Hi all

 

I have a fairly good laptop but since the update it's killing it. Norton is using 1.5gb but FM is using the same. I've 16gb of ram so not sure how it's happening. I7-7700HQ 2.80ghz 8 processors and Nvidia GeForce GTC 1050. it's only when I play FM this happens. I did change anti virus to Norton around same time. Sometimes it's fine but when it happens I just need to leave it for 15 minutes and it's fine then. Any ideas? Any help is appreciated.

 

Btw 5 Leagues, 77,000 players. It was fine literally up until the update/I changed to Norton so must be one of them.

Try running the game without Norton, particularly if it is scanning the game while it is running.

Exactly what I was going to say.

I was never a fan of Norton.

Do you need a third party virus solution anymore?  I haven't had one for years and have never had any problems.  In fact, as may be the issue here, I found it actually used to cause more problems

Hm, if you run Norton try another one instead bcs Norton is notorious for interfering with games and render them unplayable.

I myself use Avast or Avira...

So I ended up getting that new BIOS error of Alert TPM etc etc. The fix was to open laptop and disconnect battery etc

So I ended up buying the Torx screwdriver. I didnt end up fixing the TPM issue but both fans had a huge amount of fluff/dust around them. Cleaned it and I may not have fixed the TPM issue but I fixed the FM slowness issue. Its breezing through now no issues :D

Thanks for all the feedback all. Appreciated.
