Fps drops and crashing

My game goes down to 1-5 fps every 2 rounds and then the game crashes, I've updated my drivers, checked my rams, checked my cpu, checked the power supply, reinstalled windows but nothing seems to be working and its not like my pc is terrible I am able to run valorant on 90-100 fps before it suddenly goes down to 1-5 fps then crashes

jidat
jidat5w ago

annie
annie5w ago

jidat
jidat5w ago
I would reinstall the drivers
annie
annie5w ago

jidat
jidat5w ago
Graphics drivers
annie
annie5w ago
yea i did
jidat
jidat5w ago
Using ddu?
annie
annie5w ago
whats ddu @jidat ?
jidat
jidat5w ago
Display driver uninstaller Do it using ddu
annie
annie5w ago
okay
jidat
jidat5w ago
Then download the graphics drivers using the website Also use ddu in safe mode btw
annie
annie5w ago
@jidat do i have to use ddu im scared cus the website doesn't display the updated drivers ir only shows outdated drivers available for download
jidat
jidat5w ago
What website
annie
annie5w ago
intel
jidat
jidat5w ago
Uhd 520 stopped getting updates a long long time ago Integrated graphics don't get updates anyway
annie
annie5w ago
yeah i know but the website has old old versions of the drivers
jidat
jidat5w ago
How old
annie
annie5w ago
like 2018 or something let me see bro 2015 LMFAO
jidat
jidat5w ago
The last update was in 2016 There should be a 2016 one i think Also u can just update it inside device manager if it doesn't work out Just make sure to use ddu in safe mode Also make a restore point If u don't have one alrdy
annie
annie5w ago
there isnt the drivers i have r 2022 @jidat
jidat
jidat5w ago
Huh U can always update through device manager
annie
annie5w ago
i have a question why does van 1 exist why
jidat
jidat5w ago
Nobody knows exactly why
annie
annie5w ago
and why has valorant become terrible in terms of performance after some updates it used to run well this is sooo stupiddddd
jidat
jidat5w ago
Its running the same for me tbh
annie
annie5w ago
it might just be my pc cus irs happening w other games goo oo too
jidat
jidat5w ago
Yeah most probably
annie
annie5w ago
I'll just factory reset my pc again
jidat
jidat5w ago
I would do that yeah
annie
annie5w ago
this started happening after i factory reset my pc for the first time btw
jidat
jidat5w ago
Completely reinstall with a usb too
annie
annie5w ago
im not sure if its related reinstall what windows?
jidat
jidat5w ago
I would assume u didn't do it properly Yeah windows
annie
annie5w ago
i just factory reset it completely from settings everything gone because my laptop was eating up space out of no where i had 50 gbs left nd the onlh apps i had were discord roblox val
jidat
jidat5w ago
Hm that doesn't reinstall windows tho
annie
annie5w ago
what do i dooooooooo
jidat
jidat5w ago
I would do it with a usb with windows on it
annie
annie5w ago
im so frustrated i dont have an usb
jidat
jidat5w ago
Well thats an L
annie
annie5w ago
what do i do ugh
jidat
jidat5w ago
U can do it without a usb but that is not an actual reset
annie
annie5w ago
im so frustrated bro its si bad to the point where ROBLOX can't run for more than 15 mins roblox crashes too
jidat
jidat5w ago
Yeah ur windows is corrupted U r on windows 10 right?
annie
annie5w ago
yes windows 10 pro how do i uncorrupt my windows but it can't be my oc dude because i know people w shittier pcs and their game doens't crash even though they're playing on 40 fps
jidat
jidat5w ago
Its not about ur pc Its about ur windows
annie
annie5w ago
how do i fix
jidat
jidat5w ago
Reinstall windows Recommended to use a usb
annie
annie5w ago
@jidat it doesn't crash anymore at all it just drops to 1-2 fps for 2-5 minutes and then returns back to normal another thing I've noticed is when the fps drops my ping also shoots up to 90+
jidat
jidat5w ago
Still looks like a corrupted windows
annie
annie5w ago
reinstalling didn't work i found a temporary solution @jidat using windowed fullscreen helps it doesn't lag or crash but the fps isn't that good i get 100 with fullscreen 60-70 with windowed fullscreen nvm doesnt fix it i hate my life
