    Lagging issues in Video Games after upgrading to Windows 8.1

    I did a huge mistake when I decided to install Windows 8.1 upgrade. I was so happy with Windows 7. I have a gaming pc. I got an upgrade message and I thought going for the new OS is better. I will get a more stable solution. But after upgrading almost all games are crashing. I can't play any of them. If I re-install I will lose the all the trophies, money, etc I got in the game. It is like playing everything from start.

    Any kind of help with this will be appreciated.

    I had seen this issue commonly when it comes to upgrades. It is always better to stick with fresh setup. Because here when you are upgrading the windows, old system files and drivers still remain in the system. And that cause bugs. When you go with complete setup you are installing all things properly. It is right that you will lose everything. You must try to backup your files and go ahead with fresh setup.

    You have to follow some steps to resolve the problem. First go in Control Panel > Uninstall program and in that wipe out things which are not required. Second thing you can back up the game files. For that based on each game you will have to locate the save game files. Copy them and keep it some other place.

    And when you re-install the game you have to overwrite the file back. This is the best way to get your all games files back. It is necessary to run all latest updates and install patches. Or else the issue will remain common.

    If the games are not starting up then it means the video driver is not proper. You will have to run a fresh driver update for each of them. You can go on web and look for the new drivers. Sometime new things provided through Windows update also. Depending on your gpu model locate the latest drivers and install it in your pc and then try back. Install new version of .net, directx, opengl, etc. Try to go on the game site and see whether any patch is provided to fix this problem.
