Input lag only when running a game

This is my first time posting on this forum


I have an odd problem. I play a few games on Shadow, but my main game is Apex (the others are also FPS games with the same problem). My issue is major input lag. When I first launch the game, for 30-45 seconds, no input lag, but after that, when I move my mouse, about 400ms after, the cross hair moves. The weird part is that if I tab out of the game (it’s still running) and reopen it, the lag goes away for another 30-45 seconds. Happens every time to all the games I tried (Apex, Fortnite, GTA V even an aim trainer I found on Steam).

To make this more interesting, I also use GeforceNow. ZERO issues. No input lag or any problems. 


On my end, I’m connected via Ethernet; 500mb/s up and down. I have an i7 and a 1060 Windows machine.


If anyone can help me, that would be amazing!
