How To Fix Errors and Issues Caused by GraphicsPerfSvc.dll

Option 1 Reinstalling Windows

Reinstalling Windows surely is a great way to make your PC fresh again. Usually, people reinstall the Windows either because the PC is really slow (because of a malware or long term usage) or they just want to try a new operating system.

So, here are a few methods to reinstall your Windows.

Setting the Boot Order

Setting the Boot Order is important because it helps you boot from the right device. Basically, the Boor Order defines the order in which the drives will be checked for operating system information by your computer. Usually, your Hard Drive is at the top of the Boot Order. This is mainly because your Windows is installed on your Hard Drive.

Now, when you are trying to install a fresh copy of Windows then you would want your computer to look into your device i.e. Windows CD/DVD or Flash Drive with Windows. This is because if your Hard Drive is at the top of the Boot Order then your computer will check your Hard Drive first, it will find the operating system and simply start your Windows. So, you will change the Boot Order and make sure your Windows CD/DVD or Flash Drive on the top in order to make sure that your computer checks this device first. Once the computer checks your Windows bootable device, it will start the installation process without checking your Hard Drive.

Since this options will guide you through the process of installing Windows, it will be useful for you to know how to change the Boot Order.

  1. Restart or start your computer
  2. Look for a message "Press <some key> to enter SETUP". The message will vary a little bit depending on your manufacturer. This message will be shown when your manufacturer's logo is appearing on the screen. Note: The key that you will have to press will also vary depending on your manufacturer. It might me Del or F2 or some other key. But it will be clearly mentioned on the screen.
  3. Now you should be in your BIOS, if you aren’t then you should be able to see a menu with multiple options. One of these options should be BIOS settings or BIOS menu (or a variation of it). You can use your arrow keys and to navigate through the list and select the BIOS option. Press Enter to go into an option.

  4. Now, you should be in the BIOS menu. Look for a tab or option named Boot Order or Boot. It should either be a separate tab/option or it might be a sub option in the Boot tab/option or it might be the Boot tab itself. So, navigate (by using arrow keys) to a tab/option related to Boot and you should find this option there.

  5. Once you are in the boot order, you need to change the boot order. The external drive that you will be using to boot into Windows should be on the top of the order. For example, if you have a Windows 10 CD then the CD ROM option should be on the top of Boot Order. On the other hand, if you are using a bootable flash drive then Removable Devices should be on the top. Use the enter key to select an option and then use arrow keys to move its order. The instructions of how to change the boot order should be given on the screen as well

  6. Once you are done, exit the BIOS and save the changes you made.

  7. Restart your computer (if it doesn't already)

Once your computer restarts, it should boot through your bootable device.

Reset PC : Windows 10

Reinstalling the Windows 10 is pretty easy. Although you can reinstall the Windows 10 with bootable disk method, there are certain built-in features that will help you reinstall the Windows 10 without using a bootable disk (unless you can’t get into windows). You can reinstall your Windows from scratch with just a few clicks. So, let's have a look at these options first and then we will move to the bootable disk method.

Windows 10 comes with a Reset PC option. This option is probably the easiest way of reinstalling the Windows. The Reset PC comes with 2 options: Keep my files and Remove everything.

Keep My Files: If you want to keep your personal files then Keep my files option is for you. This will bring your system back to default configuration and delete all your desktop installed apps but keep your personal files.

Remove Everything: Remove everything will, well, remove everything. All your files, settings and apps will be removed. It is like a complete reinstall of Windows from scratch. If your PC came with a pre-installed Windows 10 then it would be in the same state as it was when you first bought it.

Restore Factory Settings: If you are one of those people who got a computer with preinstalled windows then you might also see a third option names Restore Factory Settings. This option will make your system to go back to its original settings. For example, if your computer came with a Windows 8 preinstalled and now you are on Windows 10 then Restore Factory Settings will bring your computer back to Windows 8.


So, here are the steps for Resetting your PC from Windows 10.

  1. Press Windows key once
  2. Select Power icon from the Start Menu
  3. Hold SHIFT and select Restart option
  4. Go to step 12 below
OR (if you can’t get into Windows but you can get to the login screen)

  1. Select Power icon from the windows login screen (bottom right)
  2. Hold SHIFT and select Restart option
  3. Go to step 12 below
OR (if you can’t get into Windows at all)

Note: This method requires a bootable CD/DVD or a Flash drive. You don’t need a Windows 10 license or product key for this method. So, you can borrow a Windows 10 CD/DVD or Flash drive from anyone. You will use it just to get to the Advanced Startup Options.

  1. Insert a bootable drive (CD/DVD or flash drive) of Windows 10
  2. Restart or start your computer
  3. Press any key when the message "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." appears on the screen. If this message doesn’t appear then go to the Setting your Boot Order section above.
  4. You should see a Windows Setup Screen. Click Next
  5. Click Repair your computer link
  6. You should be in the Advanced Startup Options screen. Select Troubleshoot

  7. Select Reset This PC

  8. Select Keep my files or Remove everything (depending on what you want). Go to the beginning of this section if you aren’t sure which option to choose.

  9. Wait for the PC to prepare for the reset
  10. If you selected Keep my file then select your account and then enter your password. If you selected Remove everything then you will see two options: Just remove my files and Fully clean the drive. Select whatever options suits you best.



  11. Click Reset

  12. Now, wait for the PC to do the reset. You should be good to go once the reset is finished.

Reset PC: Windows 8

Windows 8 have a similar set of features when it comes to reinstalling the Windows. Windows 8 also have a Reset option along with a Refresh option. Let’s have a look at what these are for.

Refresh PC: This is the equivalent of Keep your files option of Windows 10. This option will being your computer back to its default settings and deleting all the desktop apps while keeping your personal files safe.

Reset PC: This option is the equivalent of Remove Everything option of Windows 10. This will remove everything including the personal files, settings, apps and bring your computer back to how it came out of the box.


So, in short, Windows 8 have 2 separate options for completely removing everything and keeping your personal files named Reset PC and Refresh PC, respectively. Windows 10 have just one option named Reset PC which asks the user to select whether to keep the personal files or remove everything.

  1. Hold Windows key and press I
