    1 game on D: Drive but very slow


    Hello! I run only 1 game on the D: drive of my Windows 10 computer, and my C: drive is about 75% full. However, when I run the game that is on my D: drive, it acts as though the memory is full-the game is good for about 5 minutes, then the FPS drops to, like, 0.5 frames a second. My computer has had other memory issues with games recently, and I haven't even had it for a year yet. I want to know-why is the game on my D drive dragged down, when I haven't used even 25% of D drive's storage, and how can I fix it?

    :)

    Which version of Windows 10 do you have? Right click Start, click Run, type "winver" (without quotes)…

    64 or 32 Bit? ... Control Panel > System, look under System type.

    Ok.

    First off you've nowhere near 120 (119) gig of memory. What you are stating is drive size. Looking at the specs of that notebook Dell G3 15 Gaming Laptop shows the most memory that notebook came with is 16gig. With that (given what you did post spec wise) I'm going to assume this is the one you have - Dell G3 15 Gaming Laptop

    All that out the way, two suggestions first...

    1. Go to Dell's website and find the latest drivers for your notebook - start here for driver support (sorry I don't know your exact model number)
    2. Make sure you have the latest patches for your game - Go here for Forza Horizon 4 support (sorry didn't see patches)
