    To be exact, my computer temperature goes from 60-80 degrees Celsius when playing intensive games, like Fortnite.

    I have an HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop with:


    8.00 GB of RAM

    Is this increase in temperature normal?

  3. Computer makes buzzing and lags my games Windows 10

    Hi,

    This issue may arise due to: outdated drivers or third party conflicts.

    In order to help you better, could you please confirm a couple of things.

    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    • How are you playing the game? Is it through app or online game?
    • Do you get any error message while playing the game?
    • Is this issue specific to particular game or all?

    I suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Follow the below steps.

    Steps 1: I suggest you to install all the latest pending Windows updates as below and check if it helps.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “update and security”.
    • Under tab “Windows update”, click on the icon “check for updates”.
    • Then once you find the pending updates install it and check.

    Step 2: I suggest you to place your computer in Clean Boot state as below and check whether the issue persists or not.

    and check if it helps.

    To Update display driver, please follow these steps:

    • Press Windows + X keys and click
      Device manager.
    • Click to expand Display adapters, right click the adapter and click
      Update.
