Hi, I have 8.1 running great on my PC, but it randomly has desktop lag not while playing games.

My system is a MSI Z390 mobo
I5 9400F cpu
1660 video card.

The lag can sometimes stay until i reboot and other times it is just a couple minutes

I have done the polling rate on the mouse with no change.

Also done the nvidia scaling to GPU, made a hell of a difference on performance but not lag.

Any help appreciated please

SSD or Spinner? Is the RAM maxed out?

Have you done any registry tweaks?

If you were not across the pond, I'd just say, "Bring it on down here, and I'll tweak it out for you", but......

Getting the best out of a computer is what I've been doing for over 4 decades.
I have 10 PC's, and none of them LAG.
And, most of my PC's were given to me as "Broken, and beyond repair".

Answer my first three questions, and I'll know how to proceed.

Thanks for the reply, It is on a ssd drive, similar to you I have been building / repairing / modifying pc's for 30 years and usually can work things out myself but this is one I can't.

Yep to the tweaks, all my versions of windows are heavily tweaked

Thanks again
