I installed windows 10 sometime before december last year... Everything was fine... Until I installed the update for the drivers sometime in december, which was supposedly going to make my gaming experiences better... Well it DIDN'T! All my first-person games are lagging every 3 seconds no matter how I adjust the performance... Now it's too late to change back to windows 8, and I'm stuck with this driver-update that made my games worse, when it clearly stated that it was going to make them better! What do? I've tried everything, but it doesn't work! Here are my specs:


Operating System

                      Windows 10 Home 64-bit


                      AMD A6-5200                   52 °C

                      Kabini 28nm Technology


                      8,00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-12-28)


                      Hewlett-Packard 2170 (Socket FT1)         52 °C


                      Generic PnP Monitor (1366x768@60Hz)

                      512MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 8400 / R3 Series (HP)   51 °C

                      1024MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 8600M Series (HP)

                      CrossFire Disabled


                      931GB Western Digital WDC WD10JPVX-60JC3T0 SATA Disk Device (SATA)    31 °C

Optical Drives

                      hp DVD RAM UJ8C2 SATA CdRom Device


                      Realtek High Definition Audio


  The games that lag are: Skyrim, Oblivion, Fallout-New Vegas (Steam), Lord Of The Rings Online, Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2, Morrowind, Gothic 2, Mass Effect 3.... I haven't played other games, so I don't know if the other ones lag as well...
