Try disabling HPET.
Device Manager> Look for the High Precision Event Timer(HPET)> Disable it.

Hi, I’m a volunteer here on the forum. Just to set some expectations: Blizzard doesn’t consider high fps a technical support issue (like crashing or connection issues). Because of that, you may not receive official support in this topic. However, I’m willing to look over a diagnostic report to see if we can spot any glaring issues.

Can you add a DxDiag here?

Click here to show/hide DxDiag instructions
  1. Press Windows Key + R, then type DxDiag and press Enter.
  2. In the DxDiag window, click Save All Information.
  3. Name the file “dxdiag” and click Save.

To add it to your reply here:

  1. Open the text file and copy all of the text.
  2. Paste the text in your reply.
  3. Highlight the pasted text and click </> on the post editor.

If your DxDiag does not fit in one message, you can post it on Pastebin.com and provide the hash code (the numbers/letters after the .com) in your reply.

While you wait for assistance, I suggest checking out this pinned thread:

And also opening the Windows Reliability History tool, which will likely show you what’s happening in the background to cause any errors.

here is my number paste bin for the diagnosis. ya it says 144 but i get frame drops every team fight it feels .


Your SSD is a bit low on space, you want to keep 12-15% (~123GB) of it free to perform correctly. This can affect game performance.

This is a video timeout error, where Windows decides that your GPU is taking too long to respond.

Microsoft recommends that you remove all GPU drivers if you experience this error with Display Driver Uninstaller, and then reinstall them. Since you’re on the drivers from March, which have a known bug in them, I highly recommend doing this step.

If you continue to experience issues, you may want to adjust or remove the following apps reporting errors:

Razer Synapse (no error, but there is a known issue mentioned here)

If you exhaust everything I’ve mentioned here, please do check your Windows Reliability History for errors. You can look them up on Google or Microsoft’s own database.

i followed most of the steps. would just updating my driver to the newest update help?

It is the second thing I mentioned :slight_smile:

so i did all of the steps didnt see any improvements. i did a little bit more diggind. and looks like i had v sync enabled in nividia control pannel. once i turned that off my game started running a million times better. Thank you for the help and quick responses. it is very much apreciated. i know as volunteer it must get tiring answering the same questions all day. :slightly_smiling_face:
