    Hello, I hope I am posting in the right place, if not please let me know.

    Here is something I encountered few times, very rarely though.

    All of the sudden or like now after turning the PC on I have noticed all working at very low speed, simulator, Blender, even browser.

    I looked in Task manager, loads are very low.

    Question @Judas and @Calliers and anybody that can give me any hints.
    Is there any source I can look at to know why the PC slows down like that?

    Thank you!

    @arb65912 Hmmmm, could be anything, I will let others make proposals first.

    This is the reason whenever I build a new PC I always use all new hardware and don't mix in old hardware from my old computer, I sell that at as a whole to someone else.

    what happens when you perform a restart?

    If a restart (start ~> power ~> Restart) resolves it, it's a common fast startup/hybrid hibernation glitch that occasionally occurs, some more often than others. This first started impacting nvidia and amd and even intel graphics, but has been for awhile hitting intel and amd cpus too where the system doesn't appear to be reving up properly (low utilization).

    Considering how fast the systems start, a viable solution to the symptom to prevent it from occuring is first make sure you have sleep disabled, and if that doesn't sort it, then disable windows FAST STARTUP (go into power options, additional power options, on the left hand side of the next window click "choose what power buttons do", then uncheck "turn on fast startup"... if may be greyed out, of which you simply click the "change settings that are currently unavailable" at the top beside the shield, then proceed to disable it.

    another alternative solution is to install the latest chipset drivers and gpu drivers.

    Thank you gentlemen, I will set the start the way @Judas described.

    As for the component mixing as @Calliers commented, should it make a difference if components are compatible.
    For example if I change processor in my system to a better one, why would that affect anything if mobo is good for it?
    Or GPU? Totally independent thing, no?

    Technically I still have the same PC as I bought in '96... There is absolutely nothing left of it, but I have been in a continual state of upgrade ever since. @Calliers takes things to the extreme regarding upgrading, nothing wrong in that either.

    I have been the same for years as cash was always an issue so upgrade the Mobo but keep CPU , Ram and GFX , then Upgrade the GFX but CPU is bottlenecking, upgrade Cpu now ram is letting me down by the time I got this up to date that was out of date ..my system was ok but never great always a generation or 2 behind

    My brother in law has a fire damage clearance business he cleaned out a warehouse of thousands of PC parts around christmas time, as lock down eased I visited and with advice from here built a new system ..its soooooo good to have something that runs up to date games at decent spec

    sometimes a full on new start is worth it if its an option I love my new system but will miss the step by step upgrade and the Beige tower :(

    Sometimes, when things aren't going properly, I will shut down the PC, unplug the power cord, press the POWER Button to discharge any residual power and then... plug the power cord in and turn on the PC. This has worked wonders for many years.

    All the other suggestions above are quite good, too!

    I just had to use the old "unplug/re-plug" operation on my mouse. The cursor had started acting like it had a mind of its own. Unplugging and then plugging it back into the USB port solved it....for now.
