howdy there, I built this PC when I was probably 14/15, so 6ish years ago. Old parts and not anything special, but i could play games and edit videos so I was a happy camper. It ran everything I needed it to, and a few night ago it basically just tanked.
I basically use it just to play Minecraft and Overwatch and run adobe. Beforehand it had no problem running these before, but Overwatch degraded to literally <10 FPS, and maybe <30 FPS if I’m lucky.
I checked task manager and nothing seems out of the ordinary, CPU, GPU, and Memory usage are pretty normal all things considered. I reinstalled windows to see if that would help, and while it did lower my memory usage (from 90% —> 60%), it still refuses to run even Discord well. I can barely have multiple tabs open, and playing any sort of media will cause it to become a snail.
I scanned with my antivirus and my system came back clean, so AFAIK its not a virus or malware.
It crashed when I tried to update my GPU and CPU drivers, and when I rebooted it my Motherboard gave me an F4 error (Faulty BIOS chip). I’m presuming that this is the problem because everything else in my PC seems to be working fine, but I’m not very knowledgeable on computers so I could be wrong. I’ve thought about formatting but I think this is a hardware problem vs software. Any ideas on what could be going wrong? Please and thank you! Task manager screenshot before I reinstalled windows 10
