Premiere Pro performance lag

So basically the lag is so intense that even when I hit pause the program won't pause until like 3 seconds later. The footage itself is laggy as hell unless I render everything over and over again. 

I've tried switching my renderer through all different types (CUDA, Open Cl, Software Only) with nothing improving anything. I've cleared my media cache. I have one other program running which is Chrome.

In the last week I kept getting a driver error message pop up at the start and so I thought that might have been the issue. So I followed the adobe steps and installed the other NVIDIA GeForce Driver that's supposed to be specialised to run Premiere and such -- although I no longer have the error message popping up at the start nothing else has changed and the lag is just as bad. 

On playing the timeline I checked my task manager to see that my computer jumps up to 100% CPU usage (with Premiere Pro going up to 91.8%), however when I'm not I'm at 9%. These clips are not insane in quality or anything and I've edited with them multiple times now with no such problem at all except for the past 2 days when suddenly the program is grinding to work. 

I've had issues like this in the past and it's just been solved by changing the Renderer but that's not doing anything to help this time. I'm at a loss so any suggestions will help. 

 

I use a high power ASUS laptop btw and have Premiere Pro 2020. I know my computer isn't the issue here because I've never had any issues in the past with editing on PP or AE. 

 

My laptop:
GeForce GTX 1060

Driver version 452.06

In(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU @ 2.20GHz

15.85 GB Ram

 

I just wanna reiterate: I had virtually no problems with PP's performance until like 2 days ago. Don't try to tell me my computer is out of date or something cos I literally bought it this year. If anyone should be fixing their stuff it's Adobe. To jus say: oop, sorry, the fact that our code for our program requires such a ridiculous amount of power to run isn't our problem it's yours buy a new computer. That's not the solution here. If you wanna make your program this insane w the power it needs to run basically (cos dude I'm not even putting any effects on my project, it's literally just cut clips) the problem is with you Adobe, and you should at least offer two default settings: one for "lower" powered computers, and one for tank military grade computers.

did you check the renderers after updating your GPU driver?

do you still have Open Cl ? 

if you only have software only enabled after the update, try 

to update from the vendor's site: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us

make a clean installation

Yeah I've tried out each renderer before and after updating and properly installing my GPU driver. I still have Open Cl as well as CUDA.

what kind of footage are you working with?

if smartphone footage, you have to transcode them to constant frame rate using Handbrake,

if other mp4(H.264) footage, try to convert them to something like QuickTime Cineform YUV 10 bit
