    Hello.

    I think I found a solution for people who are experiencing FPS lags in games, including RaceRoom, this worked for me very well in all the games what I am playing.

    Please try following:

    • close all the applications
    • Windows-Logo-Button[​IMG]+R -> type cmd
    • open as administrator
    • enter bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock
    • confirm with enter and a message should appear with a confirmation
    • restart your computer and open the application
    After testing: Restart your computer again and test if the problem has vanished.

    If there are any problems (with other programs or Windows),

    the opposite command is: bcdedit /set useplatformclock true


    I believe this should work for Windows 8.1/8 Users as well, but I am not sure for 100%, because I am using Windows 10.


    I hope that this little command will make you happier and your gaming will become much more smoother and stable. For my PC it made some serious magic.



    I can't explain how it works in words, but it works in fact! And that's more than enough!



    Best regards, Yevgeny.

    I was playing different games through the night, after I disabled HPET and I can tell you that everything works fine.
    According to HWMonitor all the parameters remained same as if was before.

    I also noticed that every action became faster and smoother!

    Not everyone has that option from their bios. It can be disable in the bios but this command is useful indeed. HPET its called ( High Precision Event Timer is a hardware timer used in personal computers )

    If you get an error about element not being found, then HPET was disabled in the OS and wasn't being used. If you don't get an error, then it was enabled and now disabled.

    Some people like you are reporting are saying that "Faster boot up time, smoother gaming, more responsive and snappier system"
    But its worth nothing that if you have an older CPU its better to have it on.

    Thanks for that @Yevgeny Lazorenko , I was aware of HPET but haven't even think about this since i am running win7 on my main gaming system but my i was about to go Dual boot with Windows 10 on the second OS and also my secondary pc is running windows 10 and i am using that machine make race recordings so this command might help.

    here is a practical test done by someone.
    With HPET (useplatformclock):
    Without HPET:
    without runs much smoother

    when you get this message, HPET wasn't installed before in your Windows-Installation.
    So with the command "bcdedit /set useplatformclock false" you've inserted the configline know, but you will not notice any difference than before.
    IMO you should perform the bcdedit /deletevalue-Command again, which should know work just to be sure, that it doesn't mess up anything in future...

    I know you're all trying to be helpful but there seems to be 2 or 3 different things to type. If it's not installed, what do we do?
