    My games started lagging after installing new HDD


    Hello there folk's. So I have a dell G5 laptop i7-8th gen with 1060 maxQ design graphic card. A few weeks back I decided to extend my storage from 1TB to 2TB as this is the max upgrade option possible for my laptop. After installing the new HDD I tried to copy past all the files from my old HDD to the new one. Once the process was complete I try to run some game from steam and it Didn't work so I decided to delete the games and reinstall them again. And after this they all worked and the main issue started. My games lag for 10-15 seconds every now and then. I don't know how to resolve this. It would be a great help if you guys could suggest me something. Thank you.

    :)

  2. Card games lagging!

    Hi Helena,

    If it's an online game, the lag issue may have been caused by your Internet connection. It can also occur due to the game server issue. We'll need to gather a bit more information to better identify what's causing this. Kindly answer the following:

    • Have you made any changes prior to this issue?
    • What card game are you having issues with?
    • Is the issue the same with other games?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far to resolve the issue?

    Meanwhile, if the card game you're playing is downloaded from Windows Store, we suggest running the
    Windows apps troubleshooter. The apps troubleshooter can help resolve issues with games and applications downloaded from Windows Store.

    Regards.

  3. Installing a new HDD to replace a HDD of the same size that failed.

    I have a Windows 10 OS installed on my C: drive. I had data stored on an HDD designated as D: drive. That second drive failed and was replaced by a new HDD. Both are the same size and type of drives, except different manufactures. The new HDD is not
    listed in File Explorer. It is listed in Computer Management under Device Manager as a Disk drive. Disk Management under Storage does not list the new HDD.

    I have tested the new HDD with software downloaded from the manufacture and it has passed all tests. At least that software was able to access the new drive and perform low level tests to see if it is operational.

    Looking at the events log for this HDD, I find an event warning that says "Device ... was not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match." Opening up the properties indicates drivers have been installed. Reading the volume information results in: "Volume
    information for this disk cannot be found"

    I suspect that the problem with the volume information is associated with the warning in the event log. I removed the HDD, restarted the PC then shut it down to start the installation process over again. No change in the event log or status of the new
    HDD. Can anyone suggest how I can get past that warning?

    Looking forward to your response.
