    static sound/FPS drops XFX AMD Radeon HD 6950 1GB


      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
