devices should fully reset when warm booting, sometimes it doesn't work that way.
