    Constant lag spikes

    Hello, for the past 2 weeks or so I have been experiencing lag spikes that occur every 10-20 seconds. I am at a resting ping of about 45, but these lag spikes can range from 200-500 and last about a second. While these are manageable, they can also be very frustrating while playing games (which is the only time they happen, or at least when the spikes are most noticeable). I play games on both xbox and PC, but I do not experience these lag spikes on xbox while playing, so that has led me to believe that this is a windows issue rather than an internet issue. At first I thought it would be something that would just go away after a view days if it was an internet issue, but since it has been happening for a few weeks now I thought it would be a good time to reach out. I have done a lot of research about this, and while many people have posted "solutions" none of them have seemed to work. Please help! Thank you!

    Constant Widnows 10 lag spikes in games?

    Thanks for the tip - this fixed it for me.

    Tried all the other popular suggestions to no avail. Disabling location service eliminated the lag spikes during MWO and HoTS matches. I won't have to waste my time to revert back to Windows 8.1.

    Random lag spikes


    We would like to know more about your lag issue:

    • What browser are you using when you experience a lag?
    • Does the lag occur in a particular game?

    In the meantime, we suggest you run the System Maintenance troubleshooter. Here are the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • On the left pane, click on View All.
    • Click on System Maintenance to run the troubleshooter.

    Looking forward to your response.
