Severe, sudden lag spikes that make game unplayable across all games played. Spikes occurr randomly every few minutes and last roughly 20 seconds each before running smoothy again. Regardless of needed specs, the issue occurs universally. Currently tried to play Half Life 2 (2004) and the issue is just as promient on other games such as Dark Souls 3. Curiously, I recently discovered the issue is temporaily fixed by plugging or unplugging my computer, however constantly having to do this every few minutes to fix the lag becomes irriating very quickly and I am currently trying to find a long term solution.

I just did this last night and booted up a game this morning to test, and unfortunately it did not fix the problem.

I think your gpu is too weak to play a graphic intensive game like half life,
maybe your , both the games are demanding and they need better gpu.
So i think upgrading the gpu might help u get stable Fps and a smooth gaming experience

And to be honest what the developers tell about the minimum requirements to be able to play a game
is just absurd, maybe the minimum requirements just lets u just run the game but the smooth experience
of the game
