    A few weeks ago. I loaded up steam as normal i tried to load up a game and it said you are unable to play this game as you must update your Graphics Driver, So i updated all my drivers including my Graphics driver. And now every game i play it stutters constantly, My FPS is fine, its just stuttering, I open task manager and when i play games, My GPU usage is from 90-100% when playing games and when i load up my PC it is around 50% when i'm doing nothing. But for some reason if i share screens on e.g Discord i am able to run relatively smoothly.

    Im thinking of sending my PC back to get a new Graphics card, but i thought i may as well ask before sending it off.

    My Specs Are, GeForce GTX 950A, i7-6700 CPU and 12 GB Ram

    But before i did this my PC ran perfectly!

    We know nothing about your PC and its operating system, so do the following in it:

    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) file.
    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
    Information about your PC will appear.
    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.

    These are the performance scores for the Intel processor and integrated graphics in your Lenovo(unknown model name/model number).
    Does it also have a dedicated graphic card?

    Many users have gone back to Windows 7 because of issues with Steam gaming when using Windows 10.
    I'm not a gamer of any sort, so I don't know if that's part of your issue.

    THIS is the most current Windows 10 64-bit driver(23.20.16.4901) at the Intel drivers site for the Intel HD Graphics 530 device.
    What version does your PC have?

    I re-read post #1 and saw you list a GeForce GTX 950A as the graphic device in your PC.

    If that's the case, your PC has 2 graphic devices - 1 integrated, 1 dedicated.

    THIS is the most current Windows 10 64-bit driver(390.77) for the GeForce GTX 950.
    I'm not sure if it'll install and work with the GeForce GTX 950A.

    What's the model name and model number and serial number of your Lenovo PC?
