Need help: Lag playing Online games

Postby Hitman » Mon Nov 07, 2016 11:59 pm

Hi there,

I’m a newbie to online games. I noticed lags while playing online games.I have a good internet plan with a high bandwidth ( I discussed with my friends and one of my friends suggested to use Iolo system mechanic. I didn’t notice any changes using the trial version.

My system configuration is Anyhow, recently my PC completely frooze while playing online. Found some solutions online to try with the video card and no errors were reported when I did the memory test. I reinstalled the graphics drivers and updated windows 10 also. Still the issue is not resolved. Has anyone faced the same issue? Please, advice and share your ideas.

Ok, first question is what game? Do you have it in ALL games?

Make sure your video card is not overheating as even some brand new cards could have a faulty cooler. Multiple programs available like hwmonitor and gputemp.

Lower your graphics settings in the game to test if that is the problem. Lower them WAY down and try playing and see if you still have the problem.

Try the nvidia beta drivers.

I Also had the same problem before and in my case the solution was changing the windowed mode of the game (so I see what's happening while I game) to full screen mode.

In some cases the latency of the connection will cause you to lag in live events.
