Absurdly extreme FPS issues

I’ve been having insane FPS issues for months now. I can’t use scan and repair because it can never finish the scan without failing, and then I’m forced to uninstall and then reinstall the game completely. After doing that my FPS issues come back shortly after, it’s so extreme that when doing epic battlegrounds and the horde and alliance clash, my FPS doesn’t just drop in to the single digits, the game will literally lock up until I’m dead, freezing for 5 to 10 seconds straight, unfreezing for a second or two with 3 FPS, then going back to locking up again, rinse and repeat. This is constant, it doesn’t matter if I’m low populated area or high populated area, it just happens more frequently if there’s more action going around me. If I open my macro screen and then exit it, my game will lock up for 5-10 seconds before the game resumes, the same thing happens if I try to reset my details damage meters, the game will almost completely lock up on me. I don’t know what else to do then to just take my laptop to a computer specialist and pay them to find out what’s going on. The thing is I’m only having this issue with WoW. Anyone experiencing anything similar and know how to fix it?

Are you using windows live wallpapers? How about any external software that came with the PC? Overheating? FPS lockups isn’t enough info. We need a DxDiag at the least to start helping you.


Unfortunately I’m not computer savvy, no clue how do that, I went and did the windows + R thing, but other than that I don’t have the slightest clue how to post the information on here.

I’ve saved my dxdiag, but it’s too big to post, the instructions said something about posting 4 tilde marks above dxdiag, but I don’t understand what they’re talking about.

I’m getting this message.

Body is limited to 99000 characters; you entered 103187.

If the file is to big, then upload it to pastebin or a site similar, and then post the link to it under the four tildes.

It will look like this.

Hi Delichious

Let’s see if we can get that DXDiag report. Double check that you have the DXDiag and not the MSinfo. Instructions for both are on that support page that Elocin linked.

Past things up on Pastebin. Provide the link code portion of the URL - example below.

(The green bold portion at the end of this example link: https://pastebin.com/Qk28Ed1P <=== this code)

Alternately you can place the link in a Preformatted Text box. Paste the link in the chatbox - then highlight it. Click the preformatted text button along the top of the chatbox - looks like this </>

Will look like this example afterwards:

Can’t tell if the nVidia GPU is being engaged, as I see crashes for it in the error section.

Card name: Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630
Monitor Name: Generic PnP Monitor
Monitor Model: LC27RG50
Monitor Id: SAM1009
Native Mode: 1920 x 1080(p) (60.000Hz)
Output Type: HDMI

I also see Overwolf and Curseforge causing some issues.

I’ve been using Overwolf and Curseforge for as long as I can remember, why is it causing issues now?

Where else could someone get addons if not from Curseforge?

dont have it open after u installed the addon

Aww, so like don’t have it open in the background?

yeah i use curseforge so before play just pop it up manually and update whatever i had, then close it, u can be sure cheking the process task, should be no issue, also always reinstall is a way to test

There are live kernel errors related to the nvidia driver, and the Intel driver is 4 years old. Since the Intel would normally hand off, you may need to try to update that driver from Intel.

My NVIDIA GeForce Experience usually tells me if there’s an update, it’s saying everything is up to date.

Only on the Nvidia card. It wouldn’t tell you anything about Intel drivers.

The suggestions in this post helped, it’s not as bad, but my game still has random FPS drops, and the game sound will stutter/loop for a few seconds randomly at time. Closing curse forge in the background helped, I also installed Intel Driver and Support Assistant, it found one driver that need to be updated, but other than that, everything else was fine.

Did you try HWMonitor to check for overheating?
