    Just a heads up:
    A windows 10 update rolled out yesterday and completely messed up my video drivers. I got it sorted out, just had to remove them, then reinstall drivers and it works fine again.

    This is a just a preemptive notice for any win10 users who suddenly have massive video lag. Check your drivers before anything else.

    Windows is having a bad pattern recently of overwriting perfectly good video drivers with "updates" that bork the system. I replaced what I thought was a bad power supply only to find out that it was a faulty update. During the process of rebooting after installing the PS, windows rolled back the faulty update.

    I heartily recommend having some form of alternate booting and proper video drivers available for purposes of system recovery.

    Didn't effect me. It may just be specific drivers on Windows 10 and not a universal problem?

    Bump because the same thing happened again this morning.
    If you experience a sudden loss in playability after a windows update, try reinstalling your drivers. Fixes it for me.

    Win8.1 tried to push a video driver update on me the other day. Aborted it for reasons noted above.
