Windows 7: Poor Performance and driver failing on 970

Poor Performance and driver failing on 970

Over the last couple of weeks my GPU has been performing way below what it should(like 10ish fps on a game I used to run at over 200). I am also getting spikes where everything goes slow, audio messes up sounding staticy and slowed down,, lasts for about 10 -60 seconds sometimes resulting with a message that my driver failed but recovered it happens even when doing nothing high performance like watching YouTube videos with no other programs open. Also my start up seems to be slowed down a lot, it used to take about 5 seconds now it takes about 30. Also no BSoD yet. Also card has not been overclocked at all.

Here is a list of what I have tried:
-clean install of old drivers(tried 3 different ones[352.86/350.12/347.88])
-Turned Link state power management off in advanced power settings
-hardware acceleration off in chrome
-did a system restore to before the problem began
-clean start up

when I was in safe mode and when i had the driver uninstalled I noticed no problems although it is hard to tell like that so I could be wrong.

I read that perhaps it is a voltage problem (P00 power state)that can be fixed by changing the bios with a bios tweaker but I have no idea how to do that.

Try loading defaults in BIOS.

that seemed to help alot but I am still getting the performance spikes that mess. Also I know it is not an issue with heat, dust or virus's.

The problem seems to have gotten worse I had one of the spikes that lasted over 30 mins, intell I restarted. Also it seems to be messing with my monitor the logo for my monitor and its menus have a corrupted look to them as in its all white squares and unreadable text.

Are you monitoring temps by the way? Get HWInfo and check the temps for both GPU and CPU.

I am monitoring temps and they seem good, I'm at about 35ish for everything other than GPU which is about 45ish. Also how do I load defaults in bios?

Temps are good, yes.

Enter BIOS as usual and it should be either in the first screen or the exit menu. If you have changed boot orders and other settings yourself, then those will revert to factory defaults. So you will have to re-do them, takes 5 minutes tops.

Also while you are in BIOS, try:
- disable C1E and Intel SpeedStep (IEST) and see if that will help, turn them back to defaults if it doesn't help.

Are you on a high performance power plan? And is minimum processor state at 100%?

Also try turning off Core parking (may or may not help, have to see):

Enter the following two commands at the command prompt (run as administrator) and press enter after each: (you may need to restart for changes to take effect)
powercfg -attributes SUB_PROCESSOR 0cc5b647-c1df-4637-891a-dec35c318583 -ATTRIB_HIDE
powercfg -attributes SUB_PROCESSOR ea062031-0e34-4ff1-9b6d-eb1059334028 -ATTRIB_HIDE

Then open power options, under processor change min/max cores to 100%.

The dump files from the BSOD may give some idea of what the problem is but seeing as the request for the logs was ignored then who knows.
