My graphics card ran well for a very long time till it just suddenly took a poo. Every time i try to play a game ex: World of tanks, fallout, dyinglight, gta5 etc. my audio gets static and then becomes distorted. Then the fps drops from 40-50 straight to 5-10 every 5 seconds or so. The ping also goes up as this happens (if i am playing an online game). It never did this before so idk what to do.

This is what i have tried but it failed:

-reset OS

-delete and re download drivers

-Update sound card

-made CPU go to max power

-Tried Overclocking

-check internet (for online gaming)

-download all necessary drivers (directx, framework etc.)

-check antivirus full scan and nothing

-anti-malware found a Trojan, removed but no success still

-rechecked with anti-malware to make sure Trojan was gone but still no success

-Tried disabling all but one sound system

-tried setting application on Highest Performance

-Defrag HD

-many other things i cant remember...


Here's my PC specs:

i5 intel core CPU 3.30GHz

Ram 8.00GB DDR3

Windows 10 64-bit

xfx AMD Radeon HD 6950 1GB


If someone could please help it would be GREATLY appreciated. I have been trying for weeks but cant get anything to work. Thank you in advance
