So my computer has been under performing greatly the past few weeks. I'm not sure why, it happened out of the blue.
For instance, the internet on it has gotten extremely slower. Connecting to a voice chat via discord takes a few seconds, and it constantly stutters between 2 and 1 bar the whole time. Connecting to websites is slow too. It takes a few seconds though load even though before it loaded once I hit enter on the address. I've also experienced constant lagging playing PUBG as well, getting the Network Error mid game.
Playing Overwatch isn't any fun either. Before the game ran smooth, as it should given my computer, but I constantly get under 10 frames no reason whatsoever, then it'll run smoothly for a few seconds, and immediately hop right back.
I've decided to just wipe my hard drive and SSD and start new, however I'm not 100% sure on how that would go with Windows. Would I have to reinstall Windows or would it stay, just completely refreshed?
