Advice requested

Sometimes my computer runs Borderlands 3 in ultra, butter smooth. Sometimes the program won’t start. Sometimes it starts and runs very poorly with lots of lag between using controls and having the screen respond. If it’s lagging, I can usually quit to main menu and restart the character a few times and then the game runs smoothly. I haven’t a clue! Any thoughts would be most welcome. This is me:

I’m going ahead and letting win 7 install some “important” updates.

Frankly…windows 7 is the problem.

9 times out of 10 windows 7 users suffer quite a bit with this game.

I wish you luck…but you should consider upgrading to 10.
I hear the “Free upgrade path” is still lurking around if you know where to go.

(Legally/legit of course)

In any case…hope your updates work out…but be prepaired for more headaches. The support for Win 7 is being killed off if it hasn’t already.

I appreciate the reply. Thanks!

Been noticing the game resets my graphics settings alot! I’ve been reseting my computer settings and game settings everytime i turn on my pc. It has helped me to solve my issues. Something in the game updates is resetting all my settings ingame.
