Performing a clean boot can help resolve various game problems by eliminating conflicting software and services that may be interfering with your gaming experience. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to perform a clean boot:
Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog box.
Type “msconfig” (without quotes) and press Enter to open the System Configuration utility.
In the System Configuration window, go to the “Services” tab.
Check the box next to “Hide all Microsoft services” at the bottom-left corner of the window.
Click on the “Disable all” button to disable all non-Microsoft services.
Now, go to the “Startup” tab in the System Configuration window.
Click on “Open Task Manager” to open the Task Manager.
In the Task Manager window, go to the “Startup” tab.
Disable all startup items by right-clicking on each item and selecting “Disable”.
Close the Task Manager and go back to the System Configuration window.
Click on “Apply” and then “OK” to save the changes and exit the System Configuration utility.
Restart your computer to complete the clean boot process.
After performing a clean boot, your computer will start with a minimal set of services and startup programs. This will help identify any conflicts or issues that were causing game problems. You can now launch your game and see if the issues persist.
If the game works fine in the clean boot environment, it indicates that one or more of the disabled services or startup items were causing the problem. You can gradually enable the services and startup items back in the System Configuration utility to identify the specific culprit. Once identified, you can either disable or uninstall the conflicting software or contact the software vendor for further assistance.
Performing a clean boot is a troubleshooting step that can help isolate and resolve game problems. It ensures that your computer is running with minimal interference, allowing you to enjoy a smoother gaming experience.
Remember to re-enable all the services and startup items after troubleshooting to restore your computer’s normal functionality.
